Remember Apple’s infamous “Get a Mac” campaign? If not, you’re not alone. Things have changed a lot since Apple could use malware to capitalize on the higher vulnerability of regular PCs. Today, Mac antivirus software is not only abundant, it’s necessary!
The age-old myth that Macs are immune to malware no longer holds water for two main reasons:
1) With the rising popularity of the iPhone (iOS), the Apple ecosystem has increased tremendously, prompting cybercriminals to also set their sights on Mac users.
2) Platform-agnostic schemes such as, fraud, spam, and phishing scams are targeting every type of device, from computers, to tablets and smartphones.
