Brand New Kaspersky Virus Scanner Now Available in Mac App Store
29 Nov 2011
Kaspersky Lab is pleased to announce that Kaspersky Virus Scanner, its new security solution for Mac OS X, is now available from the Mac App Store, a digital distribution platform for applications developed by Apple Inc. The new software provides basic protection for Mac OS X users and raises their awareness of the threats targeting the platform.
The product keeps the attractive Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Mac interface, and now offers on-demand scanning of the hard drive and external storage for Mac and non-Mac malware. Kaspersky Lab’s solutions for Mac OS X have always detected threats developed for Macs and other computers – giving them the edge over their competitors. Mac users who install Kaspersky Lab products can be sure that malware for Windows or Linux will not sneak onto their other computers through a mixed home network or shared storage.
Kaspersky Virus Scanner successfully detects and removes both Mac and non-Mac malware and automatically updates malware databases when it is running to enable the identification and elimination of newly emerging threats. But when you’re not scanning, it does not impinge on your Mac’s CPU performance.
Kaspersky Virus Scanner represents a step-up in protection compared to the built-in security available in Mac OS X. However, Mac users who want even higher security levels for their computers can choose Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Mac 2011, with its robust anti-malware protection, on-schedule scanning, instantaneous updates and use of Kaspersky Security Network’s cloud protection.
Kaspersky Virus Scanner has a multilingual interface that supports English, German or French. It is sold with a life-long license on the territory of Europe and North America. For more details about pricing, contact your local Kaspersky Lab office or visit your local version of the Mac App Store.
