There are no viruses or spyware for Macs. Hence you don't need any antivirus software.

There's no need for an anti-virus or spyware solution as there currently are no viruses and only a couple of trojans out there that are easily avoided by simply being vigilant when prompted for your password.
If you'd like a firewall that gives you a more granular degree of control over outbound traffic, check into Little Snitch.Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
