Macs are as vulnerable to cyber threats as any other operating systems, says eScan CEO
MUMBAI, INDIA: eScan, one of the leading Anti-Virus and Content Security Solution providers has launched its latest offering for Mac users, eScan Anti-Virus Security for Mac.
The enhanced features of eScan Anti-Virus Security for Mac can ensure that Mac OS is protected against Malware and other security threats in real-time. eScan Anti-Virus Security for Mac involves simple installation and provides automatic as well as manual updates with extensive logs and reports, a company release said.
Traditionally, Macs are believed to be less vulnerable to cyber attacks. However, similar to Windows OS, the recent developments show that with its growing usage, cyber criminals are focusing equally on finding vulnerabilities in Mac OS and its applications. Hence, in order to provide secured computing environment for Mac users, eScan has launched its Mac Edition.
Govind Rammurthy, MD and CEO, eScan, said, “Macs are as vulnerable to cyber threats as any other operating systems. Generally, IT users have an impression that Macs are less available to hackers due to their security technology. However, the OS has been facing a number of vulnerabilities lately and new vulnerabilities are disclosed regularly. Earlier, with Mac OS having only about 10 per cent of the market share, hackers generally did not intend to develop viruses that would only influence a smaller portion of the IT users. Over time, as the Mac user base is increasing, there is no doubt that it will become a tantalizing target. Hence, we now have eScan Anti-Virus Security for Mac that ensures that Mac users are safe from the evolving cyber threats.”
This easy-to-use security software detects and warns users about the suspicious behaviour of applications, thus providing protection from Zero-Day threats. eScan Anti-Virus Security for Mac is powered by the technologies that keep the computer’s memory and resource usage to the least, while ensuring advanced security to information assets.
