Remote network management

ESET Security Management Center manages endpoint products, including ESET Endpoint Antivirus for Linux, from a single pane of glass and can be installed on Windows or Linux. As an alternative to on-premise server installation, customers with up to 250 seats can opt for ESET Cloud Administrator.

Cross-platform, multilayered protection

A single layer of defense is not nearly enough for today's evolving threat landscape. Focusing on the whole of the malware lifecycle - pre-execution, execution and post execution - and not only on a specific part, allows ESET to provide the highest level of protection possible. ESET endpoint products support all operating systems including Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android – as well as Mobile Device Management for iOS and Android.

Built for performance

ESET Endpoint Antivirus for Linux was designed for high performance. Running real-time in the background and GUI-less, each daemon only starts when needed, saving the system resources of your Linux endpoints. Desktop notifications are only displayed when a threat has been eliminated, requiring no user intervention.

Use cases

PROBLEM

Zero-day threats are a major concern for businesses due to them not knowing how to protect against something that they have never seen before.

SOLUTION

  • ESET endpoint products leverage heuristics and machine learning as part of our multilayered approach to prevent and protect against never before seen malware.
  • 13 global R&D labs help to quickly respond to malware after their first incidence anywhere across the globe.
  • ESET’s cloud malware protection system automatically protects against new threats without the need to wait for the next detection update.

The ESET difference

Machine Learning

All ESET Endpoint products currently use machine learning in conjunction with all of our other layers of defense and have done so since 1997. Specifically, machine learning is used in the form of consolidated output and neural networks.

Reputation & Cache

When inspecting a file or URL, before any scanning takes place, our products check the local cache for known malicious or whitelisted benign objects. This improves scanning performance.

ESET Livegrid®

Whenever a zero-day threat such as ransomware is seen, the file is sent to our cloud-based malware protection system, LiveGrid®, where the threat is detonated and its behavior is monitored. The results of this system are provided to all endpoints globally within minutes without requiring any updates.

DNA Detections

Detection types range from very specific hashes to ESET DNA Detections, which are complex definitions of malicious behavior and malware characteristics. While the malicious code can be easily modified or obfuscated by attackers, the behavior of objects cannot be changed so easily and ESET DNA Detections are designed to take advantage of this principle.
