Forrester Names ESET a " Strong Performer " in Endpoint Security

ESET was among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate in its Q4 2016 Forrester Wave™ evaluation, Endpoint Security Suites,

In this evaluation, ESET was cited as a Strong Performer in Endpoint Security ESET delivers strong antimalware protection in a lightweight package.
ESET has historically focused on the consumer and SMB markets, but over the past few years has introduced more features that give its endpoint security suite the flexibility and breadth typically sought by enterprise buyers. this includes a solid balance of endpoint prevention and automated remediation functions, bolstered by a number of ancillary endpoint security technologies such as endpoint encryption, media control, and mobile security.
ESET’s product gets very high marks from users for prevention effectiveness, along with a very low detriment to endpoint user experience. However, the lack of flexible application control and vulnerability remediation capabilities may give certain enterprise buyers pause and will need to be addressed in future iterations of the product if it is to remain competitive.
