I have been an admirer of ESET Nod32 for quite a long time. I have been using it in the office as well as home. ESET security products are very good and reliable. Today ESET has released the new versions of their Antivirus and Smart Security suite. These software are still in beta so if you want to test the new capabilities of ESET products, you may do it by downloading using the links at the end of this article.
ESET Smart Security 8 comes with antivirus, antispyware, firewall, anti-rootkit and antispam capabilities to protect your system from any kind of malware or hacking threat. One good thing about Smart Security is that it conserves resources and improves computer speed under normal working conditions.
ESET NOD32 Antivirus scores 83 percent in AV-Test’s Usability tests for Windows 7. Some key benefits of the ESET smart security 8 and ESET Nod32 Antivirus include the following:
Keeps the user safe from viruses, spyware, trojans, hackers and other threats.
Scans the Internet and email traffic before it reaches your browser or email client. In this way, it will protect you from unwanted malware from the Internet seamlessly.
Self defence prevents malware from harming the antivirus or security suite itself. This helps in keeping your computer safe at all times.
Small signature updates keep the antivirus updated and does not throttle your Internet bandwidth.
Free technical support is available via the web forum, email and phone.
Built on v7, the new version extends protection capabilities of Exploit blocker to protect users from 0-day Java exploits. The firewall now includes Botnet protection to detect and block communication of bots if running on computer (ESET Smart Security only).
