For anyone interested in trying ESET Cyber Security for macOS 7 BETA, we have good news to share – it’s ready for the BETA testing.

The first release comes with features, which are most important for the protection as this version is based on a completely new architecture. Next features will be added gradually with new releases.
This new generation is built on new, modern micro-services architecture which will enable us to develop new features faster and makes code maintenance much easier.

The features which we would like to highlight are:
  • Apple ARM chip native version
  • Completely new GUI with Dark mode
  • Significantly improved performance (more efficient code, improved multithreading, offloading of unused modules)
  • Improved security and stability
  • A lot of under-the hood and user facing improvements

Known issues:
App preferences are not yet available, even though they are mentioned in the GUI.

The BETA installer is available at here.
Supported macOS releases are macOS Ventura (version 13), macOS Monterey (version 12), macOS Big Sur (version 11), macOS Catalina (version 10.15).
As usually, by downloading and using the ESET Cyber Security 7 BETA you agree with the ESET_Beta_Program_Agreement, which is available to read along the installer download.

Always conflicted about this. I had a long phone conversation with an upper level Apple tech, they tolerate Malwarebytes, only if you must & nothing more. I do have mbam real time on my macmini. I like ESET but once upon a time I did have an unnamed 3d party av on a Mac, and that deteriorated into a disaster. Maybe things have improved with 3d party and Mac more recently?, but for now I'm sticking with macOS built-in protections with mbam on the side.
