Ransomware and zero-day threat detection

Detect new, never-before-seen types of threats. ESET utilizes several different machine learning models once a file is submitted.

Granular reports

An admin can create a report from ESET LiveGuard Advanced data in the ESET PROTECT console. They can either use one of the pre-defined reports or create a custom one.

Transparent, full visibility

Every analyzed sample status is visible in the ESET PROTECT console, showing data sent to ESET LiveGrid®. For privacy, you can also require immediate post-analysis deletion of samples. 

Mobility

Nowadays, employees often do not work on the premises. Our advanced threat defense analyzes files no matter where users are.

Automatic protection

The endpoint or server product automatically decides whether a sample is good, bad or unknown. 

Proactive protection

If a sample is found to be suspicious, it is blocked from executing, pending analysis by ESET LiveGuard Advanced. Upon detection, all endpoints in the network are protected within minutes.

How our advanced, multilayered analysis works

ESET LiveGuard Advanced is a cloud-based threat defense solution that executes all submitted suspicious samples in an isolated ESET HQ cloud test environment and evaluates their behavior using threat intelligence feeds, multiple internal tools for static and dynamic analysis, and reputation data to detect zero-day threats. Four layers are used to analyze samples, but not all of these have to be used if we’re sure about the result in advance.
