Yes, Macs Get Viruses (and We Can Help)

The End of an Old Mac

Clients are commonly under the misconception that Macs don’t get viruses, or at least not PC viruses.  That was true back in the days of the “I’m a Mac” ad. In 2018, that simply isn’t true.

In 2016, Mac malware (the general category for things like viruses, trojans etc.) grew by almost 75% according to this article.  I suspect 2017 report will show even more growth in that area.  One unique way Macs can get infected is through an iOS app.  This article explains one unique attack vector:  a free app.  It’s getting so dangerous, that companies will write custom Mac malware for you.

We recommend Malwarebytes for the Mac to prevent these problems.  As a reseller, we get a special discount on the first year.  Give us a call, send us a text, or drop us an email.  Mention this ad and we can sell you the software at our discount rate and install it for free.
