ESET Smart Security Public Beta 1b

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.

What's new

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.


This is BETA software!, please use caution when installing it on your system!

im so looking forward to the new stand alone av product....with the new interface and layout...it will be my choice over kaspersky 7.0 purely because 7.0 kinda when bloatware with the new interface and resource hungry engine.

Does this have vista 64 bit support?

ESET Smart Security Public Beta 1b only runs on 32-bit (x86) versions of Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Vista. Antispam only works with Microsoft Outlook. Support for other operating systems, processor architectures and mail clients will be added in future test releases.

This has been in beta for quite some time, unfortunately I don't think I cant wait 6 months for new AV ... Kaspersky 7 here I come ....

i am also looking forward to when they officaly release it,nod32 is great picks up stuff and light on resources,so far the early releases appear to have been good so far but still need alot of improvement.

NOD32 2.7 is able to do that, yes. But I have this beta installed, and there is still no context menu entry for scanning files.

Any idea when there will be released as Final as my AV licences are due this month I'd like to use the SS instead because its pretty cool and works like AV in terms of resources, will there be a beta 2 and RC

On the Eset forums it says "Beta 2 is being developed and will be available shortly. It will contain much more improvements than beta 1b."
