Yes Mark, You can used it for the mac's too. If you like you can divide the checks for MAC and for Windows machines in separate IP Profiles, where one can be checking if the system has Windows OS, and an AV solution running (and/or up to date), and another HIP Profile that will check if the system is MAC OS and there is and an AV solution running (and/or up to date). For that reason when creating the HIP object, in the GENERAL tab, mark the Host info and select the OS as needed (mac or win), and if needed limit the versions that are in usage in your environment (maybe you are only using windows 7 Professional and windows 8.1 for the Microsoft OS and Mac OS X 10.8 from Apple). After that make the needed combination of HIP objects into HIP Profiles (using logical operators) and attache the profile to to a security rule. Dont forget to add block rule for the users that dont have the HIP profile, or at least limit them to just be able to go to certain sites (like the update server for the AV solution in use).
