ESET Crowned “Best Antivirus Product of 2007” by AV-Comparatives
ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, today announced that its award-winning ESET NOD32 Antivirus was named “Best Antivirus Product of 2007” by AV-Comparatives, an independent research outlet that tests antivirus software. (December 20, 2007)
ESET Launches Final versions of ESET Smart Security and ESET Antivirus Business Editions
ESET Launches Final versions of ESET Smart Security and ESET Antivirus
SAN DIEGO – October 29, 2007 – ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, today announced the introduction of ESET Smart Security, a new, integrated security solution for consumers and small-to-medium-sized businesses. It includes antivirus, antispyware, antispam and firewall features built on ESET’s award-winning advanced heuristic ThreatSense® detection system and the ESET NOD32 scanning engine. ESET Smart Security combines speed, accuracy and minimal computer system impact to deliver a significant improvement over traditional solutions in the marketplace today. It provides the industry’s highest level of accuracy and fewest false-positives through ESET NOD32 Antivirus . With significantly lower performance overhead compared to the competition, ESET Smart Security uses only 40MB of disk space and scans systems up to 30-times faster than other products.

 “Threats no longer appear in the form of pure viruses or spam or phishing. They now come as ‘blended’ threats which require an integration and intelligence among individual security features. Smart computer users are looking for the best level of integrated protection with the minimal amount of inconvenience,” said Phil Hochmuth, senior analyst at the Yankee Group. “This drives users to look for malware solutions that provide great protection, are easy to install, don’t slow down their computers and work completely behind the scenes.”

Unlike security suites which combine standalone products, ESET Smart Security tightly integrates the antispyware, antispam and firewall features with the new version of ESET’s flagship ESET NOD32 Antivirus scanning engine. This tight integration allows each module to share information with the other to evaluate and classify every threat appropriately.
ESET’s ThreatSense technology provides the industry’s highest level of accuracy. It is the only antivirus technology that has not missed an in-the-wild-virus in Virus Bulletin VB 100 testing over the past nine years, while producing only one false-positive during that time. It has also received more Advanced+ awards from for proactive protection than any other product.

 “Our research indicates that consumers and businesses are looking for maximum protection, low system requirements, accurate results and fast scanning speeds—in that order. They are tired of solutions that slow down their computers and interfere with other applications,” said Anton Zajac, CEO of ESET, LLC. “ESET set out to build a solution that addressed these concerns while offering the best level of protection available. With ESET Smart Security, we’ve surpassed our goal and savvy computer users will be amazed by its ease of use, intelligent lightweight design and near-zero impact on system performance.”

 Unique to ESET Smart Security and ESET NOD32 Antivirus V4.2:

  • Hands-on service – All ESET customers receive the same level of excellent technical support service, whether an individual computer user or an SMB.
  • Ease of installation – ESET Smart Security and ESET NOD32 Antivirus V3.0 scanning engines are quick and easy to install, no matter what solution is currently running.
  • Advanced threat protection network – ESET solutions are backed by ThreatSense.Net, a global early warning system built into the products. ThreatSense.Net extends the power of ThreatSense’s powerful analytics by automatically submitting samples of and information about new malware to ESET researchers for analysis, thus helping to close the window of vulnerability opened by new threats.

ESET’s new solutions are ideal for the small-to-medium size business environment. By incorporating ESET’s Remote Administrator, both ESET Smart Security and the new version of ESET NOD32 Antivirus can be deployed and managed remotely from a central location.

ESET NOD32 Receives Microsoft Windows Vista Antivirus Certification

ICSA Labs Certifies NOD32 in Inaugural Program

SAN DIEGO – February 19, 2007 – ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, today announced that ESET NOD32 Antivirus received antivirus certification from ICSA Labs for NOD32 v2.7 on the Microsoft Windows Vista platform (64-bit).  This is the industry’s first anti-virus certification testing program for desktop/server anti-virus products designed for the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system.

To achieve ICSA Labs Anti-Virus Certification, products must meet all criteria in the desktop/server anti-virus detection module and, if selected, the anti-virus cleaning module. The desktop/server detection module is targeted at anti-virus products designed to protect individual desktops, laptops, and/or servers of residential users and organizations from self-replicating malicious code infection. Products must demonstrate that they have the capability to detect viruses on-demand, detect and prevent the replication of viruses on-access, report no false positives and log the results of virus detection attempts.  The anti-virus cleaning criteria ensure that products remove in-the-wild viruses from infected files and sectors and are able to remove all viruses without adversely affecting the data or functionality that existed before becoming infected. 

ESET is pleased to have NOD32 as one of the first products certified under the inaugural Windows Vista Anti-Virus Certification Program,” said Rick Moy, vice president of marketing, ESET, LLC. “NOD32 is again at the forefront, protecting users on the industry’s latest operating system from a wide range of malware.”

High-performance, low-impact ESET NOD32 Antivirus software offers consumers and businesses comprehensive protection in a product designed to automatically update behind-the-scenes without impacting other applications, so users always have the most current protection available. ESET NOD32 Antivirus version 2.7 utilizes ThreatSense® technology, a sophisticated detection system based on advanced heuristics, to proactively identify previously unknown viruses, Trojans, spyware, rootkits and phishing attacks in real time. ThreatSense is built into NOD32’s single scanning engine to provide comprehensive protection so users do not need to rely on additional point solutions for spyware and adware protection.
