ESET has been protecting home and business computers since 1992. The ESET Multi-Device Security suite includes all of ESET Home products to cover your Windows, Mac and Android operating systems at a cost that is comparable to protecting just one device in previous years. You also get to protect up to 10 devices (any combination of Windows, Mac's or Android installs just as long it is less than or equal to 10 devices) under a single license to make it easy and convenient.

Features

ESET Multi-Device Security is simple, convenient Internet security protection for all your desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones. It covers Windows and Mac computers and Android devices with the following software:

  • ESET NOD32 Antivirus (Windows)
  • ESET Smart Security (Windows)
  • ESET Cyber Security (Mac)
  • ESET Cyber Security Pro (Mac)
  • ESET Mobile Security (Android)

Behind every Internet Security software is a strong Antivirus solution and with ESET you get NOD32 Antivirus for Windows, Cyber Security for Mac and Mobile Security for Android. With these tools you have the ability to pro-actively detect and eliminate threats such as viruses, malware, trojans and spyware. All emails and files (from downloads, emails, USB drive, etc.) are automatically scanned and verified free of viruses. If a virus is found then you are notified right away and given several options including deleting, quarantine, or cleaning (if possible) the files. Emails are also scanned by the antispam filter to remove junk and phishing emails if found.

Firewall

ESET Smart Security and ESET Cyber Security Pro comes with a firewall which offers enhanced protection against malicious traffic and allows your device to stay invisible on public Wi-Fi hotspots. Protect your data against hackers who attempt to scan and access your computer online. Only network traffic that is verified safe will be allowed to access your computer.

Anti-Theft

ESET's Anti-Theft solution lets you locate, track and lock a missing or stolen Android device. If you deem the device unrecoverable or the data too private to take a chance on someone seeing, you can erase the contents of the device as well.

Secure Browser

The built in Banking Protection opens a secure browser for online payments and banking.

Parental Control

Protect your children every time they use the Internet with built in parental controls. Block websites by specific category or individual URL.

Costs

ESET Multi-Device Security is priced to sell at $42.49 for a 6 device license. This includes all of ESET's home products for Windows, Mac and Android. These products on their own for 1 device, cost anywhere from $39.99 to $59.99. This is a very good value especially in today's world where everyone usually owns more than one device.

Guarantee

All of ESET's products come with a 30 day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied with the software you purchase you can contact Customer Service and ask for a refund.

Virus Removal Service

Have a ESET Support Specialist perform a tune-up on your computer to enhance speed and efficiency, or remove a virus. This is done remotely by the Specialist when he connects to your PC. They will then scan and diagnose your computer and then optimize and/or remove all malware. The cost of a tune-up is $35 and virus removal is $50 (this is free if you are already a ESET subscriber). The combined services together cost $75.

Customer Support

All ESET customers with a valid license receives free U.S. based customer support. For home products you have an online security knowledge base full of articles and videos of common problems you can search on. For further help users can submit a support ticket or post in the ESET product forums to report a specific problem and to get an individual support specialist to help. Business support can also be done via ESET Remote Administrator.

ESET Multi-Device Security Review

This is refreshing as there is virtual nothing to complain about with ESET products. I have used Nod32 Antivirus for my business and home computers for almost a decade with no problems and no infected viruses. The original reasons I choose ESET still stand today. They offer a lightweight and powerful antivirus solution which does not hog your computer resources. I barely notice when NOD32 is running a full system scan.

For the last 3 years I have also used ESET Smart Security for my Window Laptops at home. Once again I was pleased and have never had a problem. It is a good product and works very well.

After researching ESET Multi-Device Security I will be switching to this suite of software as soon as my 2 year license expires on my other ESET Products. It makes sense since it comes with both NOD32 Antivirus and Smart Security at a cheaper price and I can install it on all of my home computers without buying additional licenses. I also will now protect my Samsung Android phone (along with my wife's) since it includes ESET Mobile Security.

Pros
Excellent Value. Quality Product and Customer Service
Cons
Does not include iOS software.

ESET Security 2016

I have used Trend Micro and I have been a Norton user. Years ago I had been an ESET user but had switched for some reason when I got a new pc, I think because it had a free trial version of some other antivirus software. After using ESET again I should have stayed. I haven't had a problem with virus protection from emails or files since I have started using it. It finds spam and phishing emails by using algorithms and patterns and moves them to your Outlook trash. Every now and then I check the trash folder before deleting but I have yet to find a false positive. This is very good software at a decent price.

ESET also is very fast and doesn't slow the computer down, this has been one of my main complaints with the other antivirus software I used, very slow. They also seemed to not find all the virus emails and every now and then I would find an email with a suspicious attachment. This has not happened yet with ESET. Good job!

Pros
Excellent Protection - Finds spam and phishing emails - 4 Stars
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
Length of Time Used
3 - 6 Months

ESET Security reviews

A great security suite for your PCs and phone, Android only. I purchased the software online which I have done for the last 3 years as it easier and cheaper to do so than purchasing it at your local office store. I have used all the major internet security packages including McAfee and Norton and I have found that Eset has the software which uses the least amount of my pc resources well still being able to offer the best protection when surfing online and with bad emails.

Pros
Best protection available I found
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Eset Smart Security

Our family computer was just trashed with viruses. I had Norton on there thinking it would do the job but the kids downloaded something and 5 minutes later we had pop-ups galore and a bunch of spyware installed. I disconnected it from our network and tried for almost 3 hours with the Norton antivirus software to get rid of the viruses. No good. It found 27 different malware, it would clean about 10 of them on the first go around but when I rebooted the computer the ones cleaned where right back on. Re scanning and cleaning would result in the same outcome.

I went on my laptop and did a bit of research. I ended up purchasing Eset Smart Security 2016. I loaded it on my usb stick and transferred it to the PC after uninstalling Norton. It took another 2 hours of scanning, cleaning and multiple reboots but the family computer is now officially clean. Eset actually reported that I had over 32 different viruses. I am definitely leaving Eset on the PC as it cleaned everything so it should catch any stuff my kids downloaded that is compromised, not that they are allowed to download files, but you know kids. 

I am pretty impressed. When my subscription on my laptop for Norton expires I plan on switching to Eset on it as well.

Pros
Catches more viruses than Norton. Actually cleaned my infected computer of 35 viruses.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
Length of Time Used
Less than 1 Month

ESET Security

ESET Security for 2016 is a great antivirus and all around protection. If your computer can access the internet then you need a security suite software. If you do not have one then you can probably count the days on your fingers before you will catch a virus. 

My friend got a virus on her work laptop which is a Mac last month. She backed up to iCloud and with Apple's false reputation of no viruses  she thought she was safe. Well she wasn't. Not only do she get a virus that affected her computer to the point where she could not login, her iCloud account was compromised and all her data was wiped. She lost everything. The company she works for even shipped the computer to California to try and recover data and the techs spent 3 days on it with no luck.

Well my computer is a PC and I know not to fool around with malware. I have always had some sort of virus scanner on my PC. 

I use to be a Norton user but when I tried ESET last year I knew I wouldn't be going back to Norton 360. The protection is top notch and the scanner is fast and doesn't seem to slow down my PC like Norton always seemed to do. The firewall seems top notch and I have been warned several times of websites which have been infected with one virus or another.

If you are looking to install a internet security suite then I would recommend ESET. If you don't want to take my suggestion then install at least some sort of protection, even Microsoft's scanner. It's not the best but at least it offers some protection (no email scanner). You will be sorry if you don't!

Pros
ESET makes the best antivirus and security suites
Cons
Muliple machine licenses can get expensive
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
Length of Time Used
1 - 2 Years
