Microsoft has several malware detection products such as Windows Defender and Windows Software Removal Tool.
Does Apple any comparable products that it produces for its platforms?

Thanks.

No, as far as I know, Apple does not produce anti-virus products.

But there are several AV vendors that offer products for many platforms, also OSX.
