It’s not the season to be merry yet, but we’re getting there. It’s our pleasure to announce a project that we’ve been working on for the past few months: BitDefender Antivirus 2009 for Mac, a new concept product designed to provide antivirus protection for your Macs. The beta1 kit is ready for download at the BitDefender Beta Center and it includes the following main features: • On-demand Scanner • Real-time Antivirus Protection • Automatic Malware Signatures and Engine Updates • Automatic product Updates BitDefender Antivirus 2009 for Mac deals with several types of known or „in-the-wild” malware types: viruses, trojans, spyware, backdoors, rootkits (on Windows). As new threats appear, the list will be supplemented in the following signature updates. The product filters and cleans up Internet, e-mail, instant messaging downloads and not only. Its dual protection capability ensures that Mac machines with both Mac OS X and Win installed are free from threat. So, if you own a Mac, give this fresh beta a try and send us your feedback (bugs included). We would also welcome any ideas on the usability of the product’s user interface.
