Kaspersky Security Cloud vs ESET Internet Security

Question

kiddingguy    47

My license for ESET is about to expire. I do like to product and suite. I have to renew.

However, I do see that Kaspersky is offering a competitive proposition; Security Cloud.

 

Which suite is better in protection? Or doesn't it really make a difference and are they both as good.

Hello,

 

My understanding (and you should absolutely, definitely verify this) is that ESET allows you to renew for 30 days after your license expires with the renewal discount.  So, that should give you enough time to try a trial version of Kaspersky's offering and see if it is a better choice for you.  Here's a HOWTO I wrote a few months ago in the Spiceworks (IT community) forum about how to evaluate anti-malware (aka anti-virus) software:  https://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/155722-evaluate-antivirus-software.  It may be a little bit more geared towards business users than consumers, but you may still find it of value as well.

 

Regards,

Aryeh Goretsky

The Bottom Line on Kaspersky vs ESET

Now that we have compared the different aspects of ESET Smart Security 9.0 and Kaspersky Internet Security in a broader manner, we can make the decisions about the selection. Judging by the pricing, Kaspersky is far more affordable than ESET counterparts. At the same time, Kaspersky manages to include many features for advanced protection, such as parental controls and web-based protection. Also, we found that the three-product section is easier for the selection. Altogether, considering the fact that you want to have standard-level protection at the lowest price, you should go for Kaspersky Antivirus.

I tried ESET in the past but now I am on Kaspersky. It has simplicity but also very advanced features if you want to use them. It has extensive features for privacy and Web protection that others don't have so you can even get rid of ad blockers. I even get a license for my Android phone

ESET is not what it used to be. Detection rates went dramatically down after  V3 or V4, few of my former associates got burned by it. Not recommended at all.
