ESET Smart Security 4 Voted Best Endpoint Security Solution

San Diego – September 1, 2009
ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, today announced it has been named a winner of Business Solutions magazine Best Channel Product award. The company was recognized as the Best Endpoint Security Solution in the technology category for ESET Smart Security 4, the most advanced edition of integrated security solution combining antivirus, anti-spyware and anti-spam functionality with a personal firewall.

Highlighted in the September 2009 issue of Business Solutions, winners of the Best Channel Product were selected based on the results of the Best Channel Vendor survey. These were determined by resellers with first hand experience with the products, establishing the leading products in multiple technology categories. VARs, consultants, integrators, and ISVs were asked to rate products on a scale of 0 to 5 in five categories- Richness of Features/ Functionality, Product Reliability/ Durability, Ease of Integration, Ease of Upgrade, and VAR’s Ability to Service. With nearly 20,000 votes cast, the Business Solutions survey is one of the largest of its kind.

“ESET certainly earned its spot on the Business Solutions Magazine Best Channel Products list,” said Sue Bresee, publisher of Business Solutions magazine. “ESET rated exceptionally well overall in the Endpoint Security category, but particularly high in Richness of Features and Functionality, and Product Reliability and Durability. Our survey results clearly show that ESET has many satisfied resellers.”

Powered by ThreatSense® technology, an advanced heuristics engine, ESET Smart Security 4 features anti-spam and firewall functionality, which received high marks in usability and effectiveness. ESET’s detection and diagnostic features safeguard users from deceptive forms of malware by digging deeper into the operating system, files and encrypted browser traffic to identify and eliminate hidden malware threats. ESET Smart Security 4 proactively blocks most new malware attacks before they can compromise systems or steal data.

“It has always been ESET’s goal to provide the most reliable, feature rich endpoint security solution on the market today,” said Matthew McManus, vice president of sales, ESET.  “We would not be able to attain an award such as this without the continual feedback and support of our reseller community.  We would like to thank our resellers for their ongoing endorsement, and partnership in attaining this goal.”
