Security Solution launched for Mac users

eScan has launched its latest offering for Mac users, eScan Anti-Virus Security for Mac. Macs are believed to be less vulnerable to cyber attacks. However, similar to Windows OS, the recent developments show that with its growing usage, cyber criminals are focusing equally on finding vulnerabilities in Mac OS and its applications. Hence, in order to provide secured computing environment for Mac users, eScan has launched its Mac Edition.


Govind Rammurthy, MD & CEO, eScan, said, “Macs are as vulnerable to cyber threats as any other operating systems. Generally, IT users have an impression that Macs are less available to hackers due to their security technology. However, the OS has been facing a number of vulnerabilities lately and new vulnerabilities are disclosed regularly. Earlier, with Mac OS having only about 10% of the market share, hackers generally did not intend to develop viruses that would only influence a smaller portion of the IT users. Over time, as the Mac user base is increasing, there is no doubt that it will become a tantalizing target. Hence, we now have eScan Anti-Virus Security for Mac that ensures that Mac users are safe from the evolving cyber threats.”
