New: G Data AntiVirus for Mac

Optimum protection for Apple OS X and heterogeneous company networks

07/25/2013 | Bochum (Germany) 

Windows users are no longer the only ones being targeted by cyber criminals. Malware authors are increasingly targeting Leopard and Mountain Lion and the like. With G Data AntiVirus for Mac, the German IT security specialist is now offering a new security solution specifically for Macs with OS X, providing effective protection against viruses and phishing attacks. Not only does the program proactively protect against Mac viruses - it also provides additional protection for all Windows PCs that are connected to your home or company network. G Data AntiVirus for Mac also detects Windows malware and thus stops it from spreading further. G Data AntiVirus for Mac is now available as a download at a recommended retail price of £34.95.

Security for heterogeneous networks

Using an antivirus solution for Mac does not just protect your own Apple computer - it also protects Windows systems within the network. Computer malware that might not be dangerous for Mountain Lion and the like can cause considerable damage if forwarded to Windows systems. For this reason G Data AntiVirus for Mac also detects Windows malware and thus prevents the spread of malware through forwarded emails.

 

Designed for Apple - looking at the big picture

Thanks to the clear, streamlined user interface, users are always in control of the security status of their system and receive instant notification of malware attacks. Want to know which files are in quarantine and when the system should be scanned? Users need just a few clicks to retrieve all information or make individual program settings in the security centre.
