Eset Security Review
For the price, ESET’s suite is one of the best. Its malware detection rate is close to perfection and the suite includes a variety of other features within a tiny footprint. The premium version adds parental controls, a secure web browser and password manager, while the Android package includes an anti-theft feature that will help you locate your missing phone. The security features for networks are excellent, with an option for a firewall and to scan your home devices for security issues.
One of the most notable is SysInspector. It’s an excellent tool that takes a snapshot of your system and highlights running processes, important Registry entries, as well as other information. It’s a bit intimidating for novices however if you’re used to more advanced task managers such as those found in the Sysinternals process explorer, you’ll feel at home.
Another fantastic feature is the possibility of scheduling scans on-demand. This is a great alternative to real-time security, which is quick and simple to implement. It’s just a shame that ESET does not include it in the same category as other scheduling tasks, and its UI makes it a bit more difficult to locate than their competitors.
The password manager is user-friendly and comes with numerous features. It’s a powerful form filler that is ideal for online banking. The password manager is only available in the premium version, and requires an ESET account, but it performs about as well as the other standalone solutions I’ve tested.
