Key Features

Custom transition plan

      Efficiently switches your existing antivirus solution to ESET's product.

      Custom uninstaller

          Time is valuable, which is why Rip & Replace is built and tested for you, prior to delivery. It removes all versions of existing antivirus software without wasting any time.

          Uninterrupted protection

              Seamlessly transition from your existing antivirus product to ESET, so you can avoid ever having computers without protection.

              Low impact on resources

                  Rip & Replace is configured to run silently in the background, or be triggered on reboot, minimizing impact on employee productivity.

                  Accounting and reporting

                      Reports can be loaded into a central location in your network so you can quickly find which endpoints have been migrated to ESET, and which ones still need Rip & Replace to be performed.

                      Free technical consultation

                          Pricing includes two hours of consulting time with an ESET Sales Engineer.

                          Frees up IT resources

                              Saves your IT staff's time by completing the entire process with a single installer, rather than needing multiple deployments of software to switch AV solutions.

                                          • "Rip and Replace was fantastic. I suspect the process would have taken weeks of having to "touch" 650 workstations and manually remove the old product. Rip and Replace cut the process down to a few days and in addition to removing McAfee, it installed ESET endpoint and connected it to the management server."

                                          • "They implemented a strategy for a district wide rollout, they created a package that removed old product replacing it with ESET NOD32 and activated at the same time, rolling out their product was one of the easiest migrations we ever had to do in our district."
