Good, but could be great

2020-04-06

Feel very protected, just not the easiest management console to confirgure with

Pros

We've been using ESET endpoint security for a number of years and in that time have had no infections. Real time monitoring picks up iffy websites any staff may venture onto.

Cons

Setting policies and tasks isn't too bad to configure but does require training/practice.

Love the AV, not a fan of the Remote Administration

2018-10-03

At the end of the day, what really matters is the end point security, and ESET is where I go every time I need AV, whether it is on my person computers, work computers, or those of friends and family.

Pros

Secure and Reliable AV without a huge impact on performance Priced competitively Centralized management with AD Integration

Cons

Reporting is lacking in accuracy and robustness License management is slightly annoying, endpoints always duplicating and eating up the licensing No transparent way to esnure End Points have the latest version of the core application automatically

Great and reliable product, very happy so far.

2018-04-17

Pros

Very convenient that we don't have to exclude too much from monitoring, since the software is smart enough not to flag our line of business apps.

Cons

Policy management is a little tedious as well as endpoint management.

Full coverage anti-malware

2018-11-09

I didn't need to escalate up to someone who knew the answers, my first contact was capable.

Pros

I chose ESET for my MSP business because the product offers not only anti-virus but network, web and email security as well.

Cons

Settings are configured as sets of policies, and applied to computers as members of groups.

Data Security Enhanced

2019-01-04

Has multilayered technology that helps protect your data privacy

Pros

Easy to use especially the management interface, removes all identified malwares and can disinfect files that have been infected.

Cons

Scan takes a lot of time especially the full scan and during this period a lot of RAM is used up thus is not ideal for slower computers.

It provides strong security with a lot of great additional features, but it will slow down older PCs

2018-04-30

eSet has all of the security features you'd expect from antivirus, as well as a nice alerting feature for when viruses are suspected.

Pros

eSet provides your basic antivirus and antimalware protection as you'd expect, but it also includes strong heuristics and memory scanning. It will limit internet browsing rights, and help control what software your employees can place on your business PCs.

Cons

We've seen a lot more slowdown on the PCs due to eSet than we have with some of the other packages, which also include comparable features.

Great lightweight Anti Virus

2018-12-01

Pros

The software requires very little resources to run, catches and blocks a lot of malicious and fake alert web pages and has great customization.

Cons

Sometimes the module updates can get stuck and hang on slow internet connections. Some alerts are a bit difficult to identify how to clear.

First Hand Experience

2020-02-26

After several upgrades, it became easier to update all endpoints centrally which I really like.

Pros

The centralized management console and ability to push updates to endpoints really saved a lot of time.

Cons

Reporting function is a little confusing and sometimes frustrating trying to generate a new report.

Lack of cloud management holding them back

2019-07-16

The product is robust, capable and with the ERA management is painless, if a little more complex to setup initially.

Pros

If you're running in an enterprise then its ESET Remote Administrator Server tool allows you to easily push out installers, monitor and manage the application.

Cons

Cloud management isn't the best as its reliant on more dated technology, being their ERA product but they're catching up.

Best detection rates I've seen

2018-12-05

I've only seen one infection on a system running a current and updated version of ESET.

Pros

Another feature that has been strongly favored among my client is Device Control which allows blocking devices that present security issues such as USB flash drives.

Cons

The remote management console and it's deployment methods have a slight learning curve.

ESET Endpoint Security fully complied with my expectations. I feel safe with this software.

2018-07-03

The uncertainty generated by running the risk of a file or computer being infected is resolved with this software that I would definitely recommend to any potential client.

Pros

ESET Endpoint Security has a very friendly management console that allows the user to quickly become familiar with this software.

Cons

I do not have many negative aspects to highlight from this software. Perhaps an aspect to improve is to reduce response times through customer service.

Good product, it does its jobs, easy to maintain.

Pros

Simply easy to install Endpoint security product that does its job.

Setting up the management console on-premise can take a little time, but it does sync with Active Directory which should make configure it a lot easier.

2019-09-16

It ensures the complete security of system.

Pros

The first and foremost feature that I like in this product is its reporting feature that is quite robust and customizable which makes my work easier and also quite convenient. Scanning power of the system is quite efficient that it readily identifies any sort of virus or threat even before the attack to protect my data bases in a very delicate way.

Cons

I am not having single complain about it.
