ESET Smart Security is a fully integrated security solution and includes antivirus, anti-spyware, a personal firewall and antispam. While some competitive solutions purport to have similar functionality, ESET has developed a unique approach that provides true and full integration of point security solutions. The key advantage of this approach is that individual protection modules are able to communicate together seamlessly, to create unparalleled synergy to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of protection. Moreover, the integrated architecture guarantees optimal utilization of system resources, so ESET Smart Security continues ESET's well know reputation for providing rock solid security in a small footprint that will not slow down an individual's computer.
ESET Smart Security is a milestone in the field of computer protection against infiltrations and attacks. The program offers more than just a sum of its parts – it is synergy that matters most. If all components are used simultaneously, the effectiveness of the whole program is multiplied. ESET Smart Security unifies all its functions to create a complex security solution.
ESET Smart Security is based on three basic pillars:
ESET NOD32 Antivirus + Antispyware
This component is in fact an improved version of the award-winning scanning engine of NOD32 Antivirus v2.7.
ESET Personal Firewall
Firewall monitors all traffic between a protected computer and other computers in the local network and in the Internet.
ESET Anti Spam
ESET Anti Spam serves to filter unsolicited email, which makes your work with email more effective.
