Avira Free Mac Security
Keep your Mac protected with Avira Free Mac Security

The Mac isn’t a platform that is traditionally associated with security issues, but in reality it is just as prone to them as Windows and almost any other operating system. These days, the increased popularity of Macs means that the platform is just as much at risk of virus and malware infections as others, but this is something that Avira Free Mac Security aims to address. The application offers protection against a range of forms of malware and is as discreet as possible.

The idea behind Avira Free Mac Security s that it should be all but invisible to the user. It works silently in the background, only appearing and asking for input when absolutely necessary. Right from the word go, the software offers protection, checking for new updates and malware definitions as soon as installation is complete. After a scan has been performed the app will slip into the background and continue to do its job.

Avira Free Mac Security constantly monitors your system for potential security problems, including real-time protection being switched off. By default, should one or more problems be detected, they can be fixed in one fell swoop with a single click, but you do still have the option of dealing with them all individually if you prefer. Heuristic detection means that even without the very latest definitions install, suspicious activity should be detected.

Avira is a trusted name in the security world and this Mac release shows the usual signs of quality and as an added bonus it is available completely free of charge. The absence of a price tag applies not only to home users, but also businesses meaning that this could be a great security tool for any small company on a budget.

What's new in v2.0?

- Redesign of the user interface to match the new corporate design 
- Minor GUI improvements
- Scan performance improvements
- Scheduled Update: unnecessary windows removed
- Scheduled Scan: unncecessary windows removed, unless user interaction is required
- Additional license text added to the product help

Verdict:

 Such a great security tool, it’s amazing to find that it is free of charge. A great tool for travellers and the careless alike.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
