ESET Security Review

ESET offers a great firewall engine and anti-malware software. It also includes a password manager that comes with forms, browser protection and a password manager. Its parental controls security, secure browser, and anti-theft tools are all good however they aren’t outstanding. It does not include a VPN or microphone protection, but it does offer remote screen recording or camera access to view what a thief has been doing on your mobile or laptop.

The application is designed with an intuitive interface that beginners can easily grasp and use, but it also provides comprehensive information and features that are suitable for power users. The company also offers excellent support, which can be accessed via their website or directly from the client via a „support” tab located right at the bottom of the application.

We really liked the fact that ESET Internet Security shows you how it’s protecting your PC by providing a status bar at the top of the screen and also gives you detailed security information. The software will notify you on the desktop, right next to the system tray, when something significant happens to your computer.

The antiphishing tools of the antivirus were overly vigilant and blocked a variety of websites I was confident about but were not listed on PhishTank. Additionally when we plugged in into a USB storage device into our laptop the program automatically scans it, which was a bit annoying since many other programs ask for permission to do this.
