NEW YORK, April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Piriform Inc., the leading provider of computer optimization software and the developers of the award-winning CCleaner software, announces that its widely popular CCleaner product is now available in a Mac-based version. Accessible as a free download at Piriform.com and the Mac App store, the new CCleaner Mac edition has already garnered more than 500,000 downloads.
“We’re thrilled with the success of CCleaner and are proud to offer its efficiencies to users in the Apple ecosystem,” said Guy Saner, Piriform’s CEO. ”The Mac community has been clamoring for tools and functions that will keep their operating systems running at peak performance. CCleaner offers a free, simple and effective way to achieve that. We foresee success among Mac’s loyal universe of consumers that parallels what we’ve seen for the rest of our product line.”
CCleaner removes unnecessary files, including unused and temporary files. It also clears the user’s Internet and download history, eliminating digital “traces” left on the user’s hard drive that can compromise privacy. The results are a faster, cleaner and more secure computer, with maximized hard disk space.
Piriform also offers a suite of CCleaner tools for business, including the more advanced CCleaner Network Professional, available through resellers and distributors. CCleaner’s entrance into the Mac environment is yet another expansion on the part of Piriform, extending its reach across the computing community’s two most prevalent operating platforms.
