eset security review
For the money ESET’s suite is one of the top. Its malware detection rate comes close to perfection and the suite offers a variety of other features in a small footprint. Premium versions include parental controls, a secure web browser and a password management in addition to the Android package includes a anti-theft feature that can help you locate your lost phone. The network security features are excellent, with the option of a firewall as well as to check your home devices for vulnerabilities.
SysInspector is an outstanding tool. It creates a snapshot and highlights important Registry entries and running processes. It’s a bit intimidating for newbies however if you’re used to extended task managers like those in the Sysinternals process explorer, you’ll feel right at in the comfort of your own home.
Scheduling scans at a specific time is a great feature. This is a great alternative to real-time security, as it’s quick and easy to use. It’s a shame that ESET does not include this in its list of other scheduling tasks, and its UI makes it a bit harder to find as compared to other competitors.
Other important features include a powerful form filler for online banking, a great spam filter that scores the highest scores in our tests, and a highly effective password manager that’s simple to use. The password manager is only available in the premium version and requires an account with ESET to use it, works as well as other standalone solutions.
