Recognizing the complex and evolving nature of ransomware, an ever more formidable threat to customers’ work and personal lives, ESET will enhance its software-based detection technologies with a ransomware detection only Intel hardware can deliver. With progress in technological innovations often bringing new tools for the sustained growth and security of SMBs, the integration of Intel TDT means that ESET endpoint security software running on Intel-based PCs can deliver superior ransomware protection.

Makes me wish I stuck with Intel.

Home users will also benefit from it, if this feature improves ransomware detection (through quicker definitions update and cloud protection).
Still, I hope that they'll implement it in home user products also.
That is indirect benefit.

If this technology can be implemented in home products in the future, just like LiveGuard, it is very likely that ESET Smart Security Premium will be the only one to benefit from it.
