ESET combines with Google to improve the security of the Google Chrome browser
Google and ESET have combined Chrome’s sandbox technology with ESET’s detection engine to create the Chrome Cleanup tool included in the latest version of Google Chrome. The new version of tool has been developed with the vision of allowing internet users to browse the web safely and without interruption.
“Under the hood, we upgraded the technology we use in Chrome Cleanup to detect and remove unwanted software. We worked with IT security company ESET to combine their detection engine with Chrome’s sandbox technology. We can now detect and remove more unwanted software than ever before, meaning more people can benefit from Chrome Cleanup.” – Philippe Rivard, Product Manager, Chrome Cleanup.
Chrome Cleanup is now able to detect unwanted software such as pop-up ads, unwanted extensions, toolbars and browser redirecting software, and single it out for removal thereby allowing internet users to enjoy safer technology.
Chrome Cleanup runs in the background while users are browsing on Chrome and alerts users to potential threats. It then gives users the option to quickly remove this harmful or unwanted software and restore Chrome to its default settings.
“Using the internet should always be a smooth and safe experience for everyone,” said Juraj Malcho, Chief Technology Officer at ESET. ““For three decades, ESET has developed a number of security solutions that allow users to safely enjoy their technology and to mitigate a variety of cyber threats. Chrome Cleanup addresses unwanted software that can negatively influence a users’ experience on the internet.”
Cyber security attacks have become more frequent, more advanced and more difficult to identify. Take the worry out of your browsing experience and download the ESET protected Chrome Cleanup tool here.
