The performance is poor, the user interface is sluggish and has many bugs, and the application doesn’t meat the expectations of an OS X user.
 
I will definitely buy this product if the performance gets up to the level it is on Windows,  and the user interface gets Macified.
Using EAV is mandatory for all Windows machines where I work. I wonder if this policy will be extended to Linux and Macs too. :) Best of luck with the finalisation of EAV4 for Unix!

When it isn’t too early, we in research are to smart to talk about it :) I’m sure the details will be announced when the product releases.

Many (almost all) users of MACs argue that there are no viruses for this platform and no need for an AV. What do you reply to these arguments? Which viruses does this beta version detect?
Thank you
