ESET SMART SECURITY: BEST OF SECURITY BREEDS
I used to have Eset Nod32 Antivirus installed in my computer for quite a while. No, I was not convinced with the other reviews I have read. Rather, it all started when my brother and a friend recommended it. Talking about the food chain, eh? Then, Eset Smart Security 7 came in. Nothing much with this product, except it has an added bonus. And yes, it’s a plus security.
Over the years, the reason I didn’t switch to other anti-virus software is the quality it has provided. Although there may be flaws, all the improvements may have hid them in the covers.
ESET SMART SECURITY PERFORMANCE AND EXPERIENCE
Perhaps, you can imagine how a company that have been in the industry for 22 years. The first time it was installed in my computer, never I was able to experience that my machine was embedded with malware or other virus that couldn’t be fixed. Imagine how an expert basketball player does the shot block. That is how Eset works. It is good at real-time blocking. You may have noticed on some flaws of the software before, as days has passed, its service just keeps getting better.
WHAT ABOUT THE INTERFACE?
It may not be as simple as it can be, but looking at it, a polished simple usability interface. As for the other features? They are basically simple, yet rather useful.
By far, this is the feature I find it the most convenient. If you would want to have a quick Enable and Disable feature, clicking on this corner should serve its purpose. On the other hand, this is a way where parents can control their kids from clicking on the wrong site. Moreover, it has a password protect as part of its settings.
Continuing with its interface, Eset looks modern and sleek. The links compromise with the usability. There may be difficult stats to find, but they all haggle in the advanced settings tab or corner. Overall, it’s interface is user-friendly.
VIRUS AND SPYWARE PROTECTION
If you wanted real virus and spyware protection for your computer, Eset has met your needs. It has stopped any threats and even dangerous sites (although, not all).
Scanning may be able to capture the viruses, but not totally all of it. It may be able to leave some of the dangerous stuff, but it can still has the power to fix it anyway. Here’s their real deal, their firewall is the best. Although some users may not agree with me, firewall may not totally block all those threats and danger. Everyone is entitled to his own opinion. I did my fair share. Let me know below how Eset has been doing on yours too.
- Accurate filter
- Firewall attack
- Parental Control
- Not totally block the specific sites
- Limited sites blocked when parental control is used
Of Its Resource Usage
I have nothing much to say on this. Whenever your computer is running on idle, believe it or not, 1% is all it needs. Meanwhile, memory usage is just a whopping 55%. Nothing to be alarmed, right.
- Parental Controls
It’s the ability to block specific category sites. Perfect for parents.
- Social Media Scanner
Perfectly for Facebook users as it protects your wall and private messages.
- Gamer Mode
My husband and I enjoy much of this feature as everytime we play online, you couldn’t imagine what you comes along.
- Email Protection
- Removable Media Scanner
ESET Smart Security is an award-winning Internet security software that keeps you protected.
Real time protection is good. I have no questions about it. Although not all malware and specific sites are blocked, still, it has kept my computer protected.
