Leader in Proactive Malware Protection Receives Honors for Strong Performance and Ease of Use in Competitive Review

SAN DIEGO - June 27, 2007 - ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, today announced that ESET NOD32 Antivirus received five stars in SC Magazine’s review of anti-malware management tools, the highest overall individual ranking awarded in group reviews. The evaluation, which examined 12 anti-malware vendors, declared NOD32 Antivirus a leader in protection, ease of use and management, and awarded the product the maximum honors in five of the six individual categories.

SC Magazine’s competitive review examined how well the tools function in six categories: features, ease of use, performance, documentation, support and value for money. During their testing, SC Magazine was unable to find a single weakness associated with the product, further validating ESET NOD32 Antivirus as a valuable solution designed to proactively protect networks from the growing complexity of both known and unknown malware threats.

“This product is a good investment for almost any size environment,” says Dr. Peter Stephenson, technology editor at SC Magazine. “The NOD32 system, though powerful and feature-packed, is easy to use and intuitive to deploy.”

ESET NOD32 Antivirus software offers consumers and businesses comprehensive protection in a product designed to automatically update behind the scenes without impacting other applications, so users always have the most current protection available. ESET NOD32 Antivirus version 2.7 utilizes ThreatSense® technology, a sophisticated detection system based on advanced heuristics, to proactively identify previously unknown viruses, Trojans, spyware, rootkits and phishing attacks in real time. ThreatSense is built into NOD32’s single scanning engine to provide comprehensive protection so users do not need to rely on additional point solutions for spyware and adware protection. 

“The nature of malware is rapidly changing, with new and complex threats emerging each day. Proactive and easy-to-manage protection has become the only defense alternative," said Anton Zajac, CEO of ESET, LLC. "ESET pioneered the implementation of heuristics proactive methods in 1997, and today the NOD32 Antivirus heuristics engine has become the most efficient tool in detecting new threats proactively. We are proud to be ranked among the best anti-malware solutions by SC Magazine."
