What the experts say

"Yes, it’s true that Windows 8 and Windows 10 have antivirus built right in, but in our tests and most independent lab tests, Windows Defender hasn’t done very well."

PC Mag

"ESET achieved a 100 percent malware detection rate in both test segments – real-time test and reference set..."


"ESET have continuously participated in our tests for a decade and we are happy to see ongoing commitment to product improvement."


Computer Bild, one of the biggest IT magazines in Germany, and responsible for the most important antivirus tests in that country, published its latest Internet Security Test results in February 2016. ESET Smart Security 9 beat all its competitors to be declared the overall winner.
