ESET Smart Security is an antivirus solution that has been designed to protect your computer in the best way possible. It will scan and detect viruses, spyware, and other malwares, so you don’t have to deal with any of that on your own. It also goes a step further when you download files or visit websites with potentially dangerous content. The program will give you a warning message before it lets you do anything potentially harmful. That way, if there’s something wrong with that file or website, you can simply not go any further without getting in trouble. Take a look at each feature below.
The antivirus engine protects you against viruses, trojans, worms and other malware. It also prevents phishing sites from tricking you into entering your credentials or downloading malicious software.
The anti-phishing module protects users from phishing sites that try to steal personal data like banking information and passwords. The script-based attack protection stops scripts from running on a website when they’re not supposed to be active (like in an iframe).
Advanced Memory Scanner: This feature protects against obfuscated threats by scanning for them when they’re not actively running on your computer or phone.
Incredibly Easy to Use
The first thing that you’ll notice about the main window is how easy it is to navigate. The left column has your device list, which you can sort by name, type and status. The middle section shows what’s currently happening on each device. And on the right side, you have four buttons for adding new devices, editing existing ones, checking for updates and shutting down/restarting your PC (or servers).
It doesn’t take long for a novice user to get comfortable with ESET Smart Security’s interface either: installation only takes a few seconds and there are no annoying popups asking if you want to disable antivirus protection during setup or initiate an update scan every time you boot up your PC or server—which was an issue we had with some older versions of ESET NOD32 Antivirus
One of the most important aspects of a security product is its performance. ESET Smart Security, which consistently ranks as one of the best antivirus products available, uses very little of your computer’s resources and does not cause a slowdown in performance or slow down when running. The install size is also small and fast scans are another feature that makes ESET Smart Security stand out from competition.
ESET Smart Security is available for Windows, macOS, and Android. The Windows and macOS versions of ESET Smart Security are identical. The Android version of ESET Smart Security is a mobile antivirus—it does not include the additional features that you would get if you installed ESET Smart Security on your computer.
Excellent Support Documentation
If you’re not sure how to do something, the Eset Smart Security Help Center is a great place to look. It’s packed with helpful articles and videos that can get you up and running in no time. The site also has a robust set of FAQs, which cover topics like “how do I turn off Auto-Protect?” and “can I use this antivirus software on multiple devices?”.
If all else fails, there’s always the option of emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. They’ll get back to you within 24 hours during the week (excluding holidays).
There’s a lot of antivirus programs out there, so it can be tricky to choose which one is right for you. But if you want a solid option that gives you peace of mind when you go online, ESET Smart Security is an antivirus program worth looking at. It brings together a number of useful features and while it’s not the cheapest package out there, it competes well with the rest of the market and provides a powerful defense against malware and viruses.
