    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.
