ESET Security Review

ESET has a solid anti-malware engine, useful firewall settings as well as a password manager that offers form filling, browser protection and excellent security tools for networks. Its parental controls, secure browser and anti-theft tools are good but not great. Unlike many competitors, it doesn’t include the VPN service or microphone protection, however it does provide remote screen capture and camera access so you can check out what a criminal is doing on your laptop or mobile.

The program is designed using an intuitive interface that beginners can easily grasp however, it also includes specific information and features designed for advanced users. The company also offers excellent customer support, which can be accessed through their website or directly from the client via the “support” tab located all the way at the bottom of the app.

The status bar of ESET Internet Security at the top displays the protection it is providing for your computer. It also provides precise statistics on the security. The software will notify you on the desktop, close to the system tray, when something is happening on your computer.

However, the antivirus’s anti-phishing tools were a bit too vigilant and it blocked quite a handful of websites that were not listed on PhishTank which I trust. In addition when we connected into a USB storage device into our laptop, the software automatically scans it which was somewhat annoying since many other programs ask for permission to scan the device.
