Eset launches new cyber security solutions for Mac
Dubai, March 25, 2014
Eset, a global IT security leader, has released two new cyber security solutions to protect Mac users against phishing attacks and social media based exploits.
The new and improved Eset Cyber Security Pro and Eset Cyber Security solutions come with added layers of protection to Apple’s built in Internet security features.
“Mac users no longer enjoy a virus free environment and attacks on these systems are now far more common than before,” said Pradeesh VS, general manager at Eset Middle East.
“The Middle East is a big market for Apple devices and users here need to understand that this gives hackers a good reason to target them. Phishing is particularly successful and with the rise of social media, more threats are emerging from social platforms.
“With the new security products, we now extend the expertise we have in protecting Windows and mobile devices to the Mac OS. These fast, efficient and effective new security solutions for the Mac platform have the same small system footprint, ease of installation and user friendly experience Mac users expect from us,” he added.
Key features that have been added to the products include Eset's new Anti-Phishing Module, which extends protection to cross-platform phishing attacks; and the Eset Social Media Scanner, which protects users on Facebook and Twitter.
Eset Cyber Security and Eset Cyber Security Pro are fully compatible with Apple’s latest operating system, OS X Mavericks (10.9), a statement said.
Both include a number of improved native functionalities and settings to deliver an overall Mac-like feel familiar to Mac users together with the low system demands.
The solutions also prevent the spread of malware to other computers via Mac and daily used apps and eliminate also Windows and Linux based threats which might harm Windows-based systems in a Mac user’s network. – TradeArabia News Service
