WHAT IS NORTON ANTIVIRUS DUAL PROTECTION FOR MAC?

DO I NEED NORTON ANTIVIRUS DUAL PROTECTION FOR MAC?

 
 
If you run both Mac OS X and Windows on your Mac and frequently connect to the Internet, then the simple answer is yes. Everyone knows the Windows operating system is highly susceptible to virus attacks but what about Mac OS X? 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:

- Yes, Mac operating systems are more robust in terms of security than Windows in general. This is in part due to the fact that Apple manufactures both the hardware and the operating system for their computers, allowing for tighter integration of the different components.

- However, a lot more computers connected to the Internet run on Windows compared to Mac OS X or Leopard. 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.
 

 

WHAT CAN NORTON ANTIVIRUS DUAL PROTECTION FOR MAC DO FOR ME?

 
 
Norton Antivirus Dual Protection for Mac will ensure you are protected against online threats at all times whether you're currently running Mac OS X or Windows. Below are a breakdown of the features you get thanks to the strengths of Norton Antivirus 2009 with Antispyware and Norton Antivirus 11 for Mac combined in one package:

  • Protection against viruses, worms, Trojan horses, bots, rootkits, spyware, spam, phishing, browser exploits and more. Email and IM scanning supported.

Norton Antivirus 11 for Mac Protection

 
As with Norton Antivirus 2009 with Antispyware for Windows, viruses on your Mac are automatically detected and removed. If you receive a lot of emails on a daily basis, you’ll be happy to know that Norton Antivirus 11 for Mac scans attachments and removes any detected malware. The same is true for files you download from the web: they are cleaned up before they even reach your hard drive.
 
The Auto-Protect function runs constantly in the background to ensure your Mac is always protected from online threats. When a virus is found in a file, the application will instantly attempt to ‘repair’ that file. It then alerts you it has successfully done so. Otherwise the file is put into quarantine, which is really just a special folder on your hard drive where the virus cannot damage your data. Once there, Norton Antivirus 11 for Mac can attempt to repair the file once more or remove it; you might also be able to delete the file. If it’s actually not a virus, you’ll be able to restore the file easily.

You can schedule scans to happen whenever you’d like. If it happens a scan needs to start while you are in the middle of a CPU-hungry task, just use the Snooze feature to delay the scan from 15 minutes to an entire day – it’s that simple. Compressed files can be scanned and since this is a resource-intensive process (as files are uncompressed, scanned and recompressed on the fly), a setting can be specified so that files are immediately scanned only after they are uncompressed by you.
 
Finally, an all-new dashboard widget indicates how secure your computer really is at all times.
 

If you run both Mac OS X and Windows on your Mac, don't take any chances and protect both operating systems. Get the strengths and ease-of use of two leading antivirus products combined in one package: order Norton Antivirus Dual Protection for Mac today!
