ESET Receives "Compatible with Windows 7" Logo from Microsoft

SAN DIEGO – February 10, 2010
ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, today announced it has obtained the "Compatible with Windows 7" logo. The Windows 7 logo program aims to help customers make better purchase decisions by identifying products via the "Compatible with Windows 7" logo that have passed Microsoft Corp.-designed tests for compatibility and reliability with Windows 7.

The products receiving certification are ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 and ESET Smart Security 4.

"The Windows 7 logo further underscores the universal appeal of ESET software," said Richard Marko, chief technology officer. "ESET products are well known for their superb detection, light footprint and ability to play nice with other programs."

In order to ensure full compatibility with Windows 7, ESET recommends that customers with releases prior to 4.0.474 download the installation packages for ESET Smart Security 4 and ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4, as well as ESET Remote Administrator 3 for business users. These updates are free for licensed users. After downloading these products, it is recommended they be installed over existing copies.

ESET's industry-leading products, including the popular NOD32 Antivirus and ESET Smart Security, deliver a significant improvement over traditional solutions in the marketplace today. Powered by ThreatSense® technology, ESET's products combine speed, accuracy and minimal system impact. The advanced heuristics engine enables proactive detection of malware not covered by even the most frequently updated signature-based products. Unlike traditional approaches, ESET solutions use an emulated environment to decode and analyze executable code in real-time. By allowing malware to execute in a secure virtual machine, ESET is able to clearly differentiate between benign files and even the most sophisticated and cleverly-disguised malware.
