“Even before its release, test versions of the fifth generation of our flagship security solutions have been downloaded more than four million times,” said Richard Marko, CEO of Eset, in the news release, adding that after thorough testing and months of development, the company is now offering its customers completely new products. “With the new technologies we are incorporating into the products, like ESET Live Grid and our Advanced HIPS, we will be providing even more comprehensive protection than ever before.”

The products offer various new and improved features. Eset listed the top five as: ESET Live Grid (cloud-based reputation and protection technology); a new Removable Media Control with more control of external devices; a Parental Control allowing the blocking of sites that may contain potentially offensive material using pre-defined website categories; an Advanced Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS), offering another layer of security and allowing tech-savvy users to customise their whole system and its individual parts; and a Gamer Mode, which switches to silent mode and disables pop-ups to conserve system resources and enhance a user’s gaming experience.
