ESET launches Smart Security 9

November 2015 News, Cyber Security, Products

ESET has announced the availability of its new security solutions for Windows home users: ESET Smart Security 9 and ESET NOD32 Antivirus 9. Both have a re-engineered user interface and ESET Smart Security 9 features a new tool to protect customers’ banking transactions and online payments.

Maintaining its lightweight footprint, ESET has re-engineered its security products to improve usability and performance, with a completely re-designed user interface. Both products are compatible with Microsoft’s newest operating system, Windows 10. ESET Smart Security 9 is an all-in-one Internet security solution built around the ESET NOD32 detection technology.

On top of other technologies that protect customers from Internet threats in ESET Smart Security 9 is new Banking & Payment Protection. This feature secures the user’s browser of choice to ensure that all their online financial transactions are processed safely – for online banking sites it works automatically.

The demand for such a feature arose from the growing use of online banking by consumers worldwide, which has made this service a target for cyber criminals. ESET products are engineered with a multi-layered approach that protects users from all types of threats at different levels. “We see a constant increase in malware that targets banking and financial information and operations, and while we have technologies in place that can block them, ESET has designed a completely new feature that improves the experience of our customers and secures their online money-related activities at a whole different level”, says Carey van Vlaanderen, CEO at ESET Southern Africa.

ESET Smart Security 9 multi-layered security also includes proven technologies such as Botnet Protection, Exploit Blocker and Vulnerability Shield. Botnet Protection protects the user’s computer from being taken over by a remote attacker and used as part of a network of infected computers for malicious purposes. Exploit Blocker is designed to fortify applications on the user’s system that are often exploited, such as web browsers, PDF readers, email clients or MS Office components, while Vulnerability Shield improves detection of known vulnerabilities on the network level..
