Written in highly optimized code, ESET solutions are recognized as the most effective antimalware scanners in the industry. Having pioneered proactive protection, ESET effectively combines several detection methods to neutralize a broad range of malware, including emerging variants.

In addition to the powerful ESET ThreatSense® scanning engine, which detects and eliminates new threats before they can do any harm to your system, ESET solutions also feature:


Virus Signatures - Common Protection, Generic Signatures - Future mutations, Code Analysis - Static analysis, Emulation - Advanced detection

Virus Signatures – ESET technology significantly reduces the scanning time needed to identify any particular form of malware. Timely and automatic updates keep safe from the latest threats.

Code Analysis – ESET solutions enhance detection by analyzing files for any resemblance to known malicious code samples.

Generic Signatures – ESET analysts develop generic signatures of malicious code to identify a broad range of malware – including variants – using one sample instead of hundreds of individual samples.

Emulation – Suspect code is monitored and quarantined to an isolated environment. Based on the code’s behavior, ThreatSense® then determines whether the given sample poses a threat and flags or eliminates the harmful applications before it can cause any damage.
