ESET Security Review
For the money ESET’s suite is among of the top. Its malware detection rate comes close to being perfect and the suite includes an array of useful features in a compact footprint. Premium versions include parental controls, a secure web browser and a password management in addition to the Android package includes an anti-theft feature that helps you locate your missing phone. The features that protect networks such as a firewall and the option to check home devices for vulnerabilities, are great.
One of the most popular is SysInspector, a useful tool that takes a picture of your system and highlights running processes as well as crucial Registry entries, and other information. It can be daunting for beginners. However, if are familiar with task managers like those found in Sysinternals’ process explorer you’ll be at comfortable.
Another excellent feature is the ability to schedule scans on demand. This is an excellent alternative to real-time security as it’s quick and easy to use. It’s just a shame ESET doesn’t group this with other scheduling tasks and its UI makes it a bit more difficult to locate than some of its competitors.
The password manager is very user-friendly and comes with many features. It’s an extremely effective form filler that works well for online banking. The password manager is available only in the premium version that requires an ESET account to use it, is as effective as a number of standalone solutions.
