San Diego, Calif., Feb. 17, 2022 – ESET, a global leader in cybersecurity, today announced it has been named to G2’s 2022 Best Software Awards – Security Products, drawing recognition for ESET PROTECT Advanced, a cloud-based console that provides comprehensive multi-layered protection from ransomware and zero-day threats.

No stranger to the G2 Best Software list, ESET earned its place this year because of its high-performing, easy-to-use solutions, which protect and monitor 24/7, updating defenses in real time to keep users safe and businesses running without interruption. ESET PROTECT Advanced includes ESET Endpoint Security, ESET Server Security, ESET Full Disk Encryption and ESET Dynamic Threat Defense, ensuring that its customers receive protection against the most malicious and common threats. Its single-pane-of-glass allows for remote management for visibility of threats, users and quarantined items.

“We are thrilled to be designated to G2’s Best Software list and receive consistently great scores from G2’s reviewers,” said Brent McCarty, President, ESET North America. “For thirty years, ESET’s expert team of researchers has helped drive innovation against advanced threats and we continually update our solutions as cyber threats evolve. We are committed to research and development and are relentless in our pursuit to keep our customers safe, secure and satisfied.”  

ESET’s recognition by G2 comes on the heels of several other awards recently won by ESET. In the last three months, ESET was recognized as a Top Player in Radicati’s 2021 Endpoint Security Market Quadrant; awarded top marks for its business and consumer offerings in two separate AV-Comparatives tests; and was recognized as a Major Player in two IDC MarketScape reports – the Worldwide Modern Endpoint Security Enterprise 2021 Vendor Assessment and the Worldwide Modern Endpoint Security SMB 2021 Vendor Assessment.
