Kaspersky to cater to the Apple market

Kaspersky Lab announced the release of a new product that protects Macintosh computers from all types of malware.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Mac is based on Kaspersky Lab’s new antivirus engine which increases system scanning speed thanks to improved processing of objects and use of system resources, particularly on dual- and quad-core processor platforms.

The new product for Mac OS X (versions 10.4.11 and higher) combines the advantages of the new antivirus engine with a security approach that is based on protecting home or corporate networks from multiplatform IT threats.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Mac scans files and email attachments downloaded from the Internet. The new product is also knwon for its distributed use of system resources: when user activity increases, the priority of the antivirus scanner declines, offering the user access to the computer’s system resources and increasing the performance of applications.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Mac was especially designed to meet the needs of this operating system, offering complete compatibility with all versions of the OS from 10.4.11. Other technical requirements include: a Macintosh with the Intel processor, 512 MB available RAM and 80 MB available hard drive space.
