ESET Endpoint Security Pros

Gustavo-Lira - PeerSpot reviewer
Senior Technical Consultant at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
The most valuable thing for me is that when I'm using the internet and I reach some site that isn't so secure, or isn't recommended because they don't have a good reputation, ESET will notify me.

The ability to push policies and also to restrict an installation or to restrict any form of threat within the policy has been quite useful.

If it detects ransomware or something, it can isolate that computer.

The most valuable features of this solution are, of course, the IPS/IDS, Intrusion Prevention, Intrusion Detection, and Antivirus.

ESET has regular updates, and it gives me good feedback. It's not too onerous like some of the products I've used in the past.

I like the integration; it lets you see the product installed on a particular computer.

The potential threat protection feature is the most valuable. In the event that one of my computers is not on the network and gets a virus, ESET Endpoint Security quickly detects the malware, and in most cases, it removes the virus. It also has the ability to remotely shut down the computer. I like the remote control part the most.

They do a program where you can renew for three years. It's very reasonable, as far as the cost per year, because you can renew for three years. They will also do multiple computers, so I actually protect all my family computers, as well as my work computers, all under one license. This means I only have to deal with re-upping my license once every three years. That's the big thing for me.

ESET Endpoint Security Cons

Gustavo-Lira - PeerSpot reviewer
Senior Technical Consultant at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
Sometimes, ESET sends alerts within my own network that cause confusion. That is, it might warn about contamination, or that the VM has crashed, but it doesn't go further than that. It just shows me the alert and sometimes I am not sure what to do about it.

In terms of what is lacking in ESET, it really would need more features for the users when they are working outside of the corporate network.

It can be hard to set up if you need to customize it.

Probably, if they mix the EDR solution with the antivirus, they would have a better, more cost-effective, solution.

The proactive feature is excellent, but I do not believe ESET will make any changes to this feature in the future.

ESET's updates are mostly manual. That's my biggest concern. I'd like it to be more automatic. I've had to download the new version and run it manually to install it. I've got several workstations like that right now.

I've had a few other instances where the program stops running, and then you have to restore and reset it.

The use of SQL Server can be improved. At times, there is a bit of challenge while linking it with the Javascript. ESET Endpoint Security requires modern technology or modern equipment on site. You will find it difficult to use ESET Endpoint Security with dual-core machines. If they can add the cloud management feature to their product, it will be much easier. If you look at this COVID situation that we are in right now, people are working from home, so you need to control the computers wherever you are. For example, if you are using any email setup and you are hosting it on your own, all the email traffic will be going through the same network. You need to protect all of your computers from the attack. It is best if you can do it remotely rather than having an IT person to come onsite to manage all computers and metrics etc, which isn't a smart way to do it.

There are some new antivirus technologies that rely on AI, artificial intelligence. ESET does not have this technology right now.

It's not a huge thing, because it doesn't happen very often, but I'll notice sometimes, when there's a startup scan, the computer does bog down a little bit. However, this happens rarely.
