ESET NOD32 Antivirus V3.0 and ESET Smart Security Business Editions Now Available

    Integrated Solution Delivers Unmatched Speed and Accuracy in a Dispersed
Computing Environment

    SAN DIEGO, November 26 /CNW/ - ESET, the leader in proactive threat
protection, today announced the general availability of ESET Smart Security
Business Edition, a new, highly integrated security solution for enterprises
and small-to-medium-sized businesses. It includes antivirus, antispyware,
antispam and firewall features built on ESET's award-winning advanced
heuristic ThreatSense(R) detection system and the ESET NOD32 Antivirus
scanning engine. The Business Edition also incorporates ESET's Remote
Administrator, allowing both ESET Smart Security and the new version of ESET
NOD32 Antivirus to be deployed and managed remotely from a central location.

    "ESET understands that businesses are looking for maximum protection, low
system requirements, accurate results and fast scanning speeds--all at a low
total cost of ownership," said Anton Zajac, CEO of ESET, LLC. "With ESET Smart
Security, we've been able to deliver the industry's highest level of accuracy
with the fewest false-positives, thereby virtually eliminating the man hours
traditionally spent chasing after inaccurate results. Our solution runs behind
the scenes and even in large dispersed deployments, it operates with
industry-leading scanning speed and near-zero impact on system performance."

    With significantly lower performance overhead compared to the
competition, ESET Smart Security uses only 40MB of disk space and scans
systems up to 30-times faster than other products. And unlike security suites
which combine standalone products, ESET Smart Security tightly integrates the
antispyware, antispam and firewall features with the new version of ESET's
flagship ESET NOD32 Antivirus scanning engine. This tight integration allows
each module to share information with the other to evaluate and classify every
threat appropriately within the ThreatSense detection system.

    ESET's ThreatSense technology provides the industry's highest level of
accuracy. It is the only antivirus technology that has not missed an
in-the-wild-virus in Virus Bulletin VB 100 testing over the past nine years,
while producing only one false-positive during that time. It has also received
more Advanced+ awards from for proactive protection than
any other product.

    About ThreatSense

    ESET solutions are built on ESET's one-of-a-kind ThreatSense technology.
This advanced heuristics engine enables proactive detection of malware not
covered by even the most frequently updated signature-based products by
decoding and analyzing executable code in real time, using an emulated
environment. By allowing malware to execute in a secure virtual world, ESET is
able to clearly differentiate between benign files and even the most
sophisticated and cleverly-disguised malware. ESET Smart Security takes this
advanced methodology to the next level by applying it to the integrated
solution as a whole, passing evaluation information between its integrated
features for the most accurate protection possible.
