ESET Endpoint Antivirus Review

Stable and cost-effective, but it is resource-heavy and the interface is horrible


What is our primary use case?

This product is installed by my company's technical team as an antivirus solution.

What needs improvement?

The user interface is horrible.

I think that ESET is a little too heavy on the CPU. I have used other products where this is not necessarily the case. It is not the quickest antivirus product.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using ESET for about seven months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It hasn't crashed a single time, so it is stable in that sense. My understanding is that the decision to implement ESET was recent and we will continue to use it in the future.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The whole company is protected by ESET and we have about 120 employees.

How are customer service and technical support?

When we have troubles then we contact our internal IT team.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I personally use the antivirus product that comes with Microsoft Windows.

What about the implementation team?

My IT department pre-installed ESET before I was given the laptop to use.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This is not an expensive product.

What other advice do I have?

Personally, I would just use the Microsoft antivirus that comes with Windows. If you have a special laptop or a special set of use cases then you might install a second antivirus such as this, but for myself, I would not.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
