  1. Macs can and often get viruses and infected with malware whereas a suitable antivirus for your brand new Mac makes it more protective among the viruses. The malware protection software actively guards against zero-day threats and other types of malware by locking them in a secure container where they cannot infect your computer. ClamXav is a free and open-source scanner that runs only when you tell it to, so I keep it on my Mac. It has never found anything, but sometimes I just feel like checking anyway. Sophos is more like the active scanners and an antivirus which you find on Windows, running all the time, but the nice thing is you can leave it on and disable things to keep it quiet and use as little of your system resources as possible. Still, since it also has never found anything, I uninstalled it and no longer use it. You can, if you choose, install them both; they won't interfere with one another.
