Management server

ESET Security Management Center manages endpoint products from a single pane of glass and can be installed on Windows or Linux. ESET also has a virtual appliance that can be imported for quick and easy setup.

Cross platform support

ESET endpoint products support all operating systems including Windows, macOS, Linux and Android. Not only can all endpoint products be managed from a single pane of glass, but Mobile Device Management for iOS and Android is fully built in as well.

Multilayered defense

A single layer of defense isn't sufficient in today's constantly evolving threat landscape. All ESET endpoint products have the ability to detect malware pre-execution, during execution and post-execution. By focusing on the entire malware lifecycle, ESET provides the highest level of protection possible.

Use cases

PROBLEM

Zero-day threats are a major concern for businesses because they don't know 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 behavior is monitored. Results of this review 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.
