This sounds better than the PCmag review
Just an explanation to the only bad point: "Leaving all the cleaning to the application will cause a drop in its efficiency. I could not find a way to view non-eliminated files that have been detected by the application (quarantine stores deleted elements and log file shows cleaned items)."
I assume the reviewer must have used 19.5% of viruses in the test. In such case, ESS/EAV leaves the decision to the user because quarantining infected files might have adverse effect on the system functionality.
It claims to be a review of ESS but only reviews the NOD32 features. Where's the review of the firewall and the anti-spam features?
There is a link at the bottom of the review to "Firewall and anti-spam" but it doesn't lead to anything. I wonder if they'll add this later?
You can find them from here:
I gotta say it. At some point ESS will be the finest security suite on the market. It's awesome in it's beginning stages.
Well honestly, I would like to see some cookie management to compliment the antispyware.
Most reviews including the pcmag review tends to see cookie management as being a part of the antispyware attack.
Which explains detection rates because the nod32 antispyware doesnt detect data miners\tracking cookies which is why I feel it gets low reviews in some cases.
The firewall itself I have mixed feelings about it, one IM used to a more technical firewall which gives me more control.
I mean they have a few things to work out on what it does on default, but Im a set it myself type of guy so my first instinct was to go in and check the settings.
As far as cleaning, again it seems that the Nod32 staff have commented on that. I tend to like their approach on that, being that I want to be involved in what a program does and doesnt delete on my system.
Im not a set it and forget it type of person, but Im not most people and most people want a preset system that does everything for them so they dont have to participate. I find security systems like that to be the weakest of the all.
And I find that most reviews tend to evaluate on the preset do it for you so you dont have to participate guidlines.
Good review , but the Eset still has very much to improve his new products and can do it if he wants it and it will have disposed to face this reality.
