We have several users using their personal MAC Laptops for work purposes.

I have never had a problem yet with viruses on a a MAC; but, that does not mean it will never happen.  My question is what are some good policies and procedures on how to protect MAC laptops and the company network from Viruses and Spyware (from infecting MAC OSX devices).

Regarding Windows devices I do the following:

- We have commercial AV program installed to help prevent and clean any malware.
- We have a secondary AV program to double-check if the initial virus scan program (Hitman Pro.)

I think that having a secondary anti-virus program, such as Hitman Pro would be the most cost effective solution.  I am getting this concern from a previous question, https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29067896/How-to-scan-an-Apple-Device-for-Viruses-HOAX-SPAM-alert.html
