Top-rated internet security

PCMag logo

"PCMag Readers' Choice Award winner for security suites is ESET. The company received the highest ratings from survey respondents in several measures including, most importantly, overall satisfaction (9.3) and likelihood to recommend (9.4). In fact, ESET received ratings of 9.0 or better on every measure except satisfaction with cost (8.4), which—unless you're giving your product away for free—isn't a bad result. Ratings are on a scale from 0 (extremely dissatisfied) to 10 (extremely satisfied).

So much of what security tools do happens under the hood. So it's important that users trust that the tools are working properly. ESET received a rating of 9.3 for trust, the highest among all the suites. One user of ESET's suite captured the sentiment of many of the respondents: 'It is the best security suite I have ever used. Requirements are minimal, it scans fast, catches anything trying to sneak in.'"
