ESET releases security products for Mac

Related Special Reports

ESET, a San Diego-based digital security firm, announced it has launched the next generation of security products for the Mac OS X platform called ESET Cyber Security Pro and ESET Cyber Security.

The appearance of Mac-related malware, such as the Flashback Trojan that infected 500,000 Macs this past April, has highlighted the fact that cybercriminals are no longer focused on PC users alone.

"Although the amount of malware targeted at the Mac platform remains low compared to that aimed at other major platforms such as Windows and Android, it has been steadily increasing since 2004," said Andrew Lee, CEO of ESET North America. "That's a troubling trend and one we're committed to addressing. Our new Mac solutions protect against the most advanced malware threats, while still offering the simplicity, speed and 'light footprint,' users expect from ESET products."

According to a recent Macworld magazine poll, half of Mac users employ antivirus software on their computers. Both Cyber Security and Cyber Security Pro add an extra layer of protection to the built-in Apple Internet security features and offer more than a dozen new or enhanced features to protect consumers.

Features include: parental control, personal firewall, Web and email scanning, easy access to the applications, cloud-powered scanning, and removable media protection.
