"Great Endpoint Security App"

What do you like best?

Light on system resources yet intelligent and powerful. It doesn't interfere with any daily user - running discreetly in the background and doesn't present itself as nanny-ware. The only time it's prompted my users was when there was actually an issue.

What do you dislike?

Having to use a re-seller for larger license purchases and renewals. I'd prefer to work directly with ESET rather than a 3rd party as when I have questions about other products etc - they often have to reach out to ESET directly to get the answers that I feel the re-seller should have knowledge on. My only other issue is with ESET separating products into tiers such as SMB, Large Biz, and enterprise. We're technically a SMB but we deal with Enterprise level controls and security - the product offering should be the same.

Recommendations to others considering the product

While not as prominent as some of the larger market share programs - ESET is ahead of them when it comes to actual protection. It doesn't interfere with the daily user yet was ahead of two major ransomware virus without even needing a patch.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for laptop protection but the license also applies to other products in the same software suite from eset.

"Low resources cosuming but some holes"

What do you like best?

Is a low resource consumer for laptops and PCs, mostly run on the back and you dont note it. It is simple, easy of use and provide a good security for the laptops, PC and mobile. The application update the viruses databse almost every day and provide multiple options to get a better web, mail, antispam, antiphising, adware protection, etc.

What do you dislike?

When I try to surf on the web, the application blocks most of the pop ups, viruses, windows, etc, but every day more pop ups, viruses and marketing can pass to the PC, the ESET program didnt block the new adware, spyware and malware.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Is a nice firewall and antivirus, consuming low resources, and blocking the most of the attacks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before ESET ES, we didnt have any protection to malware, spyware and adwar. ESET provide a efficient firewall and antivirus, it is not infallible, but its ok by now.

What Antivirus solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"BEST PROTECTION WITH OPTIMUM RESOURCE NEEDED FOR RUNNING"

What do you like best?

Eset is the best ever protection for business as well as home user's. I am using Eset Antivirus at my home from past 5 years. When I first tried, I saw it was a very simple and performance optimised product.

Wonderful management for Eset endpoint security by Eset ERA appliance. Easy to setup and use.

The best part is endpoint licence can be used on any platform.

KB articles are very helpful and best.

What do you dislike?

There was nothing which I could day is bad or I disliked. But I would suggest making more improvements to settings option for some features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try Eset and you will definitely love it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I suggested ESET Endpoint Security to one of our client. After I deployed Eset I huge amount of adware and malware detected and cleaned.

The best part was that it protected from filtered websites automatically adding advance level of protection.

Also, the system with low hardware configuration is running smooth and without any lag or unnecessary device utilisation.

"Worry free computer security"

What do you like best?

I enjoy the continuous protection, automatic updates (one less thing I have to remember and saves time!), and comparably small size of this program in comparison to other options. The interface is amazingly simple and is what (in my opinion) all antivirus programs should strive to emulate. A simple graphic/logo on the main screen is combined with a status message that reaffirms you are protected and will (when applicable) give you any messages regarding status or potential issues. A second tab contains update and version information so you can see at a glance when it was done and that you have the most up to date info. A third tab contains your account and subscription information. All are easy to read with simple, clean layouts and no clutter.

What do you dislike?

In all honesty, there's really nothing to complain about. Sure there are occasional popups, but that's a given with any security software. While annoying I know they aren't going anywhere and therefore no point in getting my feathers ruffled.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Peace of mind, multi platform options available, and secure internet banking all at a very reasonable cost. Why haven't you switched already?

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When combined with our other programs it provides complete peace of mind. I don't worry that someone is tunneling into my data or watching what I'm doing as I'm doing it, even though lots of that data is delicate or could be used against people.

"Not Clunky, Easy to use, Fast"

What do you like best?

Eset will run in the background without bogging down your computer and slowing down operations

Its easy to use, sleek design makes it simple for even non-computer literate people.

I recommended this software to the company I work for and love it. They don't want constant popups and questions they have to answer or acknowledge, nor do I want to do that to 15 computers. We're a small business and I'm the IT department on top of Office Manager. I cant spend all day running to each computer to answer silly questions.

The price is reasonable and well within the industry standards for other comparable softwares.

What do you dislike?

Initial setup can be a bit of a pain. I had a few minor issues in setup but worked past them quickly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it. Its been a nice swap for us and we have great confidence in the company and its protection offered.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Security on several computers within our office. Its an easy to maintain security software for a small business. I can set it up and forget that it exists until a problem arises and we honestly havent had any issues.

"ESET allows me to focus on everything else computer related"

What do you like best?

ESET does not overtax our systems; it was advertised as having a small "footprint" and it does. We have no worries at our work site (Municipal Wastewater Facility) about virus catching, and we do not observe our systems getting bogged down.

What do you dislike?

There really is nothing I do not like with ESET. We've been customers for several years, and the product worked so well and easily for us that I purchased licenses for home as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I do not feel you can go wrong with this product. I recommend to all home users as well as business users. I use it at home for my family.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have not had any issues with virus, at all, while other departments have. Our site has been safe.

"EXTREMELY satisfied"

What do you like best?

Installed without issues, runs better than ANY other AV I have EVER used, blocks the issues before the user can attempt to use the questionable files. Low system resources used. This is the way it is supposed to be!

What do you dislike?

Really....nothing I dislike about the product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best on the market !!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I expect to get a good product when I buy it. I manage the I.T. side of a 17 site restaurant company and I rest easy knowing I have, what I truly believe to be, the BEST AV product out there. It blocks all the attempted hacking scripts sent in fictitious emails. What more can I say, it does everything it states it will do.

"Performs its functions without exhausting system resources"

What do you like best?

Eset endpoint security is a good antivirus that consumes few system resources and is updated daily. In addition to antivirus protection it has firewall protection and makes notifications if the operating system needs to be updated to mitigate any vulnerability. Performs scans to the equipment and external devices just by inserting them, such as USB memories, external hard drives, mobile phones, etc. It allows document protection and device control. And if you are in a presentation, you can pause to not exhaust system resources.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it does not check when connecting external devices and it must be done manually which can lead to a security breach while the analysis of the device is complete

Recommendations to others considering the product

When you are going to introduce an external device, choose to examine it manually before using it, just to be sure that there are no risks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It was necessary to have protection against viruses and malware and in that ESET has helped us, as well as having a good firewall for each PC.

"ESET Endpoint Security review"

What do you like best?

Award-winning antivirus

Protects you when you're online

Life without ransomware

Keeps your data safe from hijacking

Easily manage your licenses

View and manage your ESET licenses online

Bank and shop online securely

Secures your financial transactions

Smart home devices protected

Checks your home router regularly

All passwords in one place

Generates and stores passwords

Built for speed, accurate detection and low system demands to keep you running smoothly

What do you dislike?

Block websites that I frequently visit making it necessary to disable protection. Could lead to unprotected transactions. Daily scanning a must. The program update procedure can be a bit difficult. It doesn't just auto upgrade major versions, you have to apply them a certain way if you want to manage them via the remote console. Not all the latest versions work with the remote management software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Five Star Security for PC or MAC

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ESET is always at the forefront of cyber security making almost all transactions safe. Evaluates malware-related data. I am one of the million enthusiasts of ESET Endpoint Security.

"Comprehensive Security Solution that doesn't run heavy on your PC/Network."

What do you like best?

ESET Delivers several options/flavors for an end users security needs for their PC's and networks. The things I enjoy most about their products is how light they run on my clients systems and how easily they are to manage and configure. Most importantly, they update their products and definition files rapidly to ensure the end users have the most up to date protection as possible.

What do you dislike?

I can't really say there's anything that I dislike about their product other than I wish their price points were a little more competitive to other commonly used security suites.

Recommendations to others considering the product

All I can really say is that ESET has definitely won me over with their product so far. I honestly can't say anything about their "support" yet because I haven't really had a need to call for support, I look at that as a very good thing though.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I mostly have ESET ES in place for virus and network security. I do have a few clients that enjoy the banking protection as well.

"By Far the Best Firewall, Anti-Virus, and Security for Business, Workstation, and Home End users"

What do you like best?

The best features are the customized settings that are available beginner and advanced users. It offers many factor tools that you can focus on for your specific Computer, Network, and personal preference.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that I dislike about this product; in fact most ESET products are far superior to basically everything else.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have NEVER had a problem with deployment of any of ESETS products across multiple platforms and environments.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

During scanning, I can still use most of my devices without degraded performance by the product and or the machine and network. Detection is fast, with on the fly changing of settings makes for a unique, professional, and satisfying experience.

"Best Endpoint Antivirus solution around!"

What do you like best?

We are happy with the small footprint that this has on our systems. Low CPU/Memory etc

Remote administration tool also allows us to easily manage 6000 systems. In fact this is all done by a single person.

What do you dislike?

This product is perfect for what we do so I have not disklikes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

With our previous software I was constantly plagued with it's various services taking up 70%+ of the CPU at various times on systems. In 10 years I have yet to have a single issue with ESET; it just works. We haven't had any outbreaks as ESET is very good at catching and notifying us of problems. If we need help with exemptions and exclusions ESET has worked with us and various vendors to come up with a solution. Best solution out there by far!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

So easy that one person can manage this as an additional task and not have to have extra staff to manage.

"Lightweight easy to use software"

What do you like best?

This software was chosen by our office to secure everyone's PCs and not one of us have had an issue with it. We have hundreds of emails with trojans sent to us each and everyday, and ESET has protected us from all of them.

What do you dislike?

Its pretty tough to come up with anything that we really dislike about ESET. I guess the only thing is the frequency of updates, but those are essential to keeping the user as safe as possible, and completely understand why they need to happen.`

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main issue that ESET has solved is the frequent phishing attempts, and viruses that are sent to us daily.

"LONG term user. Eset is simply the best."

What do you like best?

Besides being extremely easy to set up and use, ESET gives me total peace of mind. I know I am being protected. I have used ESET since 2005. Ever since switching I have had ZERO let me repeat ZERO major issues. I am always given prompts on dangerous sites, warned on suspicious files, which I promptly scan and either confirm those concerns or are able to clear an unwanted viruses. I used to have regular issues... but not since I switched. Our entire office and every computer in the business uses ESET now too.

What do you dislike?

When new features come out I feel like the information on exactly how to best use the new features aren't explained simply enough. It often takes me months before I know how to use them if I activate them at all. Just because there isn't enough information given early enough upon the release of the new features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

ESET Endpoint Security is the way to go, PERIOD!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Again. Peace of mind. I know our computers are safe. I also am able to curtail unwanted searches and viewing of inappropriate material in the office.

What do you like best?

What I like about it is the fact that I can have this kind of security for my computer and I can walk away I don't have to worry about it I don't have to worry about going to websites that may cause serious damage to my computer I can allow this system to work for me without having to worry

What do you dislike?

There's nothing that I don't like about this it's a really great system and there's nothing that I really can say that about this it's easy to use it's a good interface I don't have to worry that's the greatest thing that I like about it but I don't like about it is not much nothing like I don't like about it

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm not in a business I don't know really what to say here I'm just happy that ESET works for me and I don't have to worry about it that's the greatest thing I don't have to worry about it I left the system handle any kind of problems I run into and I don't worry about it and I would buy the product year after year after year

"ESET Endpoint Security Review"

What do you like best?

ESET has a very small footprint on the local pc's. It does not impact system resources like other products that i have used in the past. It had excellent antivirus/firewall ability.

What do you dislike?

I like most things about this product. I wish the remote administrator had the ability to automatically deploy new versions as they come out. You have to manually set this task up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would strongly consider comparing ESET Endpoint Security against what you are currently using to see what additional benefits might be gained for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a need for network security and also protect our data. ESET Endpoint Protection has the ability to lock down devices. We lock down the use of USB drives to be sure that large amounts of data are not copied and taken off site. This is not always appreciated by the end users, but does help greatly with data security.

"ESET is Great. "

What do you like best?

It provides the additional protection computers need from their users and provides the management you want for an IT professional. The installation was easy and keeps the computers clean. Update often to provide the best security. Good management console. We have 10 servers that run ESET and more than 70 employee computers. In the past, we used several antivirus and security solutions, however, without the ability to manage from a central location, it was difficult to expand our coverage.

What do you dislike?

The procedure for updating the program can be a bit difficult. Not only does it automatically update the main versions, you have to apply them in a certain way if you want to manage them through the remote console. Not all the latest versions work with remote administration software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is recommended when you have an organization with many computers connected to a network. Install the control panel on a server and you can control all security problems from that panel for all computers on the network, without having to approach each computer separately.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Once configured, it is very easy to manage and control clients. All the computers connected to the network have it installed, and we have had little or no problems with the viruses since then.

"Strong and complete protection, easy to use and administer."

What do you like best?

I like it to be easy to use. The centralized management console is very wide. The reports are easy to understand and the central console is very functional, I like that it adapts to different platforms and there are no problems, it works correctly. The activation of the licenses is very easy, everything is done online, it has a simple mode for most users and very advanced settings for advanced users. If used for business, you can control the configuration on all clients from a remote terminal, available on multiple platforms, Linux, Windows, Mac makes it easy to have a single window for most customers, and multiple configurations for small and medium businesses or individual or business users makes the sale very easy.

What do you dislike?

As with all anti-virus software, settings are important! If you go into the advanced settings and tell Eset to alert you at every possible instance, you'll end up with more nag windows than you want. Apply settings that are a good fit and you'll be happy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Complete protection, and ease of use. Customer support is there should you need them, and they know exactly what they are doing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have used ESET products for our company for 3 years. We stumbled when we upgraded to Windows 10, but ESET came out with a solution immediately. We have been very impressed by its functionality and ability to proactively manage protection.

"Lightweight but effective"

What do you like best?

The best feature of ESET is that it is so lightweight! It's like I don't have anything running at all, but the effectiveness is amazing..

I do web development so I am all over the web all of the time .. and have not had an incident of any kind since I started using ESET

What do you dislike?

There's really nothing to dislike.. unless it was offered at a lower price!

What do you like best?

I've never had a virus attack that was successful since I got ESET

What do you dislike?

Nothing. So far everything has been great. 6+ years as a customer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want the best protection at the best price with the best customer service, then go with ESET. If you don't care about your machines, your privacy or your protection, any old security service will probably do.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It gives me peace of mind when I or others access the internet for business OR pleasure. I know that no attack will succeed and if it does, ESET will make it right.

"Great Antivirus software "

What do you like best?

ESET is a great antivirus software that runs in the background and doesn’t slow down your computer at all and it automatically updates you on potential threats so you do not have to worry about them. The updates are quick and use low bandwidth. It is easy to set up and we have it set up on about 15 different computers in our clinic. The price is comparable to most other antivirus software and it works on all operating systems. The anti-theft feature is also really neat because it can help protect your mobile device and if your phone is stolen it can lock your device or wipe it clean so that your information is not compromised.

What do you dislike?

I do not have any dislikes about ESET right now because the software has been doing great and we have not had any problems with it which means it is doing its job.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Eset is a great anti virus software. Our company uses it on multiple computers and we have not had any problems at all! If you are looking to switch it is definitely a great choice!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for Antivirus protection for the computers in our clinic and we have not had any complaints about the software it really does its job! We have it on about 15 computers in the clinic and it runs in the background and does not slow down the computer at all.

"Great Product, Great Ratings, So Far So Good"

What do you like best?

The ease of access to the app, install, configuration (for the most part). The ratings for this are great, runs in the background with no apparent overhead to bog things down. Comes with secure website portal access when it detects the user might be on a bank/financial site. When I needed a secondary license (in the middle of my renewal period), they sold me one at a pro-rated rate so that the renewal process is smooth going forward.

What do you dislike?

Enabling the laptop theft security setting on the laptop (2nd PC) was not as straight-forward as one might think. I had to Google the subject to find out how to get around the endless loop I was stuck in, then it was fine. I consider that a bug in their software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Very happy with the overall product. Previous company I worked for switched from the big companies (Norton) to this product due to the overall reputation of the product.

"Efficient and easy to administrate"

What do you like best?

Deployment of the software was what I liked most. All I simply had to due was upload the package from my software server via group policies and I could massively install the product across my network.

What do you dislike?

There wasn't much that I didn't like. I guess pricing wise versus the competition could be a little steep but with AV software, you sort of get what you pay for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In our experience, ESET sets the bar for what we expected from an enterprise grade AV solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest issue that we solved was how to centrally administrate all of my endpoints from a central point, versus having to manually adjust settings on a per endpoint basis. The obvious benefits to this is time and resource savings.

"Antivirus stays quietly in the background and doing it's job"

What do you like best?

I like this Antivirus for our business as it is quietly doing it's job in the background without constant messages and alerts interrupting our work (like Norton Antivirus and McAffee). Once in a while it will display an alert Pop up Message if there is something serious going on.

What do you dislike?

For renewal of the yearly subscription we have to go through the whole exercise again to find the best rate and plan on the web for our small business. It would be nice if ESET gave their long term customers the best price with biggest discounts available on the market automatically when renewing the subscription instead of having to go out and find it every time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Google for some discount codes rather than buying directly from their website

"ESET what AV should be"

What do you like best?

ESET is a fully functioning, real-time, AV but it has a low impact on the machines it is installed on. They haven't loaded their product up with a bunch of unnecessary bloatware like some of the other big players.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it is difficult to get the help/support I need because I don't always know what channel to go through for my questions.

"Light Weight Fast Effective for home to the entrprise"

What do you like best?

I have been using ESET since 2002. It is Light Weight, Fast, and Effective. I feel secure and the pricing is right. The tight web integration as well as blocking malicious sites on demand is extremely necessary in today's web demanding traffic.

What do you dislike?

Maybe add pricing to go out longer than just two years.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have used ESET since 2002. It is Light Weight, Fast, and Effective. I highly recommend for any sized environment from a home user to a large enterprise. Extremely light weight and fast at identifying and stopping virus and malware propagation. One of the best features is not allowing access to a file that is discovered to have a virus.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using ESET since 2002. It is Light Weight, Fast, and Effective. Always know that there is solid protection. Solid antivirus definitions and updates as needed to combat the most recent viruses identified. Malware and antivirus coupled with know malicious website blocking are key with high web use clients and customers.

"Decent Anti-Virus"

What do you like best?

Simplicity. Yes, these days most of the anti-virus companies focus on making their anti-virus UI look like more from 2050, like AI, but the fact is, anti-virus should be more simple and more efficient and should not make laptop slow. ESet know's this thing very well and their UI is very neat and simple which does not effect the speed of the computer at all. Even while scanning, you can do multi-tasking easily. I have used this product, in the past, and in a loptop with 8gb of ram I used to put computer on scan and play GTA 5 without any problem, but when I switched to Bitdefender, things changed.

What do you dislike?

The security. Efficiency of anti-virus can be improved, its decent at the moment but I believe it has a veru good scope to improving, and once done, I doubt there will be any anti-virus to beat this one. I mean simple UI, more efficient, less usage of memory, what else does one want?

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a laptop or desktop which is low on RAM, like 4gb or less, You should only consider this product, and if you want a product which should not slow down your laptop, nothing is better than this ESet. I have used it on high-end laptops as well as on low config laptops and it works like charm on both.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this anti-virus for my personnel laptop, and it works really well and does its task very effectively.

"ESET is easy to use and runs fast on my computer."

What do you like best?

The updates regarding potential online threats are incredibly helpful in not only being safer but improves my agency over choices online.

What do you dislike?

I haven't mastered the application yet because I think I sometimes get false negatives on security alerts.

Recommendations to others considering the product

ESET has many trial opportunities and I always recommend to my friends to switch during promotions. These promotions allowed me to quickly determine ESET was right for me.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Security literacy is probably the best I've seen for consumer grade security applications. I know I have a long way to go and ESET is helping me get there.

"Security that does the trick"

What do you like best?

Low maintenance and doesn't seem to have a huge impact on system performance like I've experienced with other applications. User interface is clean and simple. Easy to navigate and get around the app. performance seems to be really good.

What do you dislike?

Some items get caught and are not easy to back out and allow to move forward. would be nice if they offered a way to see what kind of threats are out right now to allow me to be a little more aware of what could impact my computer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try. It works better than some of the other more known products. If they have a trial no reason to not check it out. I think it is a pretty good product, with good experience, and decent service.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

virus protection is the primary driver. also used for email protection. We have seen a lot less virus issues with ESET than with other similar applications.

"Great product - Better then all the rest"

What do you like best?

Eset does NOT slow your computer down like all the rest. We have been running it for the last 5 years and have had zero issues. The servers do not get slow, the speed remains the same. It has caught and cleaned many viruses. It reports it to you. Can't say enough about the product!

What do you dislike?

Nothing. I wish I didn't need to install any anti-virus program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Stop looking and just use a really good product. We have it installed on 100 of users. All very happy!!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Virus protection. Speed of computer.

"A really good security system for your computer"

What do you like best?

I've used Eset for quite a while now, my experience with this software has been just amazing, before I had to scan my computer almost everyday because it was slow or I was having problems with spywares, I've been using this software for almost a month now in the trial version and my computer has never been so fast and solid, virus and malware advices are always on point so your pc is protected almost guaranteed (not 100% because it's impossible)

What do you dislike?

The fact that it's not free is probably one of the hardest things to deal with, I'm now thinking about buying or not, I think it could be worth it, but it's a decisition I have to think well because there are others good alternatives like avast and so.

Recommendations to others considering the product

if you don't mind paying for software and want a good security system it'll be completely worth I can assure you that, the difference between this suit and others is big. In the other hand there are a couple of good alternatives like Avast which is amazing too. You can Give this software a try for one month and if you like it you can buy it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I started using Eset in the company I work on, they have it in the windows computers and the computers are pretty robust and solid, so I decided to give a try in my personal computer. Security of your files is almost guaranteed and the problems of your computer will be less than before.

"Powerful but quiet “eset”"

What do you like best?

I have never had any virus issues since I started using “eset” a number of years ago. It updates automatically, takes up very little memory, and runs quietly and efficiently in the background. On the rare occasions when I have contacted customer service they have been very friendly, helpful, and professional. I would strongly recommend using eset antivirus software.

What do you dislike?

I have found nothing to dislike. It has features which operate in the background of which I am not even aware..

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It scans incoming emails from clients preventing unwanted viruses being accidentally introduced.

What do you dislike?

No big problems, some issues in updates of virus definitions and upgrades of some devices in the network and some complicated uninstall of corrupted programs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You need clean others AV / Antimalwares softwares, dont needed other solutions. neither web scanners

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Was achieved greater control of protectionon all network, without degradation of the efficiency of computers and servers, with ESET Remote Administrator is very easy to apply rules, updates and configure security on any computer

"Easy UI, Great Protection, Non-Hogging of System Resources"

What do you like best?

User interfaces are really important to me when it comes to supposid complex applications. It's pretty well known that a program with high capabilities have the stereotype of the user interface being "messy". With ESet products and more specifically their NOD32 suite's, the user interface is beyond easy to use and understand which eliminates the need to "learn" the program when you need it to do only one thing, protect the computer to the best of its ability! Too simple of an interface? Need more options? Switch to advance mode and BOOM, lots of options to tinker with to your own personal liking. When checking the performance results when scanning and have active protection, NOD32 does not eat up my computer resources which allows me to continue my work without worrying about the performance drop.

What do you dislike?

Lately, I've been getting a lot of false positives. Not quite sure why the cause of that would be and I'm not running any pirated material or malicious codes on my computer, it flagged my AIM application as a warning but I didn't find AIM to be infected. Sometimes I will have issues connecting to ESET's database to update my definitions and I know it's not a network problem on my end.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When considering anti-virus programs, do your research to see what you need out of your protection suite. If you're looking for an all in one solution such as firewall, anti-virus, etc, you should consider to individual products as they are focused better that way.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The only benefit that I've found from an anti-virus program is the fact it does not take up my resources because maintaining my systems performance is extremely important. It doesn't make sense for this time of age for a program that is to protect the computer should not slow down the computer.

"Great Value - Great Price"

What do you like best?

ESET has a great functionality set for the price. Great value with ease of management and superior protection. ESET has kept us safe for over 10 years.

What do you dislike?

ESET has no attributes that I can speak poorly of.

We have always have great experience with product and its support team.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The Port scanning tool has been fantastic. We do not have an intrusion prevention system, so being able to leverage scans at the desktop level has been helpful for us whatever we have dozens of VLANs in our network

"Peace of Mind"

What do you like best?

I particularly like how the alert window pops up if a certificate is not up to date, or unsafe. There aren't any guessing games when it comes to validity. If it comes up looking fishy, ESET will catch it. I also like the fact that the updates means it's always staying current.

What do you dislike?

ESET is super sensitive. First, the firewall conflicts with my MAC & doesn't function with the updated Mac software. Also, my recent renewal disrupted the pathways & made my printer go offline.

Recommendations to others considering the product

GET IT.... IT WORKS. Hopefully they'll work on the compatibility a bit more & it will be even better!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work in an industry that is constantly under fraudulent activity. This gives me peace of mind.

"ESet - As enterprise viruscanner solution"

What do you like best?

The main function of ESET for us are:

- multi-platform virus scanner (different type of servers and workstations), which is really great that 3-4 different platforms can be covered with the same centralised tool

- centralised administration - good overview of any machines are behind with virus database updates, but what's more if any machine is behind with e.g. windows updates, which I think is a great feature

- centralised threat identification - if there is any machine with a threat, system administrators can contact the colleague easily to help him

- has the usual options (device protection, mail protection, web protection, real-time protection, etc)

- usually it does not eat up the resources of your computer (I will make further remarks about this)

- when you buy several licenses or you prepay for more years - as usual in such a case, you get friendlier prices

What do you dislike?

The list is not that long, as in most of the cases the product does its job on an invisible mode, which is great, however I found 2 annoyances:

- sometimes ESET (on MAC) does eats up resources and you computer goes like a car with a handbreak on, everything becomes sluggish, activity monitor is in red and when you check what goes on, ESET is eating CPU away - happens quite randomly and in such a case it is checking all files on computer usually (not a scheduled job, have not figured out yet, what event triggers this behaviour)

- after it has been installed newly on a MAC, it started blocking non problematic sites, which had no issues a few days ago, and also had no issues that time when ESET was on, this happened with many sites especially with blogs, up till that level of annoyance that some features had to be turned off (which is well, not so great)

- the scanner gives some false alarms for certain delphi BPL packages (that finally we excluded from the search paths of the scanner)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Maybe this recommendation can be rather complex at the end - but first check what type of platforms and how many computers/devices (yes devices, as ESET also can handle mobile devices) you need to cover and how high is the need to cover everything with one centralised solution. If the one solution is not a must, then you can end up with 2-3 "best for the platform" solutions, that can make administration more complex and financially less attractive. There is a big overlap at the virus protection solutions, so check, if you need other features which are covering other areas of IT security, like software firewalls - but also check, what can it mean from internal system administration point of view, as the extra features sometimes introduces "surprise issues". As much as possible, try out different solutions, to see, for that type of usage if the real-time protection handles resources correctly or make the machine / device sluggish.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use ESET as an enterprise virus protection solution - on Windows and Linux servers, on Windows machines and MAC computers - which is great thing to cover different platforms with one centralised solution. The administrative overview with the virus database update statuses and windows patch statuses is really great to have.

Our servers are used by many people, it is essential to have a good control over the files placed on them to ensure a secure environment there.
