Kaspersky Security for Mac is compatible with the latest operating systems for Mac, including the new OS X Mountain Lion 10.8 – which is due for release in summer 2012.
Combining local antivirus and cloud-based protection
Using local antivirus databases and cloud-based information resources, Kaspersky Security for Mac helps to ensure your Mac always has the most up-to-date, secure and reliable protection. Hourly updates keep your antivirus databases up-to-date, while cloud protection technologies – including Kaspersky’s Urgent Detection System reference databases of dangerous applications and websites – enable rapid reaction to new threats.
Securing your Internet experience
All files downloaded from the Internet – via any web browser – are scanned for malware. Whether you use Safari, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, the Kaspersky URL Advisor accesses cloud-based information about website reputations – in order to alert you about links to suspicious and dangerous websites. Also Kaspersky Security for Mac efficiently detects and blocks phishing websites. In addition, Kaspersky’s Virtual Keyboard helps to protect your logins, passwords and banking details from being intercepted by keyloggers or screen-capture malware.
Putting parents in control
In addition to setting time limits on their children's use of the Internet, blocking access to inappropriate sites and preventing specific personal data from being shared, parents can view detailed reports on what their children have been doing online and also view their children’s social-networking correspondence. Kaspersky Security for Mac can also block specific file types from being downloaded – including music and video files, applications or archives.
Allowing your Mac to perform
Kaspersky Security for Mac is designed for efficiency – so it has much less impact on your Mac’s performance than many other security products. In order to minimise the effect on performance, Kaspersky’s unique iSwiftTM technologies intelligently scan only new files and those files that have changed since the previous scan. For increased productivity, the scan speed is also balanced against the user’s activity.
