I'll be taking a look at this AM (anti-malware) application. But I have to point out that: 1) It's using inflated version numbers. It was first released for PC on September 01, 2014. And now it's on Mac at version 3.x? Sounds like Google Chrome numbering. (o_O) 2) The marketing lingo says stuff like "Has received top marks from PC Mag" and "Voted as "Best Protection" 3 years in a row and Best Security 2014, PC Mag - Voted "Best Performance" by AV-TEST.". And this lingo was for version 1.0 for Windows. WHAT?! - - It turns out that 'PC Mag' has NEVER EVER reviewed Chili Antivirus. PC Magazine's 2015 antivirus review doesn't even mention Chili Antivirus. Therefore, from my research I have to say 'SHENANIGANS!', to put it mildly. Everything I've researched tells me that these guys are plain old blatant LIARS. We know what that portents. :-P But I'll take a look at this application and post an actual review later. Meanwhile, I suggest: STAY AWAY!

Detailed malware detection test results are regularly posted here for nearly 2 dozen products, free and paid: http://securityspread.com/detection-rate-results/ These are very detailed, showing EXACTLY by name for each malware/virus if it is detected or not, for each product, then products are ranked 95%, 85%, 75% etc based on detection rates. Historical results are maintained so you can compare over time, and you do see product results change with each test (done every month to every 3 months depending on whether there are any new reported malware in the field, and a sample can be obtained for testing). Presumably results for Chili AV would be comparable to Bitdefender. I've done a bit of research on the /securityspread.com/ site and tester, to make sure it was not one of those 'sponsored' sites by a vendor that are made to appear as objective, neutral reviews. The fact that the product rankings change constantly AND that the results are very specific and listed in detail, further support that this site and the tester are very objective. In fact this is exactly the kind of site and test results, that vendors DON'T want you to see, even the ones that do well on the test (because no product is 100%). I am posting this to support the Mac Community. My aim is not to support or dissuade anyone about a particular product, you pick / use or don't use whatever product you want, and live with the consequences. I highly recommend you don't just look at the current results, but look at the past ones as well. You WILL see trends, with some products consistently doing well and others not so much, and some moving up and down. Remember, an A/V product rests on two main things, the scanning engine AND the malware database. A great engine can be crippled if the database is not updated in a timely manner. Conversely, a vendor that does maintain a current database might still not be effective if the program itself is buggy. This site only ONLY addresses virus detection results, it does not in general make any conclusions or post results regarding performance, installation, support, UI, etc.

In the past, like October 2014 (!) 'Chili Security' was selling their Windows 'Internet Security' package for $178.20. That is apparently where the wrong price came from. This gouging price (compared to similar Internet security packages) was dumped and replaced with the current monthly subscription scheme. In the case of the 'Internet Security' package, it is now $6.95 per month ($83.40 per year).

Chili Security = Bitdefender, hence the allegation

Thanks 720p. That explains the situation. The number of this version matches a logical number for Bitdefender. It also explains the marketing lingo as being specific to Bitdefender. Really poor initial presentation to potential customers. But at least we know this is actually Bitdefender and can judge it accordingly.
