McAfee has extended its Internet Security and Family Protection offerings to the Mac OS X platform, targeting end users with Mac OS 10.5 or later.
Internet Security will offer basic malware detection and firewall protection, along with the McAfee Site Adviser web security service and the Secure Search tools.
The Family Protection suite, meanwhile, allows parents to monitor children's online activity, and set up web site blocks and application installation locks.
"McAfee Internet Security helps Apple users confidently live their digital lives," said Todd Gebhart, executive vice president and general manager for consumer, mobile and small business at McAfee.
"It will protect Mac users from growing threats when searching the internet every day, and McAfee Family Protection allows parents to keep a watchful eye over their kids' activities."
The products target what McAfee sees as a growing market for Mac security. The platform faces far fewer malware threats than Windows-based systems, but attacks targeting OS X have become more common in recent years, as have platform neutral attacks such as phishing.
