ScanGuard helps you keep your computer safe from various types of threats. The application has a streamlined interface that has a dashboard for direct access to the most frequently used features. In this respect, you can perform a quick scan or a full scan, depending on the conditions.

Moreover, there is a toolbar on the left that lets you go straight to additional features like System Boost and Disk Cleaner. The tool is cross-platform and its interface is quite the same for all operating systems, which means that, if you have had previous experience with any other version, you will not have any difficulty using it on macOS.

In addition to basic antimalware protection, ScanGuard also provides some extra features. Like most similar tools, ScanGuard comes with firewall protection. However, it is quite basic since it does not support two-way protection. Moreover, there is the possibility of finding duplicate files. Likewise, you can use the tool to scan your browsing history. Another very convenient feature is the availability of VPN services, which has a good encryption level to protect your privacy.

In general, ScanGuard can detect possible threats and includes some useful extra features, like a built-in VPN. The product is available for various operating systems, and you can purchase an account that will work for all your devices. Three licenses are available: Essential, Pro and Ultimate.
