Eset beefs up consumer security products


Security vendor Eset has updated its consumer products Eset Nod32 Antivirus, Eset Internet Security, and Eset Smart Security Premium with improved protection and new features.

A key feature of Eset Smart Security Premium is LiveGuard, which provides an additional layer of protection against novel threats.

"In the hybrid working environment managing devices has become more complicated, with the line between home devices and office devices being blurred," said Eset Australia country manager Kelly Johnson.

"Eset is detecting around 300,000 new, unseen malware worldwide every day and our research shows that employees working remotely are being actively targeted by threat actors looking for a way into business networks via poorly secured endpoints.

"LiveGuard brings a vital extra layer of protection to home users – previously only available in our business-grade products – against new types of threats. It shields the user from unknown malware before its code executes by using a cloud-based sandbox to analyse and determine if a suspicious file is malicious."

Users of Eset's consumer products now gain access to the Eset Home mobile app and web portal to manage the security of all their Windows and Android devices via one interface. That includes adding, managing and sharing licenses with family and friends via the app, and managing the anti-theft, parental control and password manager features via the web portal.

The banking and payment protection feature now provides extra security for customers accessing web-based cryptocurrency wallets, and the password manager has been redesigned and among other changes now supports KeePass and Microsoft Authenticator.

Other improvements can be found in the ransomware shield (enhanced behaviour-based detection techniques), and exploit blocker covers additional malicious techniques.

A beta version of Eset NOD32 Antivirus for Arm64 is now available.

"The updated product suite, including our new LiveGuard feature and the Eset Home platform, puts users firmly in control of their home cybersecurity needs and instils them with the confidence needed to manage multiple devices on the go," added Johnson.

"With both the work environment and the threat landscape constantly evolving, it is vital to us that our consumer users and remote workers are protected with cutting-edge solutions that are easily accessible and best in class in terms of user experience."

30-day free trials of Smart Security Premium, Internet Security and Nod32 Antivirus are available.
