Well you really don't need one, I mean there are some spyware for mac and such but it is very rare. Most don't need any and it just slows the computer down and costs you some money. Also the mac firewall that is built into the mac osx is usually sufficient at filtering out any threats. If you are really paranoid then you could go with intego: http://www.intego.com/

I occasionally use ClamXav from a CNET affiliate here:
