Antivirus utility for Mac
Unfortunately, the era of virus-free computing for Macs is over. It means that members of the Apple crew should be shielded against Mac-specific virus attacks to ensure that their hardware and software are safe. Avast Free Mac Security provides a protective barrier that can withstand even the most ruthless malware assaults.
Avast Free Mac Security has three protection modes: Web Shield, Mail Shield, and a File Shield. The first two modes help to scan the incoming data, thereby protecting a Mac from incoming attacks. File Shield mode, on the other hand, scans data stored on a hard drive as a means of ensuring that no harmful software has found its way into your system. The utility works marvelously in non-commercial settings. However, if you want to use Avast to protect your business network, you have to pay for a more advanced Pro edition.
Avast is an on-demand virus scanning utility, which relies on the signature-based detection to keep a Mac malware-free. The malicious content scanning can be also conducted on a scheduled basis, which is extremely convenient for some users. The utility also scans a router to ensure that it is not vulnerable to executable shellcode scripts.
Avast Free Mac Security is an excellent utility, the high performance of which has been repeatedly confirmed in a variety of independent lines of investigation. Furthermore, due to a moderate impact on a Mac performance, you won’t experience system hangs during active scans initiated by the app. A data-rich interface of Avast Free Mac Security will be appreciated by those users who like to fiddle with the frequency of notifications, system scans, and other niceties of the tool.
