ESET Smart Security

BANGALORE / MUMBAI, India – December 16, 2013: ESET, a global provider of security solutions for businesses and consumers, today announced the launch of the 7th generation of its flagship consumer products: ESET NOD32® Antivirus and ESET Smart Security®. Simultaneously, ESET is also offering an additional 6 months validity on ESET NOD32 (3 user, 1 year) and ESET Smart Security (1 user & 3 user, 1 year) till March 31, 2014, that is.


New technology features comprising Exploit Blocker, Advanced Memory Scanner, Vulnerability Shield followed by ESET Social Media Scanner provide a great balance of protection and usability without compromising system performance.

To try and deal with these threats, ESET has gone ahead to pilot extensive research and extended its core detection technology in version 7 products with three new features, which if zipped in, reads in the order, viz:

• Exploit Blocker, the brand new feature targets the very process entailing exploitation of vulnerable applications, thus seen this way around, it is generic and independent of the payload/malware that finally infects the machine. It delivers protection against new and undiscovered malware, acknowledged as what are called as “zero day threats.”

• Advanced Memory Scanner, steps in as a post-execution method, aiming to detect the outstanding malware sets which other technologies haven’t spotted. The Scanner from its quarter helps to protect against malware while all along actively trying to evade detection by employing obfuscation techniques.

• Vulnerability Shield, an extension of Personal Firewall in ESET Smart Security, it operates on the network level and protects against misuse of known vulnerabilities in network protocols.

Pankaj Jain, Director at ESET reportedly stated, “ESET new version 7 has been developed with unique features that collectively detects and blocks the threats including the undiscovered malwares. By retaining the same low system footprint, ESET offers even greater protection. The users can protect their systems for long term with our additional 6 months validity offering on purchase of ESET NOD32 and ESET Smart Security.”

ESET Research and Development teams have paid close attention not only to detection, but also to malware cleaning.  Added to these, the Cleaner Module has been improved specifically to address rootkits removal and a Specialized Cleaner helps with the most resistant malware. ESET has also come up with the pack of improved ESET Social Media Scanner (version 2) to boost their security network.
