Eset launches latest antivirus software
Dubai, September 15, 2011
Eset Middle East, one of the leaders in proactive protection against cyber-threats, has announced the launch of its flagship products Eset Smart Security 5 and Eset NOD32 Antivirus 5.
The latest generation of the company’s home user products offers more advanced detection technology and multi-layered security features.
Richard Marko, CEO, Eset said: “Even before its release, testing versions of the fifth generation of our flagship security solutions have been downloaded more than four million times. After thorough testing and months of development, we present our customers with the new Eset NOD32 Antivirus 5 and Eset Smart Security 5 products.”
“With the new technologies we are incorporating into the product like Eset Live Grid and our Advanced Hips, we will be providing an even more comprehensive protection than ever before. At the moment we are already working on developing future generations of our security solutions”, he said.
Eset Smart Security 5 and Eset NOD32 Antivirus 5 offers various new and improved features including Eset Live Grid, a cloud-based reputation and protection technology, new removable media control, with more granular control of external devices, parental control (Eset Smart Security 5 only), advanced Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (Hips) and Gamer Mode, the company said.
ThreatSence.Net technology has now been renamed Eset Live Grid and offers optimisation of scanning based on the whitelisting of safe files. Cloud-based reputation is yet another method used by the latest generation of Eset products to determine whether a particular object is secure or not.
The Removable Media Control feature automatically prompts the user to scan the content of all flash drives (USB, SD), firewire, CDs and DVDs, so that specific threats can be blocked from trying to get through to the system through the media devices.
Users can block/allow removable media, based on the type of media, manufacturer, size and other attributes. In addition, permissions can be set to blocked, read-only or read/write access. They can be set either for a specific user or groups of users.
Parental Control allows sites that may contain potentially offensive material with pre-defined website categories to be blocked.
Hips offers another layer of security and allows tech savvy users to customise the behavior of the whole system and each part. User can define rules or system registry, processes, applications and files.
The Gamer Mode switches to silent mode and disables pop ups to conserve system resources and enhance the gaming experience. – TradeArabia News Service
