We used to have a Mac solution back in the days of sneakernets. The updates were distributed via floppies. This new Mac Protection (with antivirus) is part of our Technology Preview program and you can download it from our Beta Programs page. An Intel processor based Mac with OS X version 10.5 (Leopard) is a requirement.
