Avira Launches Free Antivirus Software for Mac Platform
One of them is Avira, which today announced the release of Avira Free Mac Security software. It's free for everyone, from home consumers to professionals and even businesses, without exception and without any annoying advertising or marketing pop-ups, Avira says.
"Here at Avira’s security labs we’re seeing more viruses, worms and Trojans designed specifically for Mac, and also more Macs transporting Windows viruses when they collaborate with PCs, mobile devices and other hardware," explained Travis Witteveen, COO of Avira. "Starting today, we’re stopping Windows viruses from creeping onto your Mac, as well as disabling the malware that is intended just for Mac. And we are giving away Avira Free Mac Security to everyone so that we can all live free, no matter what OS religion you may follow."
Halleluiah, can Avira get an iAmen? Some of the features included in Avira for Mac are one-click repair functionality, an integrated scheduler, real-time protection, remote management, and more. If you're interested, you can download the free security software here.
