App Review ESET Internet Security

It is advised to take all reviews with a grain of salt. In extreme cases some reviews use dramatization for entertainment purposes.

Accessibility notes
I will rate the program interface with four stars. In general, not bad, but for an ordinary user it will be very difficult to understand the intricacies of the settings, they are very detailed. It will be especially difficult to write the rules in HIPS. In addition, in the main window, the developers have brought in express tiles those functions that are not so important for the user. Instead of start scan - a report on the program's operation, instead of Quarantine - Bank payment protection, which I can easily launch from a shortcut on my desktop anyway. The Quarantine itself is hidden away so hard to find.

Additional Protection notes
In terms of protection, I give four only based on the latest test results of antivirus laboratories and tests from users on various YouTube channels. A performance of about 90% is worthy of 4 stars. But in the last test for protection against targeted attacks, Eset repelled 13 attacks out of 15 in the test for home users and 14 out of 15 in the test for corporate users, while in the test for corporate users the settings were set to an aggressive level, and for home users - by balanced level by default. In addition, if the user independently prescribes his own rules in HIPS and the firewall, as well as the recommended rules from developers and other experienced users, he will eventually receive about 98-99% protection. Therefore, I can put Eset even 5 with a minus, when the developers, by default, write down their recommended rules in HIPS. Web protection and network protection are excellent.
