ESET releases ESET SysInspector

ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, today announced the release of SysInspector, a “deep dive” diagnostic tool. This comprehensive utility examines various operating system elements, including running processes, registry content, startup items and network connections to identify malware and other malicious content. With ESET SysInspector, security personnel, network administrators, malware researchers and support engineers are able to quickly and effectively diagnose computer and network related problems caused by malware.

ESET SysInspector is powered by an advanced heuristics engine that enables proactive detection of malware not covered by even the most frequently updated signature-based products. As a result, SysInspector runs faster than competitive system diagnostic tools and detects more malware and other problems, even assigning a risk level to those problems.

“Competitive diagnostic tools include some of SysInspector’s functionality, but we believe that our solution provides the most comprehensive view of a systems’ environment,” said Jakub Debski, lead developer, ESET. “SysInspector provides users with an unprecedented snapshot of what’s happening on their systems. To achieve this level of granularity, you would traditionally have to run a number of separate utilities. On top of that, SysInspector runs a risk assessment, something simply not found in other programs.”
