Features and Services
Smarter Scanner - Malware and threats don't always enter your business computers in ways you expect. ESET Smart Security inspects SSL-encrypted communication channels like HTTPS and POP3S and intelligently scans compressed files to find hidden threats other products miss. Proactive protection begins at the earliest point in system startup to ensure your computer is always secure.
Clean and Safe Email - Whether your business uses Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Mozilla Thunderbird 3*, Opera 10*, Windows Live Mail, Windows Mail, or other POP3/IMAP mail clients, ESET Smart Security will keep your email free of viruses and other threats.
Time-saving Firewall - New Learning Mode saves time by automatically creating firewall rules by observing how end users use the network, while offering advanced firewall modes for power users. Pair customized firewall profiles with trusted network zones and have appropriate firewall rules applied automatically based on detected network presence.*
Trusted Zone Authentication - Identify trusted network zones by network configurations (a configurable combination of host/DNS/DHCP server IP address, wireless SSID, connection profile, etc) or securely authenticate into a network using ESET Authentication Server.*
Upgraded Antispam - ESET Smart Security now takes care of annoying spam with a smaller, faster, and even more effective spam filter.
Removable Media Security - Threats can enter your PC from removable media such as USB thumb drives. For self-running media, ESET Smart Security scans autorun.inf and associated files when the medium is inserted, in addition to scanning any file on any removable device when it is accessed, or during a full-scan of the media. Power users can adjust ESET Smart Security to perform additional levels of scanning on removable media.
System Tools - ESET SysInspector and ESET SysRescue simplify diagnosing and cleaning of infected systems by allowing deep scans of system processes to find hidden threats, and creating bootable rescue CD/DVD or USB drives to help you repair an infected computer.
Self Defense - ESET Smart Security has built-in technology to prevent malicious software from corrupting or disabling it, so you can rest assured your system is always protected.

Protection from the Unknown - Award-winning ThreatSense® technology uses multiple layers of threat detection to deliver the most effective protection possible against new attacks. And ThreatSense is smart; it raises far fewer annoying "false alarms" than any other products that use heuristics.
Built for Speed - ESET Smart Security is lightning fast, so fast you won't even notice it's there. Even disk-intensive operations like performing a "full disk scan" run smoothly in the background without affecting end user productivity.
Easy on Your System - ESET Smart Security is "lean and mean," typically using just 45 MB of memory, a fraction of what other products consume. Because it's fast and "light," upgrading your existing antivirus protection to ESET Smart Security can literally be like buying a new computer. And laptop users can rejoice in the new automatic energy-sipping battery mode.
Finds Malware Other AV Companies Missed - Typically when a new copy of ESET Smart Security replaces another antivirus product on a computer the end user finds viruses or malware resident on the machine that were undetected by their previous antivirus product.
