ESET Endpoint Security Valuable Features

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. Many times I will decide to just accept ESET's advice and I will stop visiting that website. In some very rare cases, I go through to the site anyway because I already know that it's secure.

The solution's most valuable aspect is essentially managing a solution. 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.

The threat protection is actually pretty good.

It has a lot of tools. I need a tool to have some type of check when people connect to public WiFi. I was able to build some types of profiles and have ESET check the connection type. If there is weak encryption, it will not connect. That is cool. That wasn't available as a feature from Symantec. There's a lot of customization you can do with ESET. There is a lot you can do with it.

I would say the best feature that I like is the isolation. If it detects ransomware or something, it can isolate that computer. It disconnects it from the network.

The solution is stable.

It's scalable. 

The technical support has been helpful and responsive.

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

I believe I can find it in the most recent version in a sandbox. Network Security in a Sandbox It includes seven different tools, including network security, IPS/IDS, and ESET which is also valuable.

It is easy to use.

The user interface is very easy. 

API integration is good. 

They have an iteration tool that makes the API connection flawless.

It's hard to evaluate the effectiveness of antivirus stuff because you don't know if it's working well until something happens. 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.

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.

There are two things I like the most about ESET Endpoint Security. One, it's a seamless update. In other words, it updates all in the background. You don't have to restart your computer after an update. It takes care of itself, updates all the time, and stays up to date. It automatically installs those updates, similar to what Windows does. 

The second biggest ESET Endpoint Security plus is the value. 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.

There is another nice ESET Endpoint Security feature: you can shut it off for 10 minutes and then turn it back on.

The normal security tracking and the real-time warning of viruses or possible threats. We have not currently used the Dynamic Scanner option to set it up for their servers to be checked, but we are planning on activating that on some of our computers. The reports and the data received by the ESET console to feed also our order management tools. The CMDB that we use and have a unique solution, a unique point that oversees all the solutions we have.

It has a clean and clear interface. The performance on the endpoint, no matter the system, its resource usage is low. We have pretty good detection, at least I feel that we don't have any major infections — we love it.

We can use this solution to perform lots of tasks, like upgrading. We can integrate with Windows. Some of the patches don't update by default, by Microsoft. We can do some software installations, in-store — which is pretty easy. Whenever we upgrade, our lives become much easier.

Endpoint Security currently meets our needs. We are implementing a cyber-security process. After doing a lab analysis, we determined we have one more we need to implement. 

All of our devices are integrated with the solution. It is working so well that we renewed the contract for two more years.

The most valuable feature of this solution is the protection itself, which works well for us.

I don't know what would need improvement. It's a fine solution for us. I don't know what could be better. There are many other solutions to compare with, but I don't know them.

With ESET we are content for now. It is what we need.

I find the main valuable feature to be the antivirus, it is very effective with removing viruses. I also like the fact that it gives you protection when you do the banking and the scanning of emails in and out. The interface is well designed, performance is smooth, easy to configure, and overall really nice to work with. At this stage of our evaluation, it is a comprehensive solution.

It is pretty easy to deploy. Its update definition file is small, so it can dispatch very quickly within the enterprise. The product itself is very lightweight, so it won't delay your endpoint. You also don't have to do any difficult configuration because it comes with a very good default setting. So, you just install it and forget it.
