ESET Security Review
eset security review
For the money ESET’s suite of products is one of the best. Its malware detection rate comes close to perfection, and the suite packs a nice collection of extra features with a tiny footprint. The premium version includes parental controls, a secure browser and a password manager, while the Android version comes with an anti-theft feature that can help you locate your missing phone. The features that protect networks, including a firewall and the option to scan home devices for vulnerabilities, are excellent.
One of the most notable is SysInspector. It’s a great tool that takes a picture of your system and highlights running processes as well as crucial Registry entries, and other details. It’s a bit daunting for newbies but if you’re accustomed to more advanced task managers such as those in the Sysinternals process explorer, you’ll feel right at in the comfort of your own home.
Another great feature is the possibility of scheduling scans on-demand. This is a great alternative to real-time security, and it’s fast and simple to set up. It’s just a shame ESET does not include this in its list of other scheduling tasks, and its UI makes it harder to find than some of its competitors.
The password manager is easy to use and has numerous features. It’s a powerful form filler that works well for online banking. The password manager is available only in the premium version that requires an ESET account to use, performs as well as a number of standalone solutions.
