IT Services is now offering a new antivirus and online threat protection software: Titanium Internet Security for Mac, available for all Mac operating systems from OS X 10.5.8 and up. This includes the latest version of Mac OS X 10.8.
In addition to basic features such as protection from viruses, spyware, and malware, it can protect you from phishing scams, block / warn you about unsafe websites or links, and has customizable parental controls so you can restrict children’s Internet access. All full-time McGill faculty, staff and students are eligible to download it for free from the link below.
If you had previously installed the McGill-provided version of Smart Surfing for Mac that was valid for one year from the time it was activated, you can continue to use it until it expires, if you so choose. However, we do recommend that you uninstall it and install Titanium Internet Security for Mac prior to the expiry date so that you stay protected from viruses and malware.
