In the past there was a belief that Macs were safer than PCs because "they don't get viruses." That belief came from the fact that malicious software is only built for platforms that people use - particularly gullible people. When Apple was only able to give their computers away to schools, there was no money to be had in writing malicious code for Macs.
Today, an increasingly gullible population is switching from PC to Mac, partially because of a misconception that the platform is easier to use and partially because of the security belief. Because of this, more and more malicious code is being written to take advantage of those unprotected computers.
If you have made the switch to Mac without knowing the actual threats to the platform, then you definitely need MacKeeper. It helps keep those Macs safe from the onslaught of software designed to compromise those machines.
In addition, the software adds capabilities for security and optimization. The drive can be wiped, the computer can be located, etc. It also allows you to control the computer's boot and run time, by allowing you to turn off startup applications. Get it now for as low as $9.99 per month.
