Is Antivirus for Mac Book a Must?

If we think about cyber safety, we face the question: do we need any antivirus for Mac at all? Mac has earned a reputation for an absolutely safe system. However, is it true? Indeed, the structures of the Mac differ from the Windows OSs and this way they are safer. They have a built-in so-called sandbox, and stands for that a virus entering such a structure cannot spread through the whole system as fast as it does inside Windows. Nevertheless, these devices cannot be called a safety standard. Another important thing is the number of devices using the Mac OSs. There are much fewer Macs than devices based on Windows. And as we understood from the previous paragraph Windows Oss are more vulnerable. No wonder cyber fraudsters focus on developing malicious software against Windows. Nevertheless, the number of Mac users is steadily increasing, and this cannot but attract virus developers.

Time of operations

Two basic functions every antivirus does are constant scanning and scanning on the user’s demand. The first protective function is to continuously scan the computer systems (or other device on where the protection is installed) for malware. The realization of this function should be invisible, not slowing down the operation speed of the device. The second protective function is aimed to identify threats at the user's request. Here we should pay attention to the time it takes to complete a full scan, since some antivirus programs require several hours to complete it. If there was a risk of infection, a long wait can drive any user crazy.

Addition function

Some antivirus software for Mac offer extra coverage against ransomware – a new branch of hackers’ attacks. A ransomware virus gets inside personal data boxes blocking users’ files and demanding payments for unlocking. It encodes photographs, documents, etc. and asks for payments to decode your data. Another interesting function is encoding data when using unsafe Wi-Fi connections. You might have noticed that some networks are marked as not safe, e.g. Wi-Fi provided by a restaurant. This is where you may need extra defending coverage. The list of additional functions is definitely longer, it can include parental control, various managers, etc. One should read the description and decide whether those functions are necessary. Apparently, the basis of antivirus solutions is alike in every vendor, so if there is no need of extras, why pay more?
