iAntiVirus get four of five stars in review
MacNN has reviewed iAntiVirus, rating the Mac virus protection software four out of five stars. It protects against Mac-based malware, keyloggers, viruses and Trojans.
MacNN has reviewed PC tools' iAntiVirus, rating the Mac virus protection software four out of five stars. It protects against Mac-based malware, keyloggers, viruses, Trojans, and other threats, while running in the background and available from a menubar. The software monitors the system and scans for prior infection. Users can also run immediate scans via drag-and-drop for individual files.
The primary con of the software is a lack of audible alarms and a too-brief visual alert. The fact that the standard version of the software is free, however, mitigates the cons nicely.
iAntiVirus is free to download, or users can purchase a $30 license that includes 24/7 support for one computer. There is a $650 option for a 50-computer volume license available as well. Mac OS X 10.5.0 or higher is required, and iAntiVirus is Snow Leopard compatible.
