ESET Smart Security strives to be the ‘ultimate guardian’ of your online safety. The creators say that its most recent edition was built without compromise for users who want it all. ESET ranks among the leaders in virus, trojan and spyware detection and deletion. This new and updated software looks to continue their legacy.
ESET Smart Security’s top feature has to be its secure data encryption. This means that it will provide ultra-secure safeguarding of your files, through encrypting files and removable media - should you be a victim of theft or loss. It will also secure your digital identity and payments, as well as keep your children safe online and scores of other benefits.
Key features include:
- Legendary antivirus technology.
- Privacy protection.
- Minimal power usage.
- Gamer mode.
- One-click solution.
- Laptop activity watch.
- Webcam protection.
- Ransomware shield.
- Cloud-powered scanning.
This security suite can offer a big number of software solutions. Anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-rootkit, anti-spam and anti-theft features are packed into this one-stop software. Firewall, parental controls and protection for the web and emails are also included.
Just like its previous editions, this offering is very fast and uses less system resources than most of its competitors. It makes the most of heuristics and a cloud-based file reputation system to detect the most recent threads.
As well as its ‘legendary anti-virus technology’, its anti-theft feature is also very nifty. It allows you to track a stolen laptop on a map, view the thief via your laptop’s webcam (if it has one) and lock it with a password.
Overall, ESET Smart Security offers a complete package of security. It is straightforward to install, renew and upgrade and has minimal power usage features too. You are able to fine-tune your profile with as many as 150 detailed settings, while you can also let it carry out security tasks in the background
