PassMark Grades ESET Smart Security "Fastest, Best Overall Performance"

SAN DIEGO – June 18, 2010
ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, today announced that PassMark Software, a leading authority in software and hardware performance benchmarking and testing, has ranked ESET Smart Security – Business Edition the number one endpoint security for business. In a comparative analysis, PassMark Software tested the performance, the effectiveness and the usability of seven security solutions from some of the world's largest security vendors. PassMark Software then assigned each security product a rating tied to its overall performance, ease of use, design, features and level of excellence in that category. Categories represent major functions or feature sets common to the sphere of business security.

"The Remote Administrator console is highly compatible with most variants and legacy versions of ESET security products, all of which can be managed simultaneously from a single platform. The flexibility of the Remote Administrator console caters well to scenarios where client upgrades may not be possible," wrote Karen Lai, Head Research Analyst, PassMark Software. "Navigating from the Remote Administrator console interface was extremely responsive, taking a fraction of a second to navigate between windows and menus."

"We are pleased that ESET Smart Security - Business Edition took home the top honors in the PassMark testing as we've made a number of key upgrades to streamline management workflow for medium and large business customers," said Anton Zajac, CEO, ESET LLC. "Major time and resource improvements in the areas of group and policy management, remote installation and ability to manage multi-platform endpoints from a single console combine to increase productivity while reducing IT man-hours and response time."

ESET is powered by ThreatSense® technology, an advanced heuristics engine that enables proactive detection of malware not covered by even the most frequently updated signature-based products. Unlike traditional approaches, ESET solutions decode and analyze executable code in real-time, using an emulated environment. By allowing malware to execute in a secure virtual world, ESET is able to clearly differentiate between benign files and even the most sophisticated and cleverly-disguised malware.
