Fehraltorf, Switzerland based B-Eng has announced the release of AntiVirus 1.2, an important update to their virus and adware scanner developed exclusively for Mac OS X. One of the most sophisticated and easy-to-use antivirus tools available, quick, reliable and safe AntiVirus version 1.2 adds a new port scanner, as well as a new vulnerability scanner.
A key feature of AntiVirus is that the app doesn’t force you to update virus definitions manually. The virus and malware list is updated automatically, and once per hour if necessary. Unlike alternative virus scanners within its genre, AntiVirus doesn’t eat CPU power and fill up RAM. Its sophisticated algorithm kicks in only when needed. AntiVirus checks loopholes that many other virus scanner completely ignore. We are convinced that AntiVirus finds threats where other scanners stay silent or even want to make you believe that your computer is safe.
Main Features of AntiVirus – Virus & Adware Scanner:
* Single purchase, no monthly fees
* EICAR test passed
* Drag & drop scanner
* Auto directory watcher
* Detection of compressed malware and viruses
* Port Scanner
* Adware scanner
AntiVirus has successfully passed the EICAR test. Viruses, and especially adware, has penetrated an increasing number of Macs that are in daily use and have to be considered a serious threat to many computers running macOS. Based on their in-house analysis, B-Eng decided to protect their hardware and software and built a virus and adware scanner for their own use. After these initial tests, they decided it is ready to be sold. According to B-Eng there will be no monthly fees, and the virus definitions will be updated several times every day:
“We noticed some strange issues on certain Macs that usually should not happen, and found not only adware but also attacking viruses on certain Macs. While it was true once that Macs are not really targeted by adware and viruses, the increasing use of Mac changed that. Mac computers are by now attacked by viruses a like any other computer – which is twice as bad since there are absolutely no reliable virus scanner available for Mac.” explains Christian Schaffner, General Manager of B-Eng. “Thanks to our technical background we were able to create a virus scanner that is not adopted from a previously existing one, but built from scratch – taking into account all the specific things that MacOS has to offer. Therefore we are proud to say that AntiVirus by B-Eng is probably the most efficient virus and adware scanner that is currently available in the App Store, but also the fastest one.”
