ESET for Mac Q and A

Here are a few questions to help you decide if you should have antvirus protection for your mac


“Why would we need Antivirus for a Mac? Macs don't get viruses?”

During 2006 the first threat was discovered for the Mac OS, Leap-A, a worm that spread via ichatinstant messaging.

Since the initial attack malware development has increased in-line with global sales and demand. Apple reports a steady growth of 36% for world-wide sales for the first quarter 2010 compared to the same period the previous year.

Macs on your network can act as carriers of Windows malware, passing infected files through shared folders or as email attachments.

“I‟ve tried antivirus products before and it just slowed everything down”

ESET NOD32 Antivirus is fast and light so you won't even know it is there. It is lightning fast compared to other products, even disk intensive operations like performing a full disk scan runs seamlessly in the background.

“We have a large network with a combination of platforms, how can I possibly manage any more software?”

ESET Remote Administrator provides a single management console to control your entire network supporting tens to thousands of endpoints whether they are running Mac, Linux, Windows or Mobile operating systems. ESET NOD32 for Mac can be deployed remotely with Apple Remote Desktop or LANDesk Management Suite. Your IT team can spend more time focused on productivity and less time maintaining software.
