The ESET difference

Unrivalled performance

ESET products continue to excel in the performance arena and win third-party tests that prove how light-weight our endpoints are on systems. ESET File Security solutions are built on 64-bit core, including ESET's latest 64-bit scanning engine for best performance and protection of customer's data.

Parallel on-demand scanning

ESET File Security allows side-by-side on-demand scans that will run without significant impact on the system due to multi-core support. In case scans have different paths to scan, they can be started either by the admin or scheduler. The scheduler allows recurrent planning of scans, updates or log maintenance.

Powered by LiveGrid® technology

Latest LiveGrid® technology improves security using a reputation and feedback system, including whitelisting for better performance during scanning.

Network Attached Storage scanning

The product provides real-time file system protection of the whole host with the ability to scan attached network drives. ESET File Security for Linux can utilize ICAP protocol to scan NAS systems like Dell EMC Isilon as well as other ICAP-compliant NAS systems (Hitachi and other ICAP-compliant storages).
