NOD32 is the only paid antivirus software that is not a memory hogger. That's all that is important. Why would I install software on my PC that hogs up all my memory? And the free ones are full of ads, and popups trying to trick you into getting their paid plans. They were annoying, and thus I prefer NOD32.

eSetEndpoint Antivirus is hands down the best anti-viral application I have come across. This was recommended to me to help cut back on the amount of resources being used on the computer when the antivirus program is running.

Eset Versus the Virus

I prefer Eset [Endpoint Antivirus] because it tends to not consume resources on devices like Kaspersky. I have also had better success with Eset [Endpoint Antivirus] in a domain environment than I have with Kaspersky.

We reviewed quite a few solutions when we first started the process of finding a new antivirus/protection suite. There were some other very good candidates such as Kaspersky Endpoint Security, Symantec Advanced Threat Protection, and McAfee Endpoint Security. However as the process unfolded and we viewed demos, looked at raw numbers, features, etc, we found that the sweet spot was Eset Endpoint Antivirus. Between the features, detection rate, scoring, reliability, support and cost, Eset won out for us.

They all offer similar benefits, such as being free of viruses and other types of infections, but when tested and evaluated against Eset Endpoint Antivirus, they all have some weakness--that is, some are very good but consume most of the computer resources, in others the updates are constant and there are periods where you can be exposed, or instead their prices are higher for what they offer. That is why Eset Endpoint Antivirus has the advantage of being the best option in terms of economy, performance, and efficiency.

  • Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)
It was pre-existing when I came to this company so ESET is dug in deep and removing it would be a process. Defender was nice and is a solution I wouldn't mind moving to. My biggest concern is web protection due to the amount of password compromise request emails the user base gets so have a system that is big on web protection is a must.

While the detection rate may not be as great as McAfee, Eset Endpoint Antivirus has offered a more affordable pricing model. Active protection also has less of a performance impact on workstations when compared to McAfee, making it a generally leaner product overall. It was also easier to deploy and manage.

For us we thought ESET was stronger that Norton. More well rounded in its all its features for business. Price point was also a big factor and no treats or issues while using this software in the past 7 years.

We have tried the Norton, and Avast, Neither compare to ESET as far as the capability to maintain virus signature databases, also the ransomware protection is great. All aspects of this product are beneficial to whom ever purchases this for their protection. I have been extremely satified with its performance and usability.

Cost is reasonably low and feature-wise it gives all the same capabilities of similar products so we chose Eset as our organization's antivirus solution.

When considering the price, price of Eset is reasonable. Also, it has higher threat detection ratio than other products. Another thing is Eset Endpoint Antivirus does not consume high system resources.

The overall experience of support and deployment was better with ESET. Any questions we ran into were answered by their support team quickly and accurately. The tools and reporting made our IT department happy by allowing us to put out higher-level reports for upper management regularly. Being able to customize our individual scheduling by department made life easier as well. The ROI for ESET was in our opinion a better value.

ESET does not come with the same geopolitical baggage that Kaspersky Labs' products do. ESET has a well-established US presence, with headquarters in Southern California, with many technical and sales representatives just a phone call away. Doing business with ESET has always been straightforward and pleasant, and they have always worked to maximize the value of bulk licensing buys.

We really like the lightness of ESET, this really is a differential in your favor, the way it operates quietly in the background even running a scan was something that interested us, nothing worse than an antivirus locking everything like a scan and still end up issuing scandalous false detections, in the end the choice was made by ESET much because of this differential.

ESET is the product we chose to replace Symantec Endpoint Protection. ESET is a better product at a lower price point and does not slow down client workstations like Symantec does. Symantec uninstalls from clients were sometimes very difficult and were not clean uninstalls. Sometimes you had to use an uninstall program to clean things up.

Despite being the current solution, that will replace ESET, I noticed that the centralized updates are on a desktop, for example. Easy to set up, but if the desktop goes down, everyone downloads from the internet. Also, the web interface is better, but I think that ESET has more options, even being slower.

ESET can't be beat

I'm a huge fan of ESET, the other companies seem to have either gone off the deep end by adding advertisements or they add too much and slow down the whole program, which slows down the whole PC. I haven't heard others with the same reputation as ESET either, I know of many people who prefer ESET over others as well.
