Best Antivirus for macOS Sierra
Antivirus test company AV-TEST conducted a new research that involves a total of 13 solutions for home and business users running Apple’s macOS, a platform that’s often considered to be more secure that Windows.
And while opinions in this regard are still mixed, macOS antivirus products are becoming more popular, obviously as a result of more forms of malware aimed at Apple’s desktop platform.
AV-TEST’s new study reveals that 6 of the 9 security solutions for home users detected 100 percent of the macOS malware, including Avast Security, Bitdefender Antivirus for Mac, Kaspersky Lab Internet Security for Mac, Sophos Home, Symantec Norton Security, and Trend Micro Antivirus.
Intego Mac Internet Security X9 got pretty close with a 99.4% score, while F-Secure’s detection rate dropped to 93.8%. Comodo Antivirus got the lowest score in the research – 38.1%.
