A few weeks ago I was sent two copies of ESET Smart Security 6, one for Windows and one for Mac. We installed the anti-virus software on two machines at the office and have been using it since without problems. Somewhere along the line, anti-virus software got a bad name, which resulted in people being worried about things crashing, systems going slower and/or problems with Internet. This has not been the case with ESET Smart Security 6, I wanted to clear that up.
One thing that I felt I would tell you about is a new social feature that is included in the software – a social media scanner. The name says it all, this new feature scans your social profile and notifies you of malicious links and potentially harmful content. Furthermore, it checks your wall, newsfeed and private messages (even when you’re not logged in) and goes a step further and protects your Facebook friends. Quite an awesome feature considering just how risky Facebook is these days with all the profile hi-jacking, applications and such.
There are 7 core features that I’d like to mention:
These 7 features will ensure that your time spent online is safe and secure. I started using a Mac a few years ago and have never had a virus or the likes so I was quick to assume that I didn’t need anti-virus software, BUT, with social networks and phising schemes, I quickly realised that I was wrong and that I should be using some software to protect myself and this is where ESET Smart Security came in and I’m happy to be using it.
WANT A LICENSE?
Leave a comment below telling me which of the 6 features above is most important to you and why?
I have 5 licenses to give away!
