ESET NOD32 used to be my best choice among the security suites for quite a long time. NOD32 Antivirus and Smart Security raised the level of overall competition in the security industry by offering very light weight products. The competitors had to revamp their products in order to look slim and light. But so far very few security companies have been able to beat NOD32 in terms of speed and efficiency.
ESET NOD32 has finally released NOD32 Antivirus 5 beta and NOD32 Smart Security 5 beta. Let’s look at some of the features added in the new security products:
Parental Control is a new feature in NOD32 Smart Security 5 which will keep your family safe from undesirable websites.
Cloud powered reputation engine makes it faster to scan for malware and provides enhanced detection rates with cloud based whitelisting.
Gamer Mode lets you run the security suite and the antivirus in silent mode. NOD32 will not disturb you with pop ups and other informational messages during your gaming time.
Enhanced Media Control prevents the spread of malware through removable media like USB flash drives, CDs, DVDs etc.
Smarter firewall defends against remote attacks with more robust traffic filtering.
Improved Antispam blocks spam with an even higher level of precision and added log capabilities.
Supported Operating Systems include Windows Home Server, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. Please note that since the antivirus and the security suite are in beta, there may be bugs in the products which may cause some problems for you. So it is never recommended to install these products on your production computers.
