World First: Singapore Gets First Look at Next-generation ESET Endpoint Solutions

Set for a global launch in May, the security suite offers enterprises cutting-edge ongoing protection against cybersecurity threats

Singapore, Apr 25, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - ESET, the leader in proactive protection against cyber-threats, today previewed its new flagship products for business customers branded as ESET Endpoint Solutions. This world's first sneak peek provided Singaporean analysts, media and bloggers withan insight into the advanced detection technology and multi-layered security features that make ESET the protection of choice for many of the world's biggest companies and governments. ESET has been pioneering security solutions against malware since1992 and has been awarded with the highest consecutive number of Virus Bulletin VB100 awards.

"As in the rest of the world, malware infections continue to plague businesses and consumers in Asia-Pacific. Many of these malware instances can be avoided with better user education," said Pierre-Marc Bureau, Security Intelligence Program Manager, ESET. "In the last six months, ESET has observed a prevalence of web threats. The danger of these threats are that these can be hosted on otherwise legitimate websites, which themselves are compromised. These compromised websites can then be used to conduct drive-by downloads, which actually download malicious files onto the user's system without their knowledge or authorization."

ESET Endpoint Security is the new generation of ESET's products for SMB and enterprise customers. ESET Endpoint Security utilizes scanning technology based on a proactive approach to detect current and new malware and other internet threats. Additionally, it offerswhitelisting of "safe files" that are cross-checked against the reputation database for optimized performance and boasts enhanced ESET Remote Administrator for managing clients.

The flagship ESET Endpoint Security features a Firewall, Web-controland Spam-filter, while ESET Endpoint Antivirus comes without these modules. Both come standard with Next Generation of ESET Remote Administrator for easy, centralized management of security.

"Many businesses in Asia are scaling up and changing their operations to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the new, connected world," said Ignacio Sbampato, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, ESET. "In the excitement and challenge of making that change, it is easy to underestimate the possible damage that could be caused by unsecured devices or networks. ESET Endpoint Solution is easy to deploy, allows remote monitoring, and lets business owners rest easily knowing that their assets are being protected."

Utilizing multiple layers of detection and ESET Live Grid (ESET's in-the-cloud file reputation service), ESET Endpoint Solutions deliver industry-leading proactive protection against emerging threats. The small-system footprint coupled with advanced remote management of clients make these solutions ideally-suited for companies of all sizes.

With the availability of more connected devices, including tablets and mobile phone, and with the growing popularity of BYOD, enterprises may find that their points of vulnerability are increasing," said Eva Markova, Chief Operations Officer Asia-Pacific, ESET. "For consumers, we already offer ESET Mobile Security for mobile devices, but it is also important for businesses to ensure that their networks have best-of-breed malware protection."

ESET Mobile Security will be available on Google Play from May 2, 2012, and is engineered specifically for mobile operating systems. It runs smoothly in the background while providing firewall, antispam and antitheft features, protecting data stored and accessed from the mobile device, seamlessly.
