ESET Cybersecurity for Mac debuts at Apple retail stores nationwide

ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, today announced that ESET Cybersecurity for Mac is available for purchase at ESET's Online Store or through select retail outlets, including Apple and Micro Center stores nationwide. With ESET Cybersecurity for Mac, consumers receive advanced protection against Internet security threats without an impact on system performance.

Leveraging the company's award-winning NOD32 ThreatSense® technology, ESET Cybersecurity for Mac delivers advanced security protection with an intuitive Mac interface. The solution delivers real-time protection from spyware, viruses, and other security attacks — even those for Windows and Linux systems — while using a small amount of memory and CPU resources to ensure optimum performance and offer a user-friendly interface.

In addition to offering advanced protection against Internet security threats, ESET Cybersecurity for Mac includes a first-of-its-kind online education tool to help users keep their computer data and personal information safe.

For this reason, ESET has developed a security solution that combines proactive software protection with an interactive education component. By enabling Mac users to quickly and easily understand and identify Internet threats, we are helping them become their own best-defense," said Dan Clark, VP of Marketing at ESET, LLC.
