Kaspersky Security for Mac
Malware doesn’t just affect PCs. Virtually every day sees an increase in the volume of malicious code and Internet threats that could compromise the security of your Mac and the personal data your store on it.
With advanced, real-time protection from viruses, Trojans, spyware, phishing attempts, dangerous websites and more, Kaspersky Security for Mac can keep your Mac, your data and your children safe - plus it can prevent your Mac from passing PC malware to family, friends and colleagues on your network.
Real-time protection against Mac, PC and Linux malware
Kaspersky Security for Mac uses both traditional and cloud-based technologies to deliver advanced protection from known threats and new or emerging threats - including viruses, Trojans, bots, spyware and more. Improved!
Protection against phishing and malicious websites
Before you even open a website in your browser, Kaspersky Security for Mac checks the website against a database of phishing sites and dangerous URLs. It also checks for any malicious code on the website. New!
Advanced Parental Controls to keep your children safe online
Monitor and limit your children's Internet usage, block access to inappropriate sites, prevent the sharing of your private data - such as phone numbers - and control online, social-networking communications. New!
Defeat keyloggers, screen-capture malware and identity thieves
When you need to enter personal or financial information onto web forms, the unique Virtual Keyboard uses mouse clicks that can't be intercepted by keyloggers, screen-capture malware or identity thieves. New!
Familiar, Mac-style interface
With its Mac-style interface, Kaspersky Security for Mac is incredibly easy-to-use. Key features and a real-time update on your Mac’s protection status are always easily accessible on the main interface. Improved!
Kaspersky Security for Mac is compatible with the latest operating systems for Mac, including the new OS X Mountain Lion 10.8 - which is due for release in summer 2012.
Combining local antivirus and cloud-based protection
Using local antivirus databases and cloud-based information resources, Kaspersky Security for Mac helps to ensure your Mac always has the most up-to-date, secure and reliable protection. Hourly updates keep your antivirus databases up-to-date, while cloud protection technologies - including Kaspersky’s Urgent Detection System reference databases of dangerous applications and websites - enable rapid reaction to new threats.
Securing your Internet experience
All files downloaded from the Internet - via any web browser - are scanned for malware. Whether you use Safari, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, the Kaspersky URL Advisor accesses cloud-based information about website reputations - in order to alert you about links to suspicious and dangerous websites. Also Kaspersky Security for Mac efficiently detects and blocks phishing websites. In addition, Kaspersky’s Virtual Keyboard helps to protect your logins, passwords and banking details from being intercepted by keyloggers or screen-capture malware.
Putting parents in control
In addition to setting time limits on their children's use of the Internet, blocking access to inappropriate sites and preventing specific personal data from being shared, parents can view detailed reports on what their children have been doing online and also view their children’s social-networking correspondence. Kaspersky Security for Mac can also block specific file types from being downloaded - including music and video files, applications or archives.
Allowing your Mac to perform
Kaspersky Security for Mac is designed for efficiency - so it has much less impact on your Mac’s performance than many other security products. In order to minimise the effect on performance, Kaspersky’s unique iSwiftTM technologies intelligently scan only new files and those files that have changed since the previous scan. For increased productivity, the scan speed is also balanced against the user’s activity.
