When it comes to system security, ESET Smart Security boasts several interesting features. The firewall can be put in the Automatic mode, which will filter through incoming traffic and remove any undesirable elements. It also works on an “in-network” basis, to protect computer belonging to the same home or office network.
The anti-virus has anti-phishing protection which blocks malicious websites’ attempts at stealing personal information and prevents access to said sites. Keylogging is also no longer a problem, thanks to the “hardened” browser window available in the Banking & Finances option. Using it, the user can encrypt the keystrokes and protect any sensitive data, such as passwords and logins.
