WHAT IS NORTON ANTIVIRUS 12 FOR MAC®?
 
 
Norton AntiVirus 12 for Mac® is Symantec’s top-selling security product for Macintosh computers, including protection against the latest online threats such as viruses, spyware, software vulnerability attacks and more.

The product actually includes Norton AntiVirus 12 for Mac® itself, for Mac OS® X v10.7 (Lion), as well as Norton AntiVirus 11 for Mac® to protect computers running Mac OS® X v10.4.11 - 10.6 and for which both Intel® and PowerPC® processors are supported. 
 

 

DO I NEED NORTON ANTIVIRUS 12 FOR MAC®?

 
 
If you own a Mac and you frequently connect it to the Internet using a Macintosh computer, then the simple answer is yes. Many people believe Macintosh computers are inherently better protected against online threats than PCs; while this is partly true, Macs are not perfect in this regard:
 
Simply put, a lot more computers connected to the Internet run on Windows® compared to Mac OS® X. Evidently, programmers writing the code of malicious software to steal people’s identities might as well target as many computers in one pass as possible. This is why Windows®-based computers are more likely to be targeted by viruses and other malware compared to Macs.

However, this does not mean there are no threats capable of doing damage to Mac OS X®-based computers. There is no better proof of this than the recent "Mac Defender" (also known as "Mac Protector") malware infections of millions of Mac® systems.

 


WHAT CAN NORTON ANTIVIRUS 12 FOR MAC® DO FOR ME?


 
  • You will buy Norton AntiVirus 12 for Mac® first and foremost because viruses and spyware on your Mac are automatically detected and removed. In particular, all your iPhoto® pictures, iTunes® media and iMovie® projects are scanned and protected against online threats.

  • The Software vulnerability protection feature ensures that hackers cannot take advantage of any application "security holes" to install malware on your Mac, which would allow them to steal your personal information or take control of your system, among other things.

  • Your emails and instant messages are checked for suspicious attachments so you can communicate safely via iChat® or other means.

  • Your protection is always up-to-date with automatic daily updates, which will never slow down your computer because of their small footprint.

 

WHAT IS NEW WITH NORTON ANTIVIRUS 12 FOR MAC®?



This latest Norton AntiVirus for Mac® release is actually a bundle of two products, which aims at protecting as many Mac® systems as possible. The product contains Norton AntiVirus 12 for Mac®, which protects Apple's all-new Mac OS® X v10.7 (Lion) operating system, but you also get Norton AntiVirus 11 for Mac® in order to secure systems running Mac OS® X v10.4.11 - 10.6.

Norton AntiVirus 12 for Mac® is much lighter on system resources than the previous versions; it works quietly in the background so other running programs and your system in general are not slowed down.

 
Don’t assume you are safe from online threats because you own a Mac®. It is really easy to get protected and surf the web without worry using your iMac®, MacBook® and more: download Norton AntiVirus 12 for Mac® today!
