McAfee VirusScan icon Security solution designed to help you further minimize your Macs’ vulnerability by detecting viruses, spyware, trojans and any other type of known malware, regardless of the targeted operating system

There are only a handful of viruses targeting Mac OS X but that does not mean you are safe from any harm. The reality is that Mac users can run into malware threats as frequently as the users of any other operating systems. As a result, you can easily and unknowingly pass malware along to other users that might not have bulletproof protection.

McAfee VirusScan is a security solution designed to help you further minimize your Macs’ vulnerability by detecting viruses, spyware, trojans and any other type of known malware, regardless of the targeted operating system.

McAfee VirusScan uses the ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) platform to help you manage all the McAfee clients (running on Mac, Windows or Linux) from your network.

Moreover, McAfee VirusScan provides different scanning modes to make sure your computer is always protected: you can manually launch scans, but McAfee VirusScan is also able to automatically scan files on access.

Additionally, make sure the “Spyware Scan” feature is always enabled: this way McAfee VirusScan can make sure your data is protected at all times. The user can schedule scans, can choose to scan network volumes and even emails.

What's more, McAfee VirusScan is using the virus definitions provided by the McAfee Labs and, via the Preferences window, you can schedule the update frequency. At the same time, you can start the update process manually from the Activity menu.

In addition, McAfee VirusScan will place the suspicious files in quarantine and keeps a log with all the  performed actions. The app allows you to run on demand scans for different files but does not include drag and drop support.

All in all, McAfee VirusScan will prove to be a very efficient security solution if you want to protect your computer against malware, adware, spyware or any other type of malicious code. Last but not least, the ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) platform is great if you want to keep safe your entire network.
