ESET Announces Support for Windows 7
ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, has announced support for the Microsoft® Windows 7® operating system. The complete line of ESET products - ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 and ESET Smart Security 4 (home and business editions), ESET Remote Administrator 3, SysInspector and ESET Online Scanner now fully support Microsoft's new operating system.
According to Richard Marko, Chief Technology Officer at ESET, the changes that needed to be made in the products were minor and concerned mainly those features that are closely linked with the core of the operating system, namely ESET's Self-defense and Anti-stealth technologies. Self-defense is a function that prevents computer infiltrations from deactivating or negatively affecting the computer's security status. Anti-stealth is advanced technology that ESET has developed against rootkits.
In order to ensure full compatibility with Windows 7, ESET recommends that its customers download the newest installation packages for ESET Smart Security 4 and ESET NOD32 Antivirus, as well as ESET Remote Administrator 3 for business users. After downloading the above-mentioned products, it is recommended they be installed over existing copies.
ESET's industry-leading products, including the popular NOD32 Antivirus and ESET Smart Security, deliver a significant improvement over traditional solutions in the marketplace today. Powered by ThreatSense® technology, ESET's products combine speed, accuracy and minimal system impact. The advanced heuristics engine enables proactive detection of malware not covered by even the most frequently updated signature-based products. Unlike traditional approaches, ESET solutions use an emulated environment to decode and analyze executable code in real-time. By allowing malware to execute in a secure virtual machine, ESET is able to clearly differentiate between benign files and even the most sophisticated and cleverly-disguised malware.
ESET develops software solutions that deliver instant, comprehensive protection against evolving computer security threats. ESET pioneered and continues to lead the industry in proactive threat detection. ESET NOD32 Antivirus consistently achieves the highest accolades in all types of comparative testing, and is the heart of the virus and spyware detection in ESET Smart Security. ESET Smart Security is an integrated antivirus, antispyware, antispam and personal firewall solution that combines accuracy, speed and a small system footprint to create the most effective security solution in the industry. Both products have an extremely efficient code base that eliminates the unnecessarily large size found in some solutions. This means faster scanning that doesn't slow down computers or networks. Sold in more than 160 countries, ESET has global production headquarters in Bratislava, Slovakia, with distribution headquarters for the Americas and Asia-Pacific located in San Diego, California. ESET also has offices in Buenos Aires, Prague, and Krakow and is represented by an extensive global partner network. For more information, visit www.eset.com or call +1 (619) 876-5400.
