ESET Security Review

ESET provides a variety of plans available for Windows, macOS, Android and Linux. They offer a free plan that’s ideal for basic security, and the more expensive plans come with features like parental controls and password management and encryption of data. The most expensive package includes gaming mode that blocks unauthorized access to the hardware of your computer while you are playing.

The program doesn’t take too long to install and the setup is simple. It doesn’t bludgeon your system with bloatware neither. There are a few additional settings to fiddle with however, the majority of tools and features are clearly labeled on the interface’s left sidebar.

A new feature called Connected Home Monitor is an efficient visual representation of your network, as well as the devices connected to it. You can also use it to scan for vulnerabilities, such as open ports and weak router passwords.

Another feature that stands out is a pop-up which is displayed every time you insert an USB storage device. You can decide to scan the drive right away or have the program perform the scan automatically. in the event that you do not want to run a full scan you can still perform an on-demand check.

Advanced users will appreciate the ability to tweak the way and what the suite scans. You can set the number of folders, files as well as specific items the program will check. You can even define the depth to which the program will scan archives, if you prefer to omit certain kinds of files from the initial scan.
