Protecting you from Mac malware… and more – Improved!

Because so much malware is now targeting the Mac operating system – and Macs can also be used to spread PC virus infections – Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac has been developed to do much more than just provide Mac antivirus capabilities:

  • Protects your Mac against all types of new and emerging malware threats – including computer viruses, worms, Trojans, bots, spyware and more
  • Prevents your Mac from passing on PC and Linux malware to your family’s, friends’ or colleagues’ PCs

Securing you against Internet security threats – Improved!

Whichever type of computer you use to access the Internet… it’s the same Internet – with all the same web-based threats. When it comes to sophisticated phishing attacks – that try to acquire users’ passwords, credit card details and more – Macs are just as vulnerable as other computers. To protect you, Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac:

  • Includes a URL Advisor feature that checks each website against Kaspersky’s database of phishing sites and dangerous URLs – before you even open the website
  • Scans incoming and outgoing traffic – and assesses whether websites contain any malicious code that could infect your Mac

Preventing the theft of sensitive information, including your identity – Improved!

Identity theft can be very lucrative for cybercriminals – but extremely inconvenient and costly for victims. Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac includes Kaspersky’s Virtual Keyboard technology that:

  • Prevents keyloggers or identity thieves from intercepting your personal data
  • Lets you enter your personal and financial information onto web forms – without fear

Keeping your children safe online – Improved!

The Internet hides many dangers – especially for children – so parental controls are an essential element in effective Mac security. Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac includes easy-to-use Parental Control technology that:

  • Protects children when they’re online – surfing the Web, emailing, communicating via social networking sites, downloading files… and more
  • Helps you to manage and control how and when your children use the Internet – and how long they stay connected

Preserving more of your Mac’s performance – Improved!

Keeping your data, identity and children safe shouldn’t be at the expense of your Mac’s performance. Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac has been optimised to deliver Mac security with:

  • No noticeable impact on performance – whether you’re surfing the Web or using your Mac offline
  • Quick and easy installation

Delivering rigorous Mac security that’s easy to use, with a Mac-style interface – New!

Because Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac has the ‘look and feel’ of a typical Mac app, it’s very easy to use:

  • Major features and protection status are easily accessible
  • Fully supports the latest OS X versions – and all requirements of Retina display

Key Features

Real-time protection against all types of Mac malware threats

Every day, Kaspersky Lab identifies – and provides protection against – approximately 200,000 new threats. Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac combines traditional, proactive and cloud-based anti-malware technologies to deliver proactive, real-time protection:

Antivirus protection

Kaspersky’s latest technologies provide reliable protection against a wide range of threats – including:

  • Computer viruses
  • Trojan viruses
  • Worms
  • Spyware
  • Bots… and more

Antivirus protection

Whenever you open, save or run a file on your Mac – or on any associated drives – Kaspersky technology will scan the file for the presence of malware:

  • The file scanner is activated during startup and remains in your Mac’s memory until you switch your Mac off.
  • Only new or updated files are scanned automatically – to help minimise the impact on your Mac’s performance.

Cloud-based protection

In order to deliver a faster response to new and emerging malware, Kaspersky’s cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) continually gathers information – about new malware threats – from millions of consenting users’ computers across the world. By using the power of the cloud, this information helps to ensure Kaspersky customers are protected against the very latest threats.

Regardless of whether you choose to consent to let KSN automatically collect threat information from your computer, your Mac will still benefit from KSN’s ability to deliver a rapid response to new malware.

Web protection

Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac helps to ensure you can enjoy the Web to the fullest extent – with secure online surfing, shopping, banking and more:


Kaspersky’s enhanced anti-phishing engine – and Kaspersky’s regularly updated anti-phishing database – protects you against phishing attacks.

URL Advisor

Kaspersky’s URL Advisor function uses cloud-based data about the reputation of websites – to alert you about links to suspicious and dangerous sites. Special indicator icons classify each link as:

  • Trusted
  • Suspicious, or
  • Dangerous

The Kaspersky URL Advisor works with the following web browsers:

  • Safari
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Google Chrome

Email and download security

Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac scans downloaded files, email text and attachments on http-based web pages – to alert you in real time if there’s an attempt to infect your Mac… and also block the attack.

Virtual Keyboard

Kaspersky’s Virtual Keyboard technology lets you use mouse-clicks – instead of your computer keyboard – to enter your logins, passwords, banking details and other valuable information. When you use the Virtual Keyboard, your sensitive information is protected against being intercepted by:

  • Keyloggers
  • Identity thieves

When you’re visiting a website and you place the cursor in a password-entry field / box, the Virtual Keyboard will automatically appear on your screen – ready for you to use.

Advanced Parental Control

Because you can’t always be with your children when they’re using the Internet, Kaspersky’s award-winning Parental Control technologies make it easy for you to:

  • Monitor and limit your children's Internet usage
  • Block access to inappropriate categories of websites or to individual websites
  • Prevent the sharing of private data – including phone and credit card numbers
  • Control communications on social networks – and block any unwanted contacts
  • Block specific types of download – including music, video files or applications
  • Enable the safe search option for many popular web browsers
  • Generate Parental Control reports – including which web pages have been viewed and which data has been transferred

Kaspersky’s development team has ensured that Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac is easy to use and has minimal impact on your Mac’s performance:

  • Software installation and licence activation are quick and simple – with just a few mouse clicks.

Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac 4.1 5 7 7
PROTECTION FOR MAC OS I now operate Kapersky on four computers and can only say that it stands head and shoulders over other products on the market. I would suggest that Kapersky provides the benchmark against which all other products should be evaluated against. 04 April 2014
Even Apple Products Require Protection Being a Silver Surfer and having used XP Pro with AVG security for the last 10 years could not contemplate changing to Windows 8 so went over to the dark side and purchased an iMac.Other users of the Apple products assured me that one did not need any anti virus programmes as hackers only targeted window products! I was persuaded to change to Kaspersky by a review I read in Computer Active and so far have been satisfied with the performance and after sales assistance received. 23 February 2014
Appears as good as the microsoft version Once the product is set up it appears to do the job well. One criticism is that once installed and you have updated the files it tells you the data bases are severely out of date. This is somewhat daunting. The tech team could not solve the problem. The solution, found by myself, is to reboot the system and the fault disapears. 07 February 2014
very easy to install.when using the key system.did not have to install my self automatic installed when my old protection ran out. 13 January 2014
Easy all-round protection Easy to install. One of the few reliable systems iOS 13 December 2013
Slows mac to a crawl etc I used Kaspersky for years on my windows PC's with no problem. On a mac it is a different story, it slowed my computer down but worst of all from opening Safari 7 in Mavericks OS it takes 10 to 12 seconds to open the home page and subsequent pages load slower than on my phone using 3G and I have a 30 meg cable internet connection that worked before installing Kaspersky for Mac. After uninstalling my mac is back to super speed and Safari pages load almost instantly again. Please can I have a refund????? 01 December 2013
Internet Security Product loaded well, works well in background. So far excellent working tool. 12 October 2013
