ESET NOD32 Antivirus Overview
I was working on improving file server security for a company in 2010. This company was negligent on file security, and many computers got infected by copying files from the file server. I tried many free antiviruses, but the infected rate was still high until I chose ESET NOD32 Antivirus. The number of infected computers was getting down from 63% to 0.3%.
During the ESET NOD32 development, it has more attentive designs for users. For example, the Gamer Mode, if you are in a presentation or playing a game, activating gamer mode could prevent any pop-up message to impact your activity. The System Cleaner, after antivirus cleaning threats, it will help you to restore the computer to a usable state. The Internet Protection includes web access protection, email client protection, and anti-phishing protection to provide a secure internet environment.
