There isn't a single application that can do all that, you need to install 3 or 4 different products if you want total protection from all the various kinds of malware that you've listed.

I've had an iMac for years and also have a 13" Macbook pro, and never had a problem with either one. The only program I use on the laptop is a program called ccleaner slim for Mac. The Mac OSX and Safari browser are not prone to infections like windows.Not impossible, but not likely. You can always Google programs for Mac if you wish. Good Luck.

Whilst I agree that Mac OS are generally freeof the pests that affect windows... Bitdefender and Avast both occasionally catch items when monitoring a Mac system. These are invariably aimed at windos rather than Nac, but one can never be totally sure they might not be passed on via email etc..

Ccleaner is useful and occasionally it does find "nuisances" on my Mac systems.

In the other similar post by kumquats I pinted to the two utilities that work eell together; even though Avast does slow boot process a little, bitdefender (free version)is not running 24x7 - you have to manually update and run it. The paid version is 24x7 and does it all autamatocally.

Avast also can block outbound emails (at leat sent via MS Office/Outlook.
