McAfee VirusScan for Mac provides complete, proactive malware protection for Mac systems and users. Using proven protection methods, it stops all types of viruses and malicious code, including spyware, adware, Trojans, and new, unknown threats.
VirusScan for Mac delivers:
Centralized, simplified security management — With the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) platform, you can efficiently deploy and manage your Mac, Windows, and Linux clients on your network, giving you better security visibility across your entire infrastructure. Control policy configuration, deployment, and reporting for all your endpoints from the ePO platform’s single, web-based console.
Proactive threat protection — Uses heuristic analysis, generic protection, and on-access scanning to detect and remove viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, adware, and other unwanted threats before they infect your system. VirusScan for Mac guards against Mac, PC, and Unix-based viruses.
Continuous and on-demand virus scanning — Automatically scans for threats each time a file is accessed. Also scans on demand with file drag and drop.
Seamless security updating — Automatically pulls the latest malware updates from McAfee Labs, our worldwide, 24/7 security research team.
Stop every type of virus, spyware, adware, and other malicious code that targets Mac OS X or Microsoft Windows. McAfee VirusScan for Mac can even detect compressed malware files and previously unknown viruses.
Allow end users to operate Macs in your environment and ensure their data is protected.
Get continuous policy enforcement for multiple files, directories, and volumes, including volumes on remote Macs connected through your network.
Deploy and monitor VirusScan for Mac using the familiar Mac OS X Aqua user interface. Alternatively, use the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) platform for easy deployment, enforcement, management, and reporting — all from a single console.
Check files only when they are accessed to determine whether they’re infected with malware. Initiate on-demand scanning using file drag and drop, and schedule full-disk scans to run at convenient intervals, such as overnight or during off-peak hours.
Scan Apple Mail messages and attachments for threats, and protect users when they save or open files from shared network drives.
Count on streaming updates from McAfee Labs — our worldwide, 24/7 security research team — to ensure full compliance and up-to-the-minute protection against viruses, worms, and other threats.
These are minimum system requirements only. Recommended requirements are in parenthesis, where applicable. Actual requirements will vary depending on the nature of your environment.
