Consumers Digest Names ESET Smart Security "Best Buy"
Consumers Digest has named ESET Smart Security a "Best Buy" in its April 2008 issue. In an article entitled "Protecting Your Home Computer," ESET Smart Security finished first in the mid-priced category of security suites, scoring high in detection and speed.
"This security suite won't slow your PC anywhere near as much as its competitors, and caught 97.6 percent of viruses, which ranks high," states the article.
A Consumers Digest Best Buy is defined as a product that offers the most value for a given amount of money. It's not necessarily the least expensive product in its category, nor does it mean it is the best-known brand. According to Consumers Digest, a Consumers Digest Best Buy is a nationally available product, identified as one that merits special attention from consumers based on its combination of performance, ease-of-use, features, durability, warranty, efficiency, styling, and maintenance and servicing requirements.
"We're very pleased to be recognized by a publication with the reach and influence of Consumers Digest," said Anton Zajac, ESET CEO. "Because of our proactive detection and light system footprint, we've already amassed a substantial following among the tech set. With its antivirus, anti-spyware, anti-spam and firewall functionality, ESET Smart Security has more of a consumer focus. We are thrilled at the attention it has received."
Like ESET NOD32 Antivirus, ESET Smart Security is powered by ThreatSense® technology, an advanced heuristics engine that enables proactive detection of malware not covered by even the most frequently updated signature-based products. Unlike traditional solutions, ESET Smart Security decodes and analyzes executable code in real-time, using an emulated environment. By allowing malware to execute in a secure virtual world, ESET is able to clearly differentiate between benign files and even the most sophisticated and cleverly-disguised malware.
