ESET has introduced of ESET Smart Security, a new, integrated security solution for consumers and businesses. It includes antivirus, antispyware, antispam and firewall features built on ESET's award-winning advanced heuristic
ThreatSense detection system and the ESET NOD32 scanning engine. ESET Smart Security combines speed, accuracy and minimal computer system impact to deliver a significant improvement over traditional solutions in the marketplace today. It provides the industry's highest level of accuracy and fewest false-positives through ESET NOD32 Antivirus.
With significantly lower performance overhead compared to conventional solutions, ESET Smart Security uses only 40MB of disk space and scans systems up to 30-times faster than other products.
"Threats no longer appear in the form of pure viruses or spam or phishing. They now come as `blended' threats which require an integration and intelligence among individual security features. Smart computer users are looking for the best level of integrated protection with the minimal amount of inconvenience," says Justin Stanford, CEO of ESET Southern Africa.
"This drives users to look for malware solutions that provide great protection, are easy to install, don't slow down their computers and work completely behind the scenes."
Unlike security suites which combine standalone products, ESET Smart Security tightly integrates the antispyware, antispam and firewall features with the new version of ESET's flagship ESET NOD32 Antivirus scanning engine. This tight integration allows each module to share information with the other to evaluate and classify every threat appropriately.
ESET's ThreatSense technology provides the industry's highest level of accuracy. It is the only antivirus technology that has not missed an in-the-wild-virus in Virus Bulletin VB 100 testing over the past nine years, while producing only one false-positive during that time. It has also received more Advanced+ awards from AV-Comparatives.org for proactive protection than any other product.
"Our research indicates that consumers and businesses are looking for maximum protection, low system requirements, accurate results and fast scanning speeds–in that order. They are tired of solutions that slow down their computers and interfere with other applications," says Stanford.
"ESET set out to build a solution that addressed these concerns while offering the best level of protection available. With ESET Smart Security, we've surpassed our goal and savvy computer users will be amazed by its ease of use, intelligent lightweight design and near-zero impact on system performance."
