Purchasing Eset smart security 6


No back up or PC tune-up Heavier than average resource usage More and more people are using notebooks or tablets as their primary computing device, carrying them between home and office or working in a variety of locations. The Anti-Theft module in the new product does several things which, although not preventing theft in the first place, could help considerably in getting a stolen device back. Finally, if need be, you can wipe the hard drive remotely, reducing the value of the device. There are a few things missing compared with rival IS offerings. There are settings for web access protection, though, so we assume the suite is doing things behind the scenes. ESET offers a tool called SysInspector pictured above which takes a snapshot of your PC, showing the currently running apps and processes and indicating those that are suspect. You can then take steps to improve things, though a more automated tune-up process would be handier.

No back up or PC tune-up Heavier than average resource usage More and more people are using notebooks or tablets as their primary computing device, carrying them between home and office or working in a variety of locations.

The Anti-Theft module in the new product does several things which, although not preventing theft in the first place, could help considerably in getting a stolen device back. Finally, if need be, you can wipe the hard drive remotely, reducing the value of the device.

There are a few things missing compared with rival IS offerings. There are settings for web access protection, though, so we assume the suite is doing things behind the scenes. ESET offers a tool called SysInspector pictured above which takes a snapshot of your PC, showing the currently running apps and processes and indicating those that are suspect.

You can then take steps to improve things, though a more automated tune-up process would be handier. The combination enables flexible individual regimes to be set up. It looked at , of them, giving a scan rate of This is a decent performance that puts it in the middle of the IS products we've reviewed, speed-wise.

Repeating the test to look at how well the software fingerprints files it's already examined, the ESET scanner took 14 minutes and 10 seconds to examine 11, files. This is a good reduction and means that after an initial scan, the application won't be wasting time re-evaluating files that haven't changed. Looking at how system resources are affected by an AV scan, we saw an increase of 22 seconds in the copy time of 2GB of data, which represents a 23 per cent increase.

This puts the application in the bottom third of those we've reviewed over the years. When you look at the breakdown of results, ESET does very well in the Protection category, scoring 5. This included a full per cent in spotting malware only identified in the last four weeks, and it did nearly as well in seeing true zero-day attacks, with an average of 98 per cent.

The Usability score was also good, at 4. It did, however, give two false blocks while installing legitimate software and a fairly hefty nine warnings, when the group average was just one.

Its worst score was in the Performance category, where it only got 3. This part of the test measures the resource hit while doing typical things like visiting websites, downloading software and running programs.

The test machine took 9 seconds longer to complete a selection of these tasks, when the group average was 6 seconds. This result is a little worse than our own, but plausible under different test conditions.

Its anti-theft offering is, as far as we know, currently unique in this product area and could be very valuable in recovering a stolen machine. In other respects, there's nothing to particularly recommend this suite over some of its rivals. It's good at spotting malware and reasonably good at avoiding false positives, but it does put a comparatively high load on system resources.
