On Tuesday, March 27, security company Avira presented its new security solution for Mac, the appropriately named Avira Free Mac Security. Unlike what some users erroneously think, there are security threats out there that target Macs. Avira’s new security solution protects Macs from viruses, Trojans, spyware, and other malware.

Avira Free Mac Security is a new security solution offered for free to private users, professionals, and businesses who want to keep their Mac OS X-powered machines safe and secure. When Avira says the new security solution is free, it means free. There’s no price tag and there’s no advertising or annoying pop-ups to compensate for the lack of a price tag. Avira Free Mac Security is just a free security solution that will protect the Mac OS from malware threats.


“Here at Avira’s security labs we’re seeing more viruses, worms and Trojans designed specifically for Mac, and also more Macs transporting Windows viruses when they collaborate with PCs, mobile devices and other hardware.” explained Travis Witteveen, COO of Avira. “Starting today, we’re stopping Windows viruses from creeping onto your Mac, as well as disabling the malware that is intended just for Mac. And we are giving away Avira Free Mac Security to everyone so that we can all live free, no matter what OS religion you may follow.”

Before you go get the application, here’s a quick look at its main features:
  • A very user friendly and quite simple interface that you will immediately get accustomed to.
  • Restore optimum protection levels by simply clicking “Secure My Mac Now”.
  • Scans are performed regularly and the security solution is updated automatically. The integrated schedule does it all so you don’t have to.
  • The different scan profiles let you scan typical malware hideouts, the full system or individually selected files and folders.
  • Remote management via the Avira Management Console (AMC) allows businesses to install, configure, monitor and update network security from a single server
