Apple Products and Virus Protection

Just wondering if I should be doing more to protect my Apple Products for viruses and malware, etc. Should I be more proactive?

We are PC based at work, so our IT support team has several virus protection and malware stuff that they manage and update regularly.
At home, I have a PC laptop, a MacBook Air, and Apple iPhone and iPad Air. On my PC at home, I use various virus protection scans, malware scans, etc, to ensure that I try and keep my PC as clean as I can.
I don't have anything on my MacBook Air (or iPhone and iPad Air). I have read over the years that Mac's rarely get viruses, they hardly get attacked, their market share is so small that hackers don't target them, etc, so I am wondering if I should leave everything as is, and do nothing, or should I be more proactive and try and protect my MacBook Air (and maybe do something to protect my iPhone and iPad Air, if this is even possible?)
Just curious. My MacBook Air was quite expensive and I would like to protect this investment.
