Top 10 Antivirus for MAC

7. Norton AntiVirus Dual Protection for Mac

Norton AntiVirus Dual Protection for Mac is designed for Mac users who routinely dual boot into Windows or who run Windows in a virtual environment on their Intel-based Mac. Given that Norton AntiVirus 11.0 for Mac seems more geared to protecting Windows users from malware relayed through a Mac, one has to wonder if it’s not a bit of overkill to offer both together. Wouldn’t one or the other do a perfectly adequate job on their own?

If you boot to Windows and Mac OS X about equally, Norton AntiVirus Dual Protection for Mac might be a cost effective means to secure both. But if you tend to favor one OS far more than the other, you may want to purchase a dedicated product specifically for that operating system and save a few dollars by installing a free antivirus scanner on the other.

8. Kaspersky Antivirus for Mac

Kaspersky Anti-Virus offers signature-based protection from all known types of threats including viruses, worms, Trojans and bots. Files are scanned when opened, downloaded or saved, restricting access to suspicious files and disinfecting them whenever possible.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus protection is not restricted to threats against files, music, photos and personal information on your Macintosh; it also defends against the 30,000 new threats that target other types of computers every day, preventing you from passing problems on to friends and colleagues.

9. McAfee Antivirus for Mac

Latest version of McAfee is equipped with full-feature on-access scanning and latest antivirus technology. But this antivirus has a shortcoming, that it is not geared towards individual, single machine users. However, for professional users, who need to protect their network, it makes for a good choice. Corporate clients often purchase three licenses, that cost around $110 for all three of them, but they necessarily may not be satisfied with the antivirus, due to the open ends in the antivirus.

10. ClamXav Freeware Mac Antivirus

A lot of people have taken to this virus protection software as it is a free to download antispyware and antivirus software. Once it is installed, on demand, the antivirus scans the system for any virus and is able to detect malware directed at Windows system. It does not offer real-time virus protection, hence iAntivirus scores over ClamXav. The user will also have to decide, which the folders, that need to be scanned are and when is the right time to scan them. It is also seen that in some cases, ClamXav is not able to identify the latest malware.
