ESET Security Review

ESET provides a solid anti-malware engine and firewall settings. It also comes with a password manager that includes form filling, protection for browsers and a password management. Its parental controls and secure browser as well as anti-theft tools are also good but not exceptional. It doesn’t include a VPN or microphone protection, but it does offer remote screen capture or camera access to check what a criminal has been doing on your mobile or laptop.

The app is designed with an intuitive interface that beginners can easily understand but also contains specific information and features designed for advanced users. The company offers outstanding customer service, which is available via their website or via the client directly through the “support” button at the bottom of every app.

The status bar on ESET Internet Security on top of the screen shows the level of protection it provides to your computer. It also provides precise statistics on the security. If something is happening that is significant on your computer or you have to take actions, the software provides clear and concise notifications on the desktop close to the tray of your system.

The antiphishing tools in the antivirus were overly vigilant and blocked a variety of websites that I believed to be safe but were not listed on PhishTank. It also tests USB storage devices when they are connected to our laptop. This was uncomfortable, since many other antiviruses require permission.
