ESET Launches Beta Program for ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 for Mac OS X

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, has announced that ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 for Mac OS X is now available for public beta testing.

ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 for Mac OS X utilizes the same trusted ThreatSense® technology that powers ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 for Windows. Proactive heuristic technology detects and stops new malware and variants without leaving your Mac vulnerable for hours and days as signature updates are released.

The growing popularity of Mac computers has made the Mac OS X platform a prime target for malware writers. Not only are these computers susceptible to Mac OS X-specific malware, they can also carry Windows or Linux malware through file sharing and email attachments. ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 for Mac OS X is a fast and effective solution to both problems.

Key features include:

  • Detects and cleans Mac infections plus files carrying Windows and Linux malware
  • Compact updates keep Macs protected without slowdown
  • Removable media scanning allows safe file sharing
  • Smart and customizable GUI automatically disables alerts when running full screen applications (e.g. games, videos, presentations)
  • Logs, charts and statistics provide at-a-glance summary of security status
  • Supports 32-bit Intel x86 architecture running Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard or later
  • NOTE: The beta test version is a precursor of the final product. Full functionality and documentation have not yet been implemented. Some system instability may occur; ESET recommends experienced users install NOD32 Antivirus for Mac OS X only on machines that do not perform critical tasks.
