McAfee VirusScan for Mac is a tool that runs natively on both Intel and PPC based Macintosh computers.
It can be managed by McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator for scalable security policy compliance and graphical reporting. McAfee VirusScan includes true On Access scanning and supports scanning of Apple Mail messages on Mac OS X Tiger (10.4.0 & above).
Complete, Proactive Threat Protection
McAfee VirusScan for Mac uses on-access scanning to search for viruses and malicious threats every time a file is accessed. It automatically detects viral infections as they attempt to infect a system and protects against Macintosh, PC, and UNIX viruses. In addition, it has the ability to scan Apple Mail messages and attachments for malicious threats. It will also protect your users when they save or open files from network share drives.
Protection from Tomorrow's Threats
McAfee VirusScan for Mac uses heuristic analysis and generic detection that proactively protects against new and previously unknown viruses. The advanced heuristic analysis looks through the code in a file to determine if the actions it takes are typical of a virus. The more virus-like code found, the more likely the file is to be infected. To reduce the risk of false alarms, our positive heuristics approach is combined with negative heuristics, which searches for those things that are distinctly non-virus-like.
McAfee VirusScan for Mac can be managed by McAfee's ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO). ePO provides centralized policy configuration and enforcement as well as detailed reporting for VirusScan for Mac clients. Centralized management lets your business run efficiently and cost-effectively.
McAfee VirusScan for Mac uses Macintosh's Universal Binary, which allows you to install on either Intel-based or Power PC-based Macintosh systems.
