  • Solid protection for endpoints
  • Relatively lightweight scanning engine
  • Frequent definition updates
  • Powerful configuration and control interface
  • Agent installation is as easy as can be
  • The agent installer can also be setup to remove other antivirus software as it installs
  • The configuration control panel almost has too many options available for you to set in my opinion.
  • In my opinion, the firewall product is a bit on the aggressive side, sometimes blocking apps you want to have access to. And in my experience, it can be hard to figure out why it is being blocked.
  • In my opinion, it can be hard to figure out what policy is taking preference for a troublesome setting.

  • Quite easy to set up, instructions were very clear.
  • Works even after factory resetting the machine. Some antivirus software wouldn't activate once the factory reset.
  • Does not hog up memory or resources.
  • License bondage is a hassle, you need to get the product key from some username and password first. But once bound, it is seamless.
  • Sometimes it is blocking some connections that were legitimate. I had to add to exclusions.

  • First of all, it is very light.
  • High detection despite the fact that it is lightweight.
  • The management screen that comes standard with the licensed version is easy to view and manage.
  • If the system administrator has functions such as pop-up notification and alert mail transmission, I believe that countermeasures can be taken faster
  • It often gets in the way of the network system.
  • Communication between PCs under the same network may be hindered, which may be an obstacle to verification.

  • Security situation of servers and desktops

  • Eset Endpoint Antivirus is a decent antivirus that expends scarcely any framework assets and is refreshed day by day.
  • Notwithstanding antivirus assurance, it has firewall security and makes warnings if the working framework should be updated to alleviate any weakness.
  • Performs sweeps to the gear and outside gadgets just by embedding them, for example, USB recollections, external hard drives, cell phones, and so on. It permits record insurance and device control.
  • It suddenly blocks useful web sites, so this application blocking must be improved.
  • It takes long time to update the threat database and it must be improved.
  • When this product is installed on older PCs, PC performance is affected. This must be optimised by the Eset development team.

  • Eset has a powerful ransomware protection mechanism.
  • Easy to install using all-in-one installer and easy to manage endpoints.
  • It also works in the background without any notifications and makes no trouble for my work.
  • Scanning time should be reduced.
  • Need more features like Vulnerability scan, Protected folders.

  • Set-up and deployment is easy in almost any environment.
  • The built-in tool to collect detailed information about systems is invaluable.

  • Ease of install with a complete AIO package (agent and AV-sec installer).
  • It has caught more tracking cookies & possible viruses that most enterprise level AV suites on the market.
  • It's like a secondary firewall for PCs.
  • I would add more heuristic AV protection.
  • Keeping the software suite lets you not utilize as many resources as most of your competitors.
  • The ERAC (ESET Remote Access Console) could use a little make-over. I would change the font and color scheme to make it more readable.
