Developed by the company known for Norton, a popular antivirus and security software, iAntivirus for Mac performs well as a basic malware protection program with useful scanning and identification features. While it takes some time to complete the initial scans, the program does examine almost every part of the computer, helping to ensure that problems aren't lurking on your system.
After installing, the program asks the user to complete a full system scan, which takes several minutes to complete. The main window is well designed, with advanced graphics and labels, making it very easy to use. In the upper-right corner, a question mark button gives the user access to a Help menu, which is a good feature for those who do not often use antivirus programs. In addition, with iAntivirus for Mac, users can scan certain designated folders for malware, as well as links on their Facebook wall and any other links in their browser for phishing scams and other online frauds. Moving between menus is easy and everything is well-labeled and easy to follow. This application doesn't offer real-time protection from threats. It just scans the system on-demand, which is exactly what most users need.
While still rare, malicious software made to specifically target OS X does exist. Users looking for protection from such threats will find iAntivirus for Mac a helpful and streamlined option.
