About us

ClamXAV is written and sold by Canimaan Software Ltd, an independent company based in Edinburgh, Scotland.


The founder of Canimaan Software, Mark is a leading software engineer with a BSc Honours degree in Computer Science and French from the University of St Andrews. He started writing software for Macs in the late 1990s and, frustrated by existing anti-virus software options for Macs, began developing ClamXAV in 2004.


Hailing originally from Galway in Ireland, Niamh graduated from the University of Ulster with a BSc Honours degree in Biomedical Sciences. She now lives in Edinburgh and is a director of Canimaan Software, heading up our support and sales divisions. A compulsive list maker, she loves getting things done.


Matt is our Malware Researcher and has a background in Cyber Security and Digital Forensics. He has a passion for macOS, discovering vulnerabilities and investigating interactions between applications and operating systems. Occasionally he does some more light-hearted things such as riding his bike and collecting music.


As a Web Developer, Robert enjoys problem solving and finding solutions which enhance user experience. The challenges and learning opportunities that programming brings are what initially attracted him to this line of work. When away from a computer screen, Robert enjoys playing guitar, running and playing tennis.


Kynan is a developer who has taken a very round about path to macOS development, ranging from studying Psychology, teaching, and working as an analyst, before getting his teeth into mobile development. As a developer, he loves the chances for constant learning and problem-solving, as well as being able to build something usable. When away from the development world, Kynan is an avid rower and climber.


Carraig provides stress relief at critical moments and interrupts long bouts of intense programming with timely reminders to get up and get out into the fresh air.
