Windows malware detection on F-Secure Client Security for Mac

mentioned that F-Secure Safe does not have detection for Windows Malware. I assume it does not
have the virus defs database for Windows.

 

I tried but failed to find docs that talk about this for F-Secure Client Security for Mac.

 

Can F-Secure Client Security for Mac detect Windows Malware?

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

> Can F-Secure Client Security for Mac detect Windows Malware?

 

That would likely mean the Aquarius main scan engine, which is a LARGE resource burden (i.e. many hundreds of megabytes of RAM). Apple users would then probably complain of those slow-downs to which Windows users have long resigned to?
