Overall Satisfaction with ESET Endpoint Security

Our lab uses ESET Endpoint Security on all workstations and servers. We switched to this product about 15 years ago after numerous failures of our university's enterprise anti-virus solution (McAfee). We like the robustness of the product- especially the ability to tune the firewall.
  • It is easy to create exceptions in the firewall.
  • Great for creating remembered settings for which sites are allowed to send what information when visited.
  • Low overhead on the operating system unlike application such as Symantec.
  • The interface is easy to use.
  • Make license management a bit easier - a single login accessible through ESET's front page would be helpful.
  • We have not had an infection or down time because of a virus since installing ESET.
Symantec is slow and has tremendous overhead on the hardware. McAfee failed multiple times. We don't trust the Russian solutions.
ESET is great for academic computing environments as it handles flaky freshmen trying to access suspect web sites as easily as it puts a stop to the transfer of worms or some types of phishing attempts.
