ESET Security Review

ESET offers a reliable anti-malware engine, useful firewall settings A password manager with form filling capabilities and browser protection and a number of good security tools for networks. Its parental controls, secure browser and anti-theft tools are all good but not exceptional. It does not offer a VPN or microphone protection, however it does offer remote screen recording or camera access to see what a thief has been doing on your smartphone or laptop.

The app is designed with an intuitive interface that novices can easily grasp, but also has specific information and features designed for advanced users. The company offers excellent customer service, which is available on their website or from the client directly via the "support" button at the bottom of every app.

We really liked the fact that ESET Internet Security shows you how it's protecting your computer by displaying a status bar at the top of the window and also gives you how to install amd drivers detailed security information. If something is happening that is significant on your computer or must take action, the program displays clear and concise notifications on the desktop in the tray that is in the system.

However the anti-phishing tools of the antivirus were a bit too vigilant and blocked quite many websites that aren't listed on PhishTank which I am confident in. Also that when we plug into a USB storage device into our laptop the program automatically scans it, which was a bit irritating as most other programs simply ask you for permission to do so.
