Is there a Macintosh version of McAfee available for download from Shaw?
While McAfee does make a Mac version, it was not included in the Shaw agreement. With the previous provider (F-Secure) we did offer a Mac version, but the uptake was extremely low (less than 1% of all Mac using Shaw Internet customers). At this time there is no information if we are to to offer a Mac version in the future.
Honestly as a Mac user for the past 9+ years, I have never seen a need for security on Mac OS. Just keeping up with the security updates (OS X and installed software) and being safe with where you download applications is plenty enough. Thankfully with the Mac user base being so small (still under 10%) the virus makers don't attack OS X very often.
There are options out there from Sophos and Avast if still looking for a Free Antivirus solution on Mac.
Hi there rdpoon
Currently we do not offer Shaw Secure for Mac OS. The general idea is that Mac OS is a lot less likely to have a virus compared to Windows, many Antivirus software developers do not put resources into making a Mac OS version for that reason. There are certainly some alternatives though that are free for download on the Internet. Maybe some of our other Community members can contribute here with suggestions.
