Kaspersky Lab released Kaspersky Security for Mac, a security solution designed to protect the Mac OS X environment from all kinds of threats, combining traditional security technologies with cloud-based methods.
The new solution also prevents Windows and Linux malware from spreading to other computers and, for the first time, provides an effective Parental Control feature set, protecting your kids from viewing inappropriate content online.
Kaspersky Security for Mac utilizes the latest protection technologies to better fight all types of threats, including Trojans, worms, spyware, adware and keyloggers. The file scanning module is activated during start-up and checks new and updated files automatically, minimizing impact on system resources.
The ability to detect and block Mac-, Windows- or Linux-specific malware also prevents the spread of malicious objects to other computers at home, or those belonging to friends and colleagues. The antivirus database is updated hourly to ensure protection against the latest threats, while cloud-based security technology reacts to the most recent malicious objects within minutes.
It also provides Web Protection features that detect and block malicious, fraudulent and phishing websites and alert users about each online threat detected.
Anti-phishing technology makes your Mac more secure, especially when you are using online banking or payment services. To protect confidential data such as credit card numbers or passwords, Kaspersky Security introduces the Virtual Keyboard. It comes as an extension to the standard Safari browser and also works with Google Chrome and Firefox.
Using this keyboard to enter sensitive information makes it impossible for criminals to intercept sensitive data using keyloggers. The keyboard pops up on screen at your request, and is accessible from all relevant password forms on web pages.
