Overall Satisfaction with Eset Smart Security

I use ESET Security to safeguard my Apple iMac for all of my business and personal needs. It finds everything and is very simple to use. I have tried everything. ESET is the best.
  • Automatic Updating upon Startup or Wake
  • Finds all threats and keeps users informed
  • Ease of Use
  • It found severe Trojans that would have destroyed my computer.
  • It found Trojans in Spam mail on the backup file!
  • It detects attempts to access files.
  • It is always up to date!
ESET is the only comprehensive and easy to use Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware and Online Threat Protection software for all operating systems.
It is well suited for automation of updating and detection of online threats. I cannot think of a scenario where it is less appropriate.

1 - I perform all business functions
1 - ESET requires no support. It works automatically and is easy for anyone to use.
  • Anti-Virus
  • Anti-Malware
  • Online Threat Monitoring

  • I will use ESET to protect my Apple devices from Microsoft Operating Systems
It has been flawless for 2 years

Evaluating Eset Smart Security and Competitors

Yes - Kaspersky, Microsoft Security products, Symantec and Malwarebytes. None of these did everything and all of them caused more problems than they solved.
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Product Reputation
It came highly recommended from a security expert and it covers all operating systems and real time online Threat detection.
I would have started with Apple devices and ESET and saved years of agony and lost work.

Eset Smart Security Implementation

Do the full scan at the beginning and be prepared to wait until it is done. It will find things you did not know were there. You can leave on the Apple firewall as well as the ESET firewall. There have been no conflicts. Remember to remove emails from being backed up, so you do not have spam on your backup! This was the mistake I made.
No - Download from the ESET website. Open and install. Input code and register. That's it.
Change management was minimal - It was so simple, the only change was... it took very little time.
  • It found a bunch of threats which is a good thing
  • It is necessary to input the code and register, but once done, it's done.
  • It takes time for the first full scan of the computer. More than 24 hours as it checks everything!
