ESET Smart Security 9 and ESET NOD32 Antivirus 9 launched

ESET, a global provider of proactive protection, has released ESET Smart Security 9 and ESET NOD32 Antivirus 9. The user interface has been redesigned while feature sets have been strengthened.

“Asia-Pacific has the largest number of Internet users in the world,” says Parvinder Walia, Sales and Marketing Director for ESET, Asia Pacific. “Similarly, mobile and smartphone usage across the region continue to outpace the rest of the world, so it’s no surprise that the convenience of online and mobile banking continues to grow in popularity. The new banking and payment protection feature in ESET Smart Security 9 will ensure our customers can enjoy seamless, secure banking and financial services on-the-go.”

The V9 technology is based on NOD32, which is known for its interactive engine that detects and blocks malware. ESET NOD32 Antivirus 9 offers customers an enhanced browsing experience with its detection and protection capabilities provided by antispyware, anti-phishing and an exploit blocker while ESET Smart Security 9 introduces banking and payment protection, designed to automatically detect when users are performing financial transactions and providing automatic protection. ESET Smart Security 9 also includes botnet protection, blocks exploits and identifies vulnerabilities.

Botnet protection protects the user’s computer from being taken over by a remote attacker and used as part of a network of infected computers for malicious purposes. Exploit Blocker is designed to fortify applications on the user’s system that are often exploited, such as web browsers, PDF readers, email clients or Microsoft Office components, while Vulnerability Shield improves detection of known vulnerabilities on the network level.
