    I suggest you download "Malware Bytes Anti-Malware for Mac".
    It's free.

    It DOES NOT run continuously in the background.
    You run it now and then to check for adware, malware, etc.
    It works. And did I mention that it's free?

    That's an option. The best defence on a Mac is yourself. Be smart with your browsing, don't open any emails that look "phishy" and keep up with updates.
