Apple users are often convinced that their devices are more immune to cyberattacks. They’re correct. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t use a reliable antivirus program.

It is essential to protect your computer from malware, particularly in the wake of recent attacks such as WannaCry or Petya that have affected major institutions like the NHS and spread throughout the internet. Intego’s Mac antivirus software offers 24 hour protection and is designed specifically for the platform. It is a robust scanner which detects and neutralizes traditional viruses, worms spyware and adware, aswell as cross-platform threats.

The software is simple to use, and can perform one-time scans or a full scan on the hard drive. It can also search external drives as well as USB flash drives. A scheduler allows you to schedule automated scans, and you can also drag and drop files and folders to have them examined in a forensic mode.

Avira Antivirus Security Pro uses a hybrid approach that combines local antivirus scanning as well as cloud-based online analysis to provide additional layers of defense. The program is also on the lookout for hacks in browsers, potential ransomware, and other attacks that occur remotely. It’s a great suite, however it isn’t equipped with the most premium features you’ll find in rival products, like a firewall and password manager. But, it’s a good choice for those who want robust protection with a low cost.
