ProtectMac AntiVirus is a security product for Mac OS X, designed to keep you safe from viruses and spyware. It uses many different techniques to detect malicious software, complimented by an updating system that automatically delivers and installs incremental updates in the background, to ensure that you stay on top of any security problem.
The ProtectMac AntiVirus application allows you to scan any area of your Mac or network, set up scheduled background scans, customize your installation, manage any threats that have been detected and displays a history of all actions performed by the product. Any file, folder or volume can be added to the view so as to make scanning easier.
At the heart of the product is a file-access scanner that is always running in the background in real-time, intercepting every file that is opened, closed and copied, any application that is launched, any file that is downloaded from the internet or email attachment that is extracted.
