In-the-Wild viruses are real viruses that have been reported to Wildlist organizations by at least two independent reporters. ESET NOD32® Antivirus is the only solution in the world that has never missed an In-the-Wild virus since the inception of testing in May 1998.
ESET holds the record number of the highest Advanced+ awards in proactive detection by AV-Comparatives. No other vendor was able to match this achievement to date.
Proactive detection refers to the way ESET security solutions detect malicious programs that have not yet been discovered and catalogued. The scanning engine is trained to detect malware without relying on the updates of the antivirus signatures, i.e. catching malware by its intrinsic "malicious" behavior.
Every day cyber criminals create thousands of new malware variants, making it difficult for an antivirus solution to strike the right balance between detecting these emerging threats and flagging legitimate programs. ESET’s unique ThreatSense® technology strikes this balance, closing the vulnerability to emerging threats while keeping false positives to a minimum.
Awarded by Pcmag, Cnet, Pc-Home, Av-comparitives and microsoft itself Both ESET Smart Security and ESET NOD32 Antivirus have earned an array of accolades recognizing its ability to deliver comprehensive security for home and business users.
