ESET launches updated consumer security range for Windows

ESET: Cybersecurity company ESET is launching new versions of its Windows consumer security products offering improved levels of protection.


ESET Internet Security, ESET NOD32 Antivirus and ESET Smart Security Premium get a wide range of security improvements covering malware detection, online banking, password security and smart home support.

The updates bring fine-tuning of the Host-Based Intrusion Prevention System and Advanced Machine Learning modules, along with a significant reduction in the size of the Machine Learning module.

ESET new Windows updates

“As cyberthreats continue to evolve in sophistication and frequency, it is vital that consumers and their devices are protected on every level,” says Matej Krištofík, product manager at ESET. “Technology is at the center of our lives, from online banking to connected homes, so it is more important than ever that our personal technology is safe and secure. We are proud to offer our latest Windows security product updates to consumers, reflecting our dedication to consistently improve and innovate in order to provide a safe digital experience for all.”

Other updates include new Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and System Registry scanners capable of detecting malware that uses the WMI or the registry maliciously. The Connected Home module is also improved with better connected device detection and security issue troubleshooting.


An upgraded Banking and Payment Protection module features a special secured browser mode through which users can safely pay online. This allows users to run any supported browser in secured mode by default. With secured mode on, the communication of the keyboard and mouse with the browser is encrypted to guard against keylogging. It now also notifies users when Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is turned on to alert them about the danger of malware abusing RDP.
