Dr.Web 12.0.0 for macOS released

July 17, 2020

Russian anti-virus company Doctor Web has unveiled Dr.Web 12.0.0 for macOS. The latest version introduces a number of new features and upgrades, which include a redesigned UI and the firewall component.

Dr.Web anti-virus 12 provides protection for Apple computers.

In Dr.Web 12.0.0 for macOS, the application's main window is replaced with a unified agent interface that seamlessly integrates with the operating system and extends its functionality.

The firewall is another important innovation in Dr.Web 12.0.0. This component facilitates control over data exchanged between a Mac and the network.

Other improvements

  • Proxy-server settings can now be specified for virus database updates.
  • Express scans now start faster.

Thanks to thorough performance optimisation, the application boasts even lower CPU and memory usage. Furthermore, the new version has eliminated an issue that prevented certain Apple applications from working properly when the option to scan TLS traffic was enabled.

To update Dr.Web for macOS to version 12.0.0, you need to download the new distribution.
