ESET Internet Security

Protect your PC from hackers, malware and more



ESET Internet Security 12 is ESET's mid-range security package.

The program delivers everything you get with its core antivirus package: malware and ransomware blocking, web browsing and antiphishing protection, and a social media module to keep you safe from malicious content.

There are all the extras you'd expect with an internet security suite, too: a firewall, antispam, parental controls, online banking and payment protection, and more.

While this sounds much like any other suite, there are many extras that you won't often find elsewhere.

A Device Control module allows you to take complete control over the ways your users can access and work with any given device type (you can allow them use of CDs and DVDs but block USB keys, say).

A powerful Host Intrusion Protection System gives detailed control over what processes can and can't do on your system.

ESET SysRescue Live is an enhanced rescue environment, a Linux-based malware cleaner which can be booted from a CD, DVD or USB Flash drive (North America Only).

The previous release extended the package with specialist script protection, blocking malicious PowerShell scripts, dangerous JavaScripts and more.

Home Network Protection scans your local network for vulnerabilities, including weak passwords and out-of-date and firmware, and helps you track all your connected devices.

A new Webcam monitor tracks everything using your webcam, alerts you to any unexpected processes and allows you to block them.
