ProtectMac scans your Mac for all threats, detecting the viruses worms, Trojans, and spy ware seen in both Mac and non-Mac devices.  The system is extremely easy to use while providing the user with an exceptional degree of control.  The system is only accessible to users with Admin rights, some programs containing further levels of authorization to guarantee no file can be added to the FileSafe list and no scan can be modified without the users permission.

The program is equipped with a file-access scanner, running unobtrusively in the background while providing real-time support.  The file-access scanner reads every file that is opened, closed, or copied, any application running, and any file downloaded off of the internet or from an email attachment.  Potential threats are immediately blocked and you are alerted by a display on the desktop.

Apple computers’ security and lack of serious viruses have made Mac OS X systems more appealing to customers.  However, while the risk of viruses on Mac OS X is less prevalent than those threats to Windows or PC, malware for Macs is being developed by hackers and remains a viable concern.  Mac viruses currently in existence have the capacity to delete files, steal sensitive information, disable programs, slowdown your system, allow remote access to your Mac or otherwise create software complications with your Mac.  ProtectMac’s Antivirus software protects your Mac against the viruses and security breaches.

Protection

ProtectMac is a safe and reliable product to work with.  The company claims to hire design engineers that have experience working with Macs for over a decade in the security sector.  These engineers continue to work closely with Apple to keep ProtectMac’s software current in accordance with new versions of the Mac operating system.

Features

ProtectMac is equipped with numerous features that enable the program to provide users with control and security without compromising the speed of their Mac.

The ProtectMac AntiVirus application is designed with the user in mind: completely customizable for advanced users or ready to scan on its own for beginners.  Installation of the program automatically sets your Mac up with scheduled background scans, managing any threats that could harm your operating system.  However, scanning options are available to users.  These options include real-time file-access scans, scheduled scans, automatic removable volume scans, user scans from the main application, and finder contextual menu scans.

ProtectMac also makes scanning easy with the ability to scan from finer.  It is as simple as right clicking on the program you wish to scan and a small semi-transparent window opens on the desktop to keep you informed on your Mac’s progress.

While ProtectMac has made scanning easy it has also guaranteed that all of their scans are up to date with the most current forms of threats being developed.  Checking daily for new viruses, downloading new threat identities, and automatically updating your product without any need for user intervention makes ProtectMac a competitive option for Mac AntiVirus software.

Ease of Use

ProtectMac is designed by engineers who worked with Apple on developing and producing the Mac.  The user interface is not only compatible with Macs, but also fits into the background of your Mac.

The program can be installed and left to run on its own, with automatic updates and scans.  Or easily manipulated to have scans fit your schedule or your specific needs.

For files, programs, or downloads you have concerns over, ProtectMac’s system enable users to check the potential threat with a simple right click.  Keeping in mind the user’s needs, ProtectMac has been designed to be very easy to use and extremely compatible with Macs.
