Avira launches a new product for Apple MacOS systems at the end of March 2012. It is called Avira Free Mac Security and it is a free-of-charge product for both consumers and businesses.
The first version will be available in German and English.
Features, design and user guidance are based on extensive user surveys, design studies and usability tests. As a result, the Avira Mac Security follows a “back to the basics” approach, similar with the concept used in the Windows products. It provides the latest available Avira scan and protection technology and combines it with a super easy to use approach.
The focus of the product is very much on securing a Mac automatically and involving the user into the decision making process only when it is absolutely necessary or the user wants to be involved.
After the installation, the product automatically checks the security status of the Mac system:
- it updates the detection,
- performs a quick scan,
- checks for untreated viruses,
- checks if the Real-Time Protection is running
- the default update job is activated,
- fixes possible security issues
It will detect Mac viruses as well as Windows viruses, thus preventing that Windows viruses are spread via a Mac in a heterogeneous environment.
Avira Free Mac Security is fully licensed for consumers and businesses, the license getting automatically updated in regularly intervals. Businesses can also centrally manage the Avira Free Mac Security via the Avira Management Console. This requires a separate license file that Avira will provide upon request.
The product will be available for MacOS 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and 10.7 (Lion). Please note that the desktop versions only are supported.
