While searching for the best antivirus software applications, we decided to test the newest security applications from ESET. ESET as a company always keeps up with the newest trends and reveals new and reliable applications. That is the case with their newest products that came out on the market this year.

For non-business users they have announced two new applications. The first one is called ESET Smart Security 6, and is actually all in one application that contains features like Location tracking, Anti-theft diagnostics, Laptop activity watching, Personal firewall, Out-of-home network, Anti phishing, Anti spyware, Antivirus, Parental control, and many more. All of these features come for free with a single user license. This fact really surprised us a lot. As we were installing the software, we must say that is the easiest application to install on any computer and of course any platform. It works smoothly on any OS that is currently used. With the new Location tracking and Laptop activity features, users can mark the device, track it on a map and watch the thieves via the built-in camera. With the Personal firewall feature your content is kept secure from unauthorized access. Anti-phishing and Antispam features protect your sensitive information like usernames, passwords, bank accounts, and filter your email inbox. The Antivirus and Antispyware are the features that are of biggest concern. We tested these features thoroughly and concluded that ESET found all the threats and cleaned the system for a very quick period. It provides protection from online and offline threats and doesn’t allow malware to spread on other users.


ESET advises all users to always check for new updates, because they always define new protection parameters, according to the newest viruses that appear.

ESET NOD32 Antivirus 6 is the other product that was released on the market this year. This powerful antivirus software application comes fully equipped with features like Antivirus, Antispyware, Anti-Phishing, Cloud-Powered scanning, Scan While Downloading Files Removable Media Control, and Social Media Scanner. The simple user interface where you can define your protection parameters is presented on Figure 2. On the user interface you can also check for new updates and perform scans of the overall system or just part of the system. ESET made a tremendous advance in antivirus protection because of the fact that in the newest edition they implemented HIPS (Host-based Intrusion Prevention System) which gives the user option to specify rules for active processes and system registry. It is also the only antivirus application that checks the profile of the user on social networks like Facebook, and warns the user in case there is any harmful content on the profile or in the messages inbox. Because of all these useful features, we would definitely recommend ESET NOD32 Antivirus 6 to everyone.
