Review: ESET Smart Security

ESET Smart Security

Highly secured and reliable protection for your sensitive infrastructure and data

The importance of antivirus is not unknown to the world anymore. With the amount of cyber-crimes rising over the period of years, one is never sure of data security. We live in the world where it is difficult to imagine our lives without internet. Basically, our lives revolve around world wide web (www). The laptop, desktop or mobile users are always at a high risk of virus or malware attack.  The amount of time people spends on internet is immense, therefore being exposed to the world of spams, virus and malwares. And most of the users are unaware of certain links which may be a spam. So, it becomes very important that every individual protects its laptop, desktop or mobile by an antivirus which is able to detect majority of the viruses and malwares and protects the system from any kind of threats.  Also, it becomes necessary to update your antivirus on a regular basis.

We spend a lot on unnecessary things but when it comes to securing your data or system, people tend to neglect it. It’s very important to choose the right antivirus from a pool of choices for your system.

I have been experimenting with different brands for my system, like: Quick heal security, Norton, AVG, Avast, Kaspersky and few more. Few months back I came across ESET smart security and as usual I did my part of reading on Google and their official website about what the product has to offer me. I was very much convinced and decided to go ahead with ESET smart security.

It has been 3 months now and I am very much satisfied by the security it has been providing for my system. It doesn’t allow you to visit a website if it thinks it can be vulnerable to your system, which irritates me sometime but at the end of the day it is protecting my system. ESET provides you various tools to keep your system secured from virus or malware threats. Below is a screenshot of ESET tools on my system:

One of the features provided by ESET is Anti-theft. This feature locates and retrieves your missing device. It increases your chances of getting your device back if it is lost or stolen. It automatically monitors the system, lets you view webcam photos, screen captures, and more.

How does ESET Anti-theft works?

Should you part with your device, ESET Anti-Theft helps to track and locate it. Mark your device as missing and see its position displayed on the map.  

Monitor foreign activity:

If you mark your device as missing, automatic monitoring is activated, allowing you to view webcam photos and screen captures. All the while, your user accounts stay protected.

Tracks device location:

Aided by the networks in range, ESET Anti-Theft locates your device's position on the map to help you retrieve it.

Send a message to the finder:

Want to get in touch with the finder? Send a one-way message that appears on the screen of your device. You can even add a webcam photo of the finder(s) if you managed to snap one.

ESET Social Media Scanner:

Another brilliant feature is ESET Social Media Scanner. This free feature keeps you secure on social media. On Facebook, it protects you and your friends' wall, newsfeed and timeline. How often have you come across an app that protects not only your Facebook account but also your friends. On Twitter, it protects your profile and those you are following.

What makes ESET a reliable and trusted brand?

I have been using ESET for more than 3 months now and I am pretty satisfied by its performance. Earlier, using other brands I have seen my system getting slow or unable to delete or repair many viruses on external hard drives or other devices. But till date I haven’t come across a situation where in the scan process it detects a virus and it says- cannot delete or repair this file. Even comparing to other brands, this is way faster in scanning the entire data in your system.  All in all a great product which ensures safety of your laptops, desktops or mobile devices with added features which is like a cherry on a cake.

Verdict: Highly recommended.
