Out of the 180 solutions from eight cybersecurity vendors, ESET prevailed as the Champion.

In the category  “Malware Protection”, ESET scored especially high for both the “Company (producer) Rating” as well as in the category for quality of the endpoint solution “Technology / Solution Rating”.

The results have been recognized via Techconsult’s „Professional User Rating“.
