  • Unprecedented heuristic analysis capable of discovering new malware threats as they emerge
  • Powerful virtual PC emulation technology enables unpacking and decryption of all types of archives and run-time packing
  • Protects at multiple infiltration points, including HTTP, POP3, SMTP and all local and removable media
  • Enhanced Rootkit Protection
  • Prevents infected files from being opened and executed, and warns on creation of infected files
  • Automatic execution on system startup
  • Supports multiple Terminal Server environments
  • Supports scanning of mapped network disks

Automatic Updates

  • Supports hourly incremental updates to the ThreatSense Technology
  • Includes upgrades of the executable program components, so your NOD is never out of date
  • Most updates are performed behind the scenes and ‘on-the-fly’ without the need for a reboot.
  • Small incremental update of the virus database minimizes network congestion and download times (usually under 50kB).
  • Allows flexible scheduling of updates and selection of various update profiles.
  • Checks for updates of the system at user-defined intervals or even upon the occurrence of a predefined event.
  • Provides intelligent update options for computers on dial-up access.
  • Supports proxy-servers (Basic and NTLM authentication).
  • Provides authentication of the origin of downloaded update files using a digital signature technique.
  • Supports updating from a local site without accessing the Internet, such as from a server within a LAN.
  • The upgrade system can be configured to reflect a multi-level hierarchy and/or other needs of a large company or organization; including the ability to download updates from a local mirror server.
  • Creates updates to a floppy or CD for PCs that are not connected to the network.
  • Configuration settings can be distributed to local workstations from an administrator’s computer.
  • Provides the option to use a configuration file to set system parameters across the network during initial installation and/or subsequent updates.
  • Supports ‘silent mode’ on end-user workstations: notification messages may be forwarded to an administrator only.
  • Allows the settings to be password protected.

Centralized Logging provides information on:

  • On-demand scanner results
  • Relevant events (e.g. performed updates, executed tasks, etc.)
  • Infiltrations detected by resident modules and filters

ESET NOD32 Control Center
This central management console provides full access to ESET NOD32's features, tools and settings and fully integrates all installed system components. These are categorized into four different sections, each of which can be expanded into an easy-to-use directory tree style system. For increased security, the key settings can be password protected to prevent unauthorized access and modification.

Protection against threats from multiple input vectors is provided by the following modules:

Antivirus MONitor (AMON)
An on-access (memory-resident) scanner, which automatically scans files before they're accessed.

An on-demand scanner, which can be run manually on specific files or disk segments. It can also be scheduled to run during off-peak times.

Internet MONitor (IMON)
A memory-resident scanner that runs on the Winsock level to prevent infected files from reaching the computer's disks. It scans internet web-browsing traffic (HTTP) and incoming email via the POP3 protocol.

Email MONitor (EMON)

Document MONitor (DMON)
Utilizes the proprietary Microsoft API for scanning Microsoft Office documents (including Internet Explorer).
