The vast majority of apps offering antivirus protection run on an open-source engine called Clam AV. It offers a convenient module that app developers can plug into their products for free and get passable antivirus protection.
Unfortunately, you often get what you pay for, which in this case is a subpar detection rate for malware and adware. That’s why a staff-maintained antivirus solution is a better idea.
A great example is Combo Cleaner from RCS LT. It’s a suite of computer-maintenance tools with an especially powerful antivirus platform built into it. Its custom scan engine detects viruses, adware and malware, with definitions backed up by a dedicated research team that forwards updates to users on an hourly basis.
Is Mac antivirus really necessary?
For Mac users, antivirus software might seem like an afterthought — aren’t Macs supposed to be all but immune from viruses?
Well, not exactly. In fact, Macs subject to their own set of viruses — and can even serve as carriers for Windows-based viruses. That’s why Combo Cleaner’s antivirus library includes a full database of PC-oriented viruses, preventing your Mac from becoming a carrier.
Getting strong virus protection shouldn’t require a computer science degree. With Combo Cleaner, it’s part of a full-fledged Mac utilities suite. The Mac antivirus capabilities get folded into a clean dashboard that includes a bunch of other essential drive-maintenance functions — disk cleaner, privacy scanner, duplicate file locator, app uninstaller and more.
Combo Cleaner makes scanning for nefarious code on your computer as easy as initiating a cursory or in-depth scan, or dragging and dropping a file into the app.
