Next story

BRATISLAVA – ESET, a global leader in cybersecurity, has recently launched the latest version of its home Windows products, providing advanced protection to users without compromising on performance, speed, or usability. ESET NOD32 Antivirus, ESET Internet Security, and ESET Smart Security Premium are designed to provide the very best in protection, whilst enabling users to enjoy the full power of their computer.

Like mobile phones, computers and laptops are now built with high performance capabilities for video, photo and game display, and it is vital that cybersecurity software does not inhibit the capabilities of users’ devices, whilst still providing optimum protection. Of the estimated 2.2 billion gamers in the world, 1.2 billion of those are playing games on a PC, and as such, ESET is proud to deliver a cybersecurity solution that caters to all consumers’ needs, whether for business or leisure.

ESET software lets you play, work and browse the internet without slowdowns. A key feature of the software is the Small System Footprint, allowing users to maintain high system performance and extend the lifetime of the hardware. In addition to this, the software features a Gamer Mode, whereby it automatically switches to silent mode if any program is run in full-screen. System updates and notifications are postponed to save resources for gaming, video, photos or presentations.

ESET’s home solutions have also demonstrated results in terms of low system footprint and high performance. AV-Comparatives has awarded ESET Internet Security with five consecutive Advanced+ awards for high performance since May 2017.

Matej Krištofík, product manager for consumer security products from ESET, commented, “ESET is proud to offer cutting-edge solutions to consumers with its latest edition. We are passionate about providing the very best in IT and security, and ensuring users are able to fully enjoy using their devices whilst knowing they are fully protected and in safe hands. Gaming is hugely popular and is only getting bigger and bigger, and it is vital that cybersecurity providers take this into account when catering to consumers’ needs.”

The latest edition of ESET’s offer for home users includes a host of many new features that enhance their protection and improve performance.
