ESET Security Review

ESET is a solid anti-malware engine, a useful firewall setting A password manager with forms filling and protection for browsers and excellent security tools for networks. Its parental control, secure browser, and anti-theft tools are adequate, but nothing exceptional. It doesn’t include a VPN or microphone protection, however it does allow remote screen capture or camera access to see what a criminal has been doing on your mobile or laptop.

The program is designed with an intuitive interface that beginners can easily grasp and use, but it also provides extensive information and features for experienced users. The company also provides outstanding support, which is available via their website or directly from the client via the “support” tab located right at the bottom of the app.

We really liked the fact that ESET Internet Security shows you how it’s protecting your PC by providing a status bar at the top of the window and also provides comprehensive security information. The software will notify you on your desktop, in the vicinity of the system tray, whenever something happens on your computer.

The antiphishing tools of the antivirus were extremely alert and blocked a range of websites that I trusted but weren’t on PhishTank. Also that when we plug an USB storage device into our laptop the program automatically data repository software in online deals scans it, which was somewhat annoying since most other antivirus programs ask you for permission to do so.
