Extreme Security

Effective security for your computer would definitely recommend its implementation.

Pros

The new system has an awesome user interface, Security of data and privacy is as promised 100%, effective scans and disinfection

Cons

Scanning takes a lot of time especially full scans, also this setup takes up a lot of RAM thus not ideal for slow computers.

ESET for Home-Personal use

Ease of installation and fair price for the product are 2 of the major drawls for this program. They offer 3 products, and I recommend just the Anti-virus product. Windows provides more than enough protection for web browsing and if you stick with SSL sites, you don;t need the extra "product weight" which will slow your system down.

Pros

Low cost
Ease of installation/configuration
Good overall protection

Cons

Seems that it takes quite a long time for ESET to address/fix bugs in updates
They have a forum where users post "fixes", however, I've found that the suggestions that are posted here are more of people "grasping at straws", than actual solutions/work-arounds.

Rock Solid AV

If you're already familiar with the ESET suite of management tools, this is a sure bet. For new users, there will be a slight learning curve.

Pros

The ESET detection engine is rock solid. I have confidence this security software will provide effective protection to clients.

Cons

Management tools have lagged behind "cloud" first alternatives.

ESET - Ok software? but AVG would be better

Mediocre, If I had the choice I would purchase something else. I am sure it works fine. Never had a issue but I know of other solutions that I feel work better for me. All opinion though.

Pros

It ran behind the scenes with no problems. After our subscription ran out we kept getting popups. That is normal but still annoying. When I get annoyed I loose interest very fast.

Cons

Uninstall procedure was annoying. It threw false positives for my clients. I had to go help them uninstall it even though they were doing it right. Kept prompting for admin access (not ACL) and I just had to hit next. Had to remove two parts.

eset antivirus

It offers firewalls and real time and on demand protection and scanning to your system alerting you when a threats are detected and you can overide how it reacts to particular threats and notifying you before it attempts to clean, delete or quarantines files

Pros

Its a lightweight antivirus which runs easily without taking up a large portion of system resources yet still offering system protection

Cons

it no longer supports offline updates so to update the virus database you need an internet connection on the actual machine you need to update instead of before when you can download a zip update which you can run offline across all your machines

Great Antivirus ESET!

Great Antivirus, Easy to manage and do not affect the performance of my laptop at all.

Pros

ESET Endpoint Antivirus is what my brother is using on his laptop, so he encouraged me to try it myself too. Then after a month of using it, I figured out. This is the great Antivirus I've tried so far. It doesn't affect the performance of my laptop. Gives total protection on my personal laptop too. Seriously, I would recommend this too with my colleagues.

Cons

No negative feedbacks from me at all. This is Perfect for what can do. Just gives us updates more without spending so much penny.

Excellent software that fulfills security purposes in a best way

I am having wonderful experience with this product. I really love its simple interface along with easy ways of installation and consoling endpoint. Its team is working perfectly.

Pros

If I talk about pros, I would say it is the most fantastic software that can be used in a best way not only for laptop protection but also its license can be applied to many other products. Moreover its interesting features include immediate installation and its ease of use is another plus point. It is the cheapest software that can be easily affordable by several firms.

Cons

It fulfills the requirements of an antivirus. There is not a big issue because it is a powerful tool. While running it, system gets a bit slower and the reason; it is a heavy program that takes much power of device while working.

Sometimes it may slow down the performance of my computer but not always

Ensure your Computer Security is on Point with ESET Endpoint Security

In terms of threat identification and taking of actions, ESET Endpoint Security is a great tool. So easy to acquire, implement, and use. Again, it consumes less computer RAM.

Pros

Unlike with many security tools, ESET Endpoint Security is one of the easiest to use product, that performs its roles efficiently. With ESET Endpoint Security all the malware get detected and the appropriate actions taken. Furthermore, ESET Endpoint Security is a light application, which takes small amount of the device's space. Again, in case of any question, the support of ESET Endpoint Security responds confidently.

Cons

But ESET Endpoint Security still requires more improvements. That is, the vendor should release updates frequently, to ensure that no emerging malware can gain the access of a computer. Again, ESET Endpoint Security should beef up their threat identification on malicious sites.

Best detection rates I've seen

Having deployments ranging in size from 5 to 100+ endpoints I've had excellent success protecting my clients from viruses and malware. I've only seen one infection on a system running a current and updated version of ESET.

Pros

Detection rates are superior to most other products I've evaluated, and when I find an infection I often save the files and test it against other products to see. The remote management product makes deployment to large networks possible and provides a dashboard to see the status and any potential problems. Another feature that has been strongly favored among my client is Device Control which allows blocking devices that present security issues such as USB flash drives. Support is also wonderful when needed.

Cons

The remote management console and it's deployment methods have a slight learning curve. I have found other competing software to be slightly easier to deploy to large networks, however ESET Support was quick to walk me through what I needed to know.

ESET Endpoint Security is not Up to Task for Organizational Protection.

One cannot solely rely with ESET Endpoint Security for total security. In my view and based on my encounter, ESET Endpoint Security cannot guarantee full security compliance, more so in the current tecno world. As a result, one may decide to get another solution other than ESET Endpoint Security.

Pros

To obtain ESET Endpoint Security in your computer system is an easy task, which will normally take less time compared with other security tools. Eventually, ESET Endpoint Security is a light software, which consumes less RAM in a computer.

Cons

But in terms of capabilities, ESET Endpoint Security is not up to task, and this limits its reliability. For instance, ESET Endpoint Security is not efficient in security threat identification and blocking. Furthermore, it fails to discover malicious sites and block them. Lastly, the vendor takes too long to offer improvements, not forgetting that hackers and crackers still evolve.

ESET Endpoint Security Demands Some Extra Improvements.

In terms of security concerns, ESET Endpoint Security under-performs its roles, and therefore, one cannot relax and rely with it alone. As a result, the vendor should make it more perfect and dynamic.

Pros

ESET Endpoint Security has some few merits. One, ESET Endpoint Security is so cheap, which means, most of the firms can comfortably afford it. Two, ESET Endpoint Security is an easy to use software, where every person in an organization can run it.

Cons

Unfortunately, the capabilities of ESET Endpoint Security are limited. That is, it fails to effectively identify threats, be them from the internet or from malicious software. Again, ESET Endpoint Security has a weird user interface, and this may put of the user. Lastly, ESET Endpoint Security limits the number of users.

Great lightweight Anti Virus

Pros

The software requires very little resources to run, catches and blocks a lot of malicious and fake alert web pages and has great customization. Easy to deploy. Great monitoring and reporting.

Cons

Sometimes the module updates can get stuck and hang on slow internet connections. Some alerts are a bit difficult to identify how to clear.
