Kaspersky Anti-Virus For Mac 1.0

Send Article to a Friend

Internet security company Kaspersky has unveiled its first product targeted at Mac users, Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Mac. The software is mainly aimed at preventing Mac users from unknowingly acquiring Windows-specific viruses and then passing them on to Windows-using contacts whose machines could be affected. Features include real-time download and attachment scanning, minimal CPU usage, automatic updating, and the inclusion of the latest Kaspersky anti-virus technology. Although we do find a new entrant in the Macintosh anti-virus world interesting, we don't recommend anti-virus software for most Mac users (see "Should Mac Users Run Antivirus Software?," 18 March 2008). ($59.95 new, 49.4 MB)

$59.95? For real? In comparison to the cost of protecting Windows with a ratio of OS to virus - the cost to Apple users should be Free to a Dollar right now. Unless of course Kaspersky is planning to release Ten Thousand+ virus' for the Mac soon.

I'm running this on my iMac since a day or so, and must say the interface leaves much to be desired. The 'feel' is not Mac-like...
