AV-Comparatives names ESET Endpoint Security Solution as the lightest on the market
ESET has been awarded top marks by AV-Comparatives. ESET Endpoint Security has been named the lightest endpoint security solution on the market by the world’s leading security software testers AV-Comparatives. Following a series of performance tests on a number of endpoint security solutions, ESET Endpoint Security was commended for its low system impact.
“Antivirus is about balance: you need to ensure you stop the malware, eliminate false positives but do this with as little CPU impact on your computer and broader network as possible. In markets where businesses are not always operating with the latest hardware, software that has a small CPU footprint makes a massive difference and essentially extends the usable life of your hardware. In the Sub-Saharan African market where we focus, this is a key consideration to our customers and they notice an immediate improvement to their network performance whilst also getting an improvement in their malware detection rates” Alistair Freeman , CEO ESET East Africa.
Using one of the largest sample collections in the world, AV-Comparatives provides the most accurate test by creating a real-world environment and replicating the scenarios faced by everyday users.
ESET Endpoint Security provides businesses comprehensive IT security via multiple layers of protection including trademark NOD32® detection technology combined with machine learning. It protects networks from malware and phishing attacks and stops harmful malware from breaching your system. It provides complete data access protection and fully adjustable scanning, including cloud-powered scanning.
“ESET’s business solution made an impressive run in another of our Business performance tests, reaching the lowest impact score of all tested solutions,” commented Andreas Clementi, CEO at AV-Comparatives.
AV-Comparatives rated ESET’s product at an industry high, with a total score of 98.3 in the industry recognized PC Mark tests.
