Running a security scan on a iMac x

Specs: imac, i158GB
Does iMac x run security scans or any type scans in the background? Or do you have to initiate them? How?

There is only a firewall which protects against online attacks and stops anyone hacking in to your iMac.

But that does not stop viruses & other types of malware. For protection against viruses & other types of malware you have to install antivirus and antimalware software yourself.

Remember, too, that one product cannot protect you from everything, so you need to install 2 or maybe more different products - - one to stop viruses & one to stop trojans (because a trojan is technically not a virus).
