These tiers are built on the foundation of the ESET PROTECT Elite subscription tier, offering businesses of all sizes the most comprehensive, AI-powered threat detection and response capabilities, in combination with expert human analysis and comprehensive threat intelligence. 

ESET’s updated MDR business offering is designed to cater to the specific needs of both SMBs and Enterprises. To that end, ESET PROTECT MDR delivers a comprehensive cybersecurity package, offering 24/7/365 superior protection that addresses the most common challenges of small and medium-sized businesses. This includes modern protection for endpoints, email, and cloud applications, vulnerability detection and patching, and managed threat monitoring, hunting, and response. It addresses the cybersecurity talent shortages and ensures compliance with cyber insurance and regulations, offering a remarkable 20-minute average time to detect and respond, a comprehensive MDR dedicated dashboard and regular reporting for complete peace of mind.

For enterprises, ESET PROTECT MDR Ultimate offers continuous proactive protection and enhanced visibility, coupled with customised threat hunting and remote digital forensic incident response assistance. This comprehensive service is designed to support overstretched SOC teams, providing them with 24/7 access to world-class cybersecurity expertise. It ensures enterprises stay one step ahead of all known and emerging threats, effectively closing the cybersecurity skills gap, and facilitating expert consultations for incident management and containment in a fully managed experience.

ESET also sets itself apart with its own telemetry and unique global coverage, leveraging its detections and ESET Research to gather unique data about attacks, a competitive edge not offered by many players in the market.

“With the update of our business offering, we want to make ESET products accessible to customers without the necessary skill set or resources to operate them, but to also empower organisations to navigate the digital landscape confidently, safeguarded by our expertise and continuous, comprehensive coverage," stated Michal Jankech, Vice President of SMB and MSP segment at ESET.

Additional updates to the ESET business portfolio

Additionally, all ESET PROTECT subscription tiers starting from ESET PROTECT Advanced are enhanced with the new stand-alone module ESET Mobile Threat Defence (EMTD). It extends attack vector coverage to an organisation's entire mobile fleet, seamlessly integrating into the ESET PROTECT Platform for efficient management, ensuring comprehensive protection for mobile devices. EMTD also includes a Mobile Device Management (MDM) functionality, with added support for Microsoft Entra ID.

Moreover, ESET Server Security introduces a firewall specifically designed for Windows servers, and Vulnerability & Patch Management, offering manual patch management and a 60-second delay of application process kill.

  Finally, ESET LiveGuard Advanced now also offers advanced behavioural reports for our detection and response customers, providing an in-depth look into how our cloud sandboxing technology analyses suspicious files, offering better visibility and context for security operators like cybersecurity and threat analysts, security engineers, or threat responders.
