Uniquely designed for Linux
No Operating System is completely safe. Even though the Linux platform may not have as many threats as other platforms and is targeted directly, it can still act as a malware carrier and cause serious damage to Windows-based systems in the network. ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 is designed to be smart. Powered by the advanced ThreatSense® scanning engine, ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 features proactive protection, an intuitive user interface, and solutions that run seamlessly in the background.
Technology behind it
Utilizing advanced heuristic techniques, ThreatSense® provides industry-leading protection against known and yet unknown threats. The sophisticated detection method similar to that of DNA profiling is applied to detect and eliminate virus mutations of already existing infiltrations across all platforms.
Informative Graphs and Statistics – Examine statistics and graphs that measure the performance of the antivirus, anti-spyware and real-time protection modules. These easily accessibly metrics include disk operations (writing to or reading from the disk) and virus statistics.
Application Settings Control – Only members of the privileged users group — set by the administrator — can modify all program settings. This feature prevents unintentional or unauthorized changes to settings that can disable or degrade security of your computer.
