ESET Smart Security 5 Earns Coveted Parent Tested Parent Approved Seal of Approval
ESET today announced that ESET Smart Security 5 has been awarded the Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA) Winner's Seal of Approval. PTPA Media has North America's largest volunteer parent testing community, with over 40,000 members. Consumers looking for high-quality products and services can rest assured that when they see the PTPA Winner's Seal, it's evidence of product excellence as evaluated by unbiased parent consumers.
ESET Smart Security 5 was among many entries from across North America competing to earn the PTPA™ Seal. Because independent parent volunteers evaluate these products in their own homes, PTPA winners are chosen based on merit and consumer experience – not on commercial considerations.
"While numerous products claim to be built with families in mind, only a few select products earn the trusted PTPA Seal of Approval, and we are honored to receive such recognition," said Andrew Lee, CEO of ESET North America. "Receiving the PTPA Seal of Approval is a further testament of ESET's commitment to providing consumers with a security solution that combines proactive software protection with an interactive education component. By integrating state-of-the-art internet security with effective and easy to use training, we are helping ESET customers become their own best-defense."
In September, ESET released the latest generation of its flagship products, ESET Smart Security 5 and ESET NOD32 Antivirus 5, which offer a number of new and improved features, including: parental controls, ESET Live Grid featuring cloud-enhanced whitelisting, removable media management, advanced Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) and a gamer mode. Additionally, all ESET products include a one-of-a-kind interactive cybersecurity training that is designed to provide users with self-paced online education around protecting their computer, themselves and their family. Its contents are regularly refreshed to include tips on how to stay safe from the latest online threats.
ESET has also released the ESET Family Security Pack, a single family subscription for securing multiple devices, providing protection with a unified security package. The ESET Family Security Pack provides consumers with a single universal license to protect up to five computers across various operating systems, including Windows® and Mac OS X®. ESET's Family Security Pack has been available on retail store shelves since September 13, 2011, and will be available online via the ESET online store October 25, 2011.
"At PTPA Media, we are proud to play a role in certifying innovative products that families can trust," said Sharon Vinderine, CEO and founder of PTPA Media Inc. "When consumers search for our Seal of Approval on product packaging and web sites, they are essentially searching for validation from their peers. Their peers will have objectively tested and approved these products based on their performance in a real life environment. That type of resource for families is priceless."
