The
new
version of ESET products for home and SOHO users is now available
in retail stores across India as well as online on ESET India website
.
The
upgrade from all previous versions to the new 5th version is
absolutely free for current users.

ESET
NOD32
Antivirus 5
and ESET Smart Security 5 offer various
improved features, including ESET Live Grid, cloud-based
reputation and protection technology, new Removable Media Control,
with
more granular control of external devices, Parental Control
(only in ESET Smart Security 5), Advanced Host-based Intrusion
Prevention System (HIPS)
and Gamer Mode that switches to
silent mode and disables pop ups to conserve system resources and
enhance the gaming experience. Fifth generations of ESET Products is
furnished with ESET Unilicense which allows users to extend
protection to all operating systems (Windows, Mac OS or Linux)
running on a single machine at no additional cost.

Apart
from
improved usability, easy and friendly graphic user interface,
the crucial innovation of the 5th generation of ESET home products
lies in the technology itself. There has been revolutionary change in
what used to be called ThreatSense.Net – ESET’s cloud-based malware
collection system that utilizes data from ESET solutions users
worldwide. The technology is now named ESET Live Grid and offers
optimization of scanning based on the white listing of “safe”
files. Another scanning method used in 5th version is cloud-based
reputation which allows determine whether a particular object is
secure or not. As a result, even more precision threats detecting and
increased speed of scanning”, says Pankaj Jain, Director, ESS
Distribution (P) Ltd (Exclusive Distributor for ESET products in
India).

New
feature
Advanced Host Intrusion
Prevention System (HIPS)
implemented
in
5th generation of ESET products allows
tech savvy users to customize the behavior of the whole system and
its each part. User can define rules for system registry, processes,
applications and files. The tool can be used to block unauthorized
changes to programs.

Removable
Media
Control
is another new tool aimed to secure users from
viruses and malware that spread though removable media affecting
computers without the need for internet access. This tool
automatically prompts the user to scan the content
of all flash drives (USB, SD), firewire, CDs and DVDs, so that
specific threats can be blocked from trying to get through to the
system through the media devices.
Users can block/allow
removable media, based on the type of media, manufacturer, size and
other attributes.

Removable
Media
Control feature will be very useful for Indian
users who are most vulnerable for worms and viruses spreading through
Internet and removable media,
mostly USB flash drives, as ESET
latest cyber threat reports show”, adds
Pankaj Jain.

Parental
Control
feature build into ESET Smart Security 5 allows blocking
websites with potentially offensive material. In addition, parents
can prohibit access to more than 20 pre-defined website categories.
The user can set up a “role” for each user account, each with its
own set of default website categories that are allowed or disabled
during browsing.
