Recent News - Say Hello to ESET Smart Security 9 and ESET NOD32 Antivirus 9


2015-10-15

Full-featured, Windows 10 compatible security software praised by reviewers and beta testers is now available worldwide.

ESET®, a global pioneer in proactive protection for more than two decades, announces today the availability of its new security solutions for Windows home users: ESET Smart Security® 9 and ESET NOD32® Antivirus 9. Both have a completely re-engineered user interface and ESET Smart Security 9 features a new tool to protect customers’ banking transactions and online payments. 

Maintaining its renowned lightweight footprint, ESET has re-engineered its security products to improve usability and performance, with a completely re-designed user interface. Both products are compatible with Microsoft’s newest operating system, Windows 10. ESET Smart Security® 9 is an all-in-one Internet security solution built around the legendary ESET NOD32® detection technology.

On top of other technologies that protect customers from Internet threats in ESET Smart Security 9 is new Banking & Payment Protection. This feature secures the user’s browser of choice to ensure that all their online financial transactions are processed safely – for online banking sites it works automatically.

The demand for such a feature arose from the growing use of online banking by consumers worldwide, which has made this service a target for cyber criminals.

 

“ESET products are engineered with a multi-layered approach that protects users from all types of threats at different levels. We see a constant increase in malware that targets banking and financial information and operations, and while we have technologies in place that can block them, we have designed a completely new feature that improves the experience of our customers and secures their online money-related activities at a whole different level.”, said Palo Luka, Chief Technology Officer at ESET.

ESET Smart Security 9 multi-layered security also includes proven technologies such as Botnet Protection, Exploit Blocker and Vulnerability Shield. These and many more are described in detail on the ESET Technology page. Botnet Protection protects the user’s computer from being taken over by a remote attacker and used as part of a network of infected computers for malicious purposes. Exploit Blocker is designed to fortify applications on the user’s system that are often exploited, such as web browsers, PDF readers, email clients or MS Office components, while Vulnerability Shield improves detection of known vulnerabilities on the network level.

Softpedia.com, a news website and download provider, awarded ESET Smart Security 4.5/5 stars, and concluded its Editor’s Review as follows:

 

“ESET is known to bring very good results when it comes to virus detection ratio, scanning speed and resources usage. Smart Security lives up to its name, providing users with various layers of security against e-threats while navigating the web or granting PC access to other users.”,

“We received very good feedback from our Beta testers’ community and third-party test labs on this new product’s performance and features,” said Eduard Kesely, Senior Product Manager at ESET. “We are thrilled by the positive reception we got from them, which validates the very positive results we got in our internal tests. We believe ESET Smart Security 9 and ESET NOD32 Antivirus 9 will be able to continue providing a high level of security to our customers without slowing down their systems, allowing them to enjoy the Internet without needing to constantly worry about the threats out there.”
