Webroot® SecureAnywhere Endpoint Protection Now Supports Mac

Adding Mac Support to its Windows and Android Platform Offerings Make Multi-device Utilization More Secure and User Friendly

Tokyo٫ Japan — February 1, 2013 — Webroot, a leader in delivering Internet security as a service, today announced that the Webroot® SecureAnywhere will now support the Apple Mac product line.

The recent rapid increase in malware threats targeting Mac internet environments has dispelled the popular myth that if you're using a Mac there is no need to worry about security. For Macs, just like for PCs and mobile devices running on Windows or Android, security has now become indispensable. In order to address this situation, Webroot has commenced support for Mac through three of its security services, Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete, Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus, and Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus.

This support enables Mac users to effectively protect their systems against virus attacks from Flashback Trojan or other known and unknown threats. Webroot SecureAnywhere can be installed in seconds and complete scanning in minutes with minimal effect on performance, enabling multi-platform protection for your computers, tablets and smartphones. Since it does not conflict with other security products or applications, it can be quickly and easily deployed.

Key features in the Webroot SecureAnywhere for Mac solution include:

  • Antivirus protection
  • Antispyware protection
  • Antiphishing protection
  • Marks malicious links and search results in Apple® Safari® browser
  • Always updated against the latest threats with no reboots
  • Real-time Threat Shield
  • Scans in two minutes or less
  • Light system resources and no interruptions
  • Protects your iPhone and iPad

"As a leading security service provider, we are committed to providing support for continuously evolving threats," remarked Kazuhiko Komabayashi, President and Representative Director, Webroot. "At Webroot, we immediately began working on support for Windows 8 when it was first introduced, and now with our support for Mac we can cover Windows, Android, Mac OS and iOS platforms. We are very pleased to be able to contribute to an environment that permits safe utilization of the Internet to a maximum number of users."
