The development of the latest version literally brought the whole company together. There are several significant improvements under the hood, which have involved ESET teams across the whole world in an effort to deliver the signature low system footprint and the highest level of protection.
In order to do so, we re-engineered the way ESET Smart Security 9 and ESET NOD32 Antivirus 9 update to ensure maximum protection. The process is now even more flexible and transparent, with automatic updating to the latest protection features as soon as they become available.
Based on usability testing, we have also redesigned the graphical user interface to better fit the needs of our customers.
