ESET, global provider of security solutions for businesses and consumers, today announced the launch of the 7th generation of its flagship consumer products: ESET NOD32® Antivirus and ESET Smart Security®. ESET is also offering additional 6 months validity on ESET NOD32 (3 user, 1 year) and ESET Smart Security (1 user & 3 user, 1 year) till March 31, 2014.
New technology features, including Exploit Blocker, Advanced Memory Scanner, Vulnerability Shield and ESET Social Media Scanner provide a great balance of protection and usability without compromising system performance.
To deal with these threats, ESET has conducted extensive research and extended its core detection technology in version 7 products with three new features:
Exploit Blocker, the brand new feature targets the very process of exploitation of vulnerable applications, thus it is generic and independent of the payload/malware that finally infects the machine. It provides protection against new and undiscovered malware, also known as zero day threats.
Advanced Memory Scanner, steps in as a post-execution method, aiming to detect the outstanding malware sets that other technologies haven’t spotted. The Scanner helps to protect against malware actively trying to evade detection by employing obfuscation techniques.
Vulnerability Shield, an extension of Personal Firewall in ESET Smart Security, it operates on the network level and protects against misuse of known vulnerabilities in network protocols.
Pankaj Jain, Director at ESET said, “ESET new version 7 has been developed with unique features that collectively detects and blocks the threats including the undiscovered malwares. By retaining the same low system footprint, ESET offers even greater protection. The users can protect their systems for long term with our additional 6 months validity offering on purchase of ESET NOD32 and ESET Smart Security.”
ESET Research and Development teams have paid close attention not only to detection, but also to malware cleaning. The Cleaner Module has been improved specifically to address rootkits removal and a Specialized Cleaner has been added to help with the most resistant malware. ESET has also come up with the pack of improved ESET Social Media Scanner (version 2) to boost their security network.
