ESET Smart Security 8 bundles a firewall, anti-spam, anti-spyware, anti-phishing, parental controls, laptop theft protection, and much more, including new Exploit Blocker, Botnet Protection, and Social Media Scanner apps.
ESET Smart Security includes a personal firewall to replace Windows Firewall and it can be set to automatic, interactive, policy-based or learning mode.
Users may password-protect the configuration settings in the case the computer is shared with others.
ESET Smart Security 8 goes head-to-head with pricier packages but also faces pressure from less expensive suites and well-equipped freeware.
What’s more, ESET Smart Security, according to its developers, was built to be fast.
It opens along with Windows and runs in the background, protecting your computer silently while you work just as you normally would.
ESET Smart Security 8 offers kitchen-sink protection with minimum fuss. Compared to similar security suites, it may be a bargain.
