Does Small Office Protection work on macOS?
Mac devices are commonly known to be immune to cyberthreats, but this is not true. Malicious links and vulnerable websites can still harm your device and steal data from you. If your company uses Mac computers, suggest using Small Office Protection for Mac. With it, you will receive alerts on Wi-Fi network weaknesses and real-time updates when a virus or spyware is blocked.
A single license can be used on up to 10 devices, which is a significant number for small-medium enterprises (SMEs) with less than 50 employees. Most enterprise cybersecurity package tends to be complex, and it may necessitate the services of a professional IT team for operation. Small Office Protection requires only one easy installation without any experience or maintenance.
The program's ‘set it and forget it’ ideology makes it easier to secure the company on a budget. There is no need to buy any new equipment. Small Office Protection integrates with the company's current hardware. This is particularly useful for companies that use online banking. You can now conduct transactions securely from your Mac computer or any device.
Is it necessary to uninstall my previous antivirus?
Small Office Protection includes a number of features to shield you against malicious online threats. The features that counter intentional attacks such as phishing, malware, and viruses are ransomware shield, next-generation anti-virus, email shield, real-site, scheduled scans, real-time updates, and phishing net. In an organization where you receive a lot of cold emails, the email shield will prove quite useful.
The functionality scans incoming and outgoing emails for malware to ensure they're safe. It operates in coordination with the scheduled scans, which check for malware on your computer while you’re away. The web shield, Wi-Fi inspector, and advanced firewall features help secure your company's data even while everyone is in a remote work setup.
If you or an employee works outside and connects to a public wireless network, the web shield and Wi-Fi inspector search websites and networks to ensure the connection is safe from hackers. Compared to the Windows version of Small Office Protection Pro, this version does not offer Passive mode. So, you will not be able to run a dedicated antivirus program alongside this.
