Detecting threats the others miss
As leaders in the field of proactive threat protection, we develop software that reacts immediately to new and emerging threats. In short, we protect users in real time.
We ensure superior protection by using two methods of detection (comparing known virus signatures plus using heuristics to anticipate new ones) instead of one. That’s how our products detect and destroy threats that others miss.
Built to run unnoticed in the background, ESET security solutions deliver ultra-fast scanning with an extremely low system footprint. That means you’ll never have to compromise fast performance for effective protection again.
ESET Threat Center
ESET LiveGrid®, used in all our antivirus products, protects you 24/7 by predicting trouble before it happens. Using our unique ThreatSense.net® advanced early warning system, ESET LiveGrid collects data submitted by ESET users worldwide and sends it to our malware research labs for analysis.
ThreatSense® is the anti-threat engine that powers all ESET products and results in fast reactions to emerging threats.
Sample submissions from customers, distributors and partners are an important source of new malware. Other sources of samples include sample exchange or active “honey pots” (computer systems specifically set up to invite attacks and provide info on how systems are attacked and where they are vulnerable).
Part of ESET’s online Threat Center, the Threat Encyclopedia features an A-Z guide of selected viruses, spyware, and other threats, sorted alphabetically. Updated frequently, it includes definitions of hundreds of viruses and how they behave.
