ESET keeps you safe

Great software without all the bloat

Install mostly on servers to protect from virus.

Pros

I use this mostly for servers I deploy. I like that its a small footprint and not bloatware. Does not block internal items right from install, which I love not having to speed hours configuring items to allow.

Cons

It does lack a little ease of use when setting allow lists. Their web site didnt have the latest version directions to change settings, so I had to mess around a little.

Light weight virus gaurd

I use this virus guard for my personal desktop computer and laptop over than 6 years. Never got virus attack. If you update continually no need to worry. I recommend this virus guard

Pros

This virus gaurd is light weight. So, it not make computer slow. If you update the software continually, no need to worry about any virus.

Cons

Sometimes, virus database update take little bit longer to get new one. But the overall product is not bad.

A great antivirus software that does not use too much of processing power

Pros

Very easy to install. I did not notice any diminution in processing speed after installing the software and having it run background processes, unlike the competition.

Cons

Only one time the software was not able to detect malware so I had to install the competitor software to remove it.

I LOVE THIS ANTIVIRUS!

Pros

Hands down the most lightweight and awesome antivirus I have ever used. It's efficient and so unobtrusive you can't even tell when it's doing a scan on your computer.

Cons

My only complaint is that the software can be very 'naggy' if you aren't careful with how you set up notifications initially.

Eset Endpoint Security

My department (Accounting) runs on ESET because all of our computers were blocking sites that were due to false threats. We took our computers off of a better known, more popular Endpoint software and the problem stopped. My experience with it has been great.

Pros

I have used many security software, but ESET has eliminated all the false positive infected items I used to get. You load it and teach it the types of places you got, and you forget it. Before ESET, IT was getting infected reports on me almost weekly and they were all false. Now, ESET blocks real threats with zero false positives sent to IT. It is reasonably priced - the same or less than other nationally known software.

Cons

During the initial period while you are "training" the software to your particular usage you get popups asking you about a particular site. Once the training period is over it stops and you forget it is running in background.

Nice Product

Pros

Eset endpoint security is very powerful in protecting the system as it can find all kind of malicious threats to the system (trojans, adware, worms etc). It is safe to use.

Comprehensive Security

For businesses this program is the right choice in protecting your servers and computers.

Pros

With the multilayered defense structure its very hard to have attacks from networks and has ransomware shield which is very effective, another interesting feature is machine learning that is used in the form of consolidated output and neural networks. Working as promised.

Cons

The anti-virus program is a bit pricey and also the system needs computers with high processing power to run efficiently.

Protection you can count on!

Pros

This is a lightweight antivirus endpoint protection software that works in the background. It doesn't slow your computer down like some of the other protection software does. It has a clean, easy to understand interface.

Cons

I couldn't find much in the way of setting up alerts to send to my email.

Love the AV, not a fan of the Remote Administration

Switched from Sophos several years ago to ESET and have not had a major infection since. ESET has been reliable and for the most part easy to manage. Most of my complaints are with the v6+ Administrative center and endpoint software. Some of my complaints were addressed and handled in future releases of the software. Reporting, especially the web control reporting, remains an issue in v6. ESET not even providing a pre-built report for that portion of their software. At the end of the day, what really matters is the end point security, and ESET is where I go every time I need AV, whether it is on my person computers, work computers, or those of friends and family.

Pros

Secure and Reliable AV without a huge impact on performance
Priced competitively
Centralized management with AD Integration

Cons

Reporting is lacking in accuracy and robustness
License management is slightly annoying, endpoints always duplicating and eating up the licensing
No transparent way to esnure End Points have the latest version of the core application automatically

For enterprise security software, it's not very good

Pros

The featureset is solid, and theoretically should make it much easier to manage a large number of workstations.

Cons

There are bugs. Some ports that are commonly used cannot be used. It even had to be disabled because of a memory leak.

Lightweight and full protection of endpoints

Pros

There are three things that are wonderful and ESETs software. It is lightweight, comprehensive, and nimble. The client takes up a very little about of RAM and the scanning is very fast. It continues to win AV100 awards and i've never had an active infection on a customer's computer that ESET could not mitigate. Lastly, because of livegrid, it constantly protects against 0day and other threats.

Cons

I wish the price was cheaper. ESET is affordable, but not cheap. Their ratings also seem to have fallen (slightly) in recent years.

The typical antivirus security

There were no overall decision makers that could make or break my decision.

Pros

It is the typical antivirus solution in a lightweight download and running smoothly in the background, it was able to detect infections on all the tests I put it through and will continue to use it when needed

Cons

Very minimal use other than an antivirus security software

Best Light weight Virus guard

I use this in my personal Laptop. It is very good software. I recommend this.

Pros

This software has a very good user friendly interface and this use only very small capacity of ram. So, machine speed doesn't reduce.

Cons

Some small trojan virus, spam doesn't detect sometime. Some updates little bit delay.

ESET = BEST

Great option for total security for your business.

Pros

We've been using ESET Security for many of our systems at work for quite some time now and the crew seems to love it.
It runs quietly in the background and notifies you if there's anything that requires your attention.
ESET is keeping our data safe and our devices healthy.

Cons

A bit laggy to load up on initial start-up, but no other issues have been noticed by me personally.

Best security today

Long term users due to confidence in the product, and plus all the tests are showing the quality of this product...

Pros

We have had in our company many different companies in Security department, and the only one that stayed more than 5 years is ESET Endpoint Security. We mainly use it for Antivirus, which monitors our internal network with more than 200 points. It is really important to have a top quality product Security wise, as our customers are expecting top service. It would not be nice for our customers, as well as for our administration to have Security problems on our network.

Highly recommendable product

Cons

When the validity expires the software slows down a bit and is not checking the security, there should be some 2-3 weeks period with fully functional software (to get new keys...)
