Las Vegas, NV & Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) January 21, 2016
SecureMac (SecureMac.com), the leader in security solutions for OS X, has introduced MacScan 3, the next generation of its flagship anti-malware software for Mac users. To help SecureMac reach a worldwide audience, the company turned to FastSpring (FastSpring.com) with DevMate integration (DevMate.com) for the ultimate e-commerce solution.
“We’re extremely proud of MacScan 3 and of the hard work our team has put into bringing it to fruition,” commented Nicholas Raba, President & CEO of SecureMac. “We’re especially excited to be on the FastSpring platform with DevMate integration, and all of these factors in combination have made the release of MacScan 3 our most exciting yet.”
“We’re excited that SecureMac has chosen FastSpring in collaboration with DevMate over other competing solutions,” commented FastSpring CEO Chris Lueck. “FastSpring will enable MacScan 3 to reach as wide an audience as possible, with DevMate adding advanced insight and enhancing the integrated platform solution.”
MacScan 3 offers an all-new and even more powerful approach to protection against security and privacy threats, including a streamlined user experience, new features, and major improvements to speed and stability. Unlike many products on the market, MacScan 3 specifically protects against the threats that target Mac users, including Trojan horses, keystroke loggers and malware.
As part of the e-commerce solution behind MacScan 3’s release, DevMate collects and aggregates data from the application to build extensive reports on application usage, revenue and sales data, customer statistics, crash reports, and more, providing customers with a quick and complete overview of how their application is performing, and helping them increase the value of their business. Meanwhile, FastSpring complements DevMate by providing a subscription management and e-commerce solution to developers for selling applications. This integration makes DevMate an essential solution for FastSpring clients like SecureMac who are looking for a complete platform to develop, manage, and distribute applications outside the Mac App Store.
“It’s a fact of modern life that each year, more and more people discover that they’ve become victims of security breaches, data theft, and online fraud,” said Raba. “In addition, there has been a sharp increase in threats specifically targeting Apple users over the past few years, as we’ve witnessed the evolution of Mac-specific malware firsthand. This is why, with MacScan 3, we wanted to rethink anti-malware and assess how Mac users are targeted so that we could protect against these new threats. We then balanced the technology with a superior user interface to provide easy usability for novice and advanced Mac users alike, culminating in our proud launch of MacScan 3.”
MacScan 3 makes it easy to protect against malware with an intuitive interface and enhanced scan capabilities. Automatic malware definition updates ensure that users are always protected against the latest threats, and scheduled scans can keep tabs on a computer’s security whether users are absent or present. When it comes to privacy threats, MacScan 3 can automatically remove blacklisted tracking cookies or clean files left behind by popular web browsers, saving disk space and erasing private data.
Key Features of MacScan 3 at a Glance:
- Protection against Malware Threats: Avoid getting hit with malware. MacScan 3 offers four unique ways to scan for malware, including a new Smart Scan feature that targets locations where malware is known to hide, saving time and computer resources.
- Internet Clutter Cleanup: Remove unnecessary files left behind by web browsers to free up valuable hard drive space and eliminate private data. Expanded cleaning options give users complete control and customization when it comes to privacy protection.
- Scheduled Scans & Automated Cleaning: MacScan 3 has a built-in scan scheduler that gives users complete control when it comes to choosing when a scan should automatically run, and allows them to additionally configure different scans to run at different times. For users seeking a quick solution to tracking cookies, MacScan 3 has an automatic cookie cleaning feature that will target and remove blacklisted tracking cookies when they’re done surfing the net, leaving the rest of their cookies in place – no user interaction required!
- Malware Definition Updates: MacScan 3 automatically checks for malware definition updates before each scan, so it’s easy to stay up-to-date with protection against the latest Mac malware threats targeting OS X.
- Expanded Tracking Cookie Cleaning Options: MacScan 3 comes loaded with detection capabilities for a huge number of known tracking cookies (over 25,000 and counting), along with a sophisticated and comprehensive database that is updated on a constant basis. If there are specific cookies that users want to keep (or remove), MacScan now makes it easy to specify a custom whitelist and blacklist for cookies on any system.
