Over the next two months I am working with ESET to share with you my thoughts on their new ESET Smart Security 6 Antivirus & Anti-Theft Software. With so many software companies reporting to provide you with complete protection I have to say that for me I am always excited when I find the real deal, and so far from everything that I have seen, this software package seems to offer so much more than what I have had in the past from using other software packages.
About the Program
ESET Smart Security 6 is an all-in-one Internet Security solution with new Anti-theft feature that locates your missing laptop and gives you tools to help recover it. Personal Firewall and Anti-Phishing keep your data safe from identity theft and other scams.
The ESET Smart Security 6 software program does more than just protect you from viruses, but it also gives you the power to:
- Secure your computer and your assets
- Safeguard your online identity
- Surf the web with confidence
- Enjoy the full power of your computer
- Keep Kids Safe on the Internet
- Customize to fit your needs
In each of the above you are given a ton of latitude with the ESET Smart Security 6 software to completely protect your computer. One of the features that I have never had in the past was the Anti-theft option that is provided. In only a few keystrokes you can rest assured that your computer has a geotag connected to it that can be tracked so if stolen, you can get it back!
The scanning feature in the ESET Smart Security 6 program is very complete and thoroughly examines every nook and cranny of the computer. The computer that I installed this on was fairly new and even with that I still found some issues that needed to be cleaned up and the program made it easy and even automatically cleaned some of the issues up without me even having to raise a finger. The one other thing that I appreciated was that when the scan was running my computer was not so bogged down by this process that I could not be multi-tasking on other things! The ESET Smart Security 6 program also gives you the ability to scan external items as well, so even if they are not physically on the hard drive you can still scan external hard drives, flash drives or other such media which again, in my perspective, is a great asset to have in a protection program.
The program also does a great job at walking you through the steps that you should be taking to safeguard your identity, giving you helpful hints about how to change your passwords, looking for phishing schemes and even configuring a personal firewall for your home that hackers will not be able to easily crack.
One of the pieces of the program though that I was most excited about was the idea of keeping your kids safe on the internet. I have an almost nine year old and I know that I need to set up some definite parameters to curb her use of the computer and the internet, especially for the future. I had no idea what steps to take until I had this program. The program walks you step-by-step through everything that you need to be downloading and thinking about when it comes to your kids. For me, I downloaded Windows Life Family Safety which opened my eyes to setting up an account with my eldest daughter which would give me a ton of piece of mind to know what she is doing, when and how much time she is spending. On top of this though J-Mom and I have the ability to specifically ban internet sites and programs that we feel she should not be having access to. I am just scratching the surface, but I have to thank the makers of ESET Smart Security 6 for educating me completely on this – even though I know I have much still to learn!
All-in-all I have to say that I am VERY impressed with this program thus far. It has performed completely to my satisfaction thus far and I am looking forward to continue diving even deeper into the program to share with you all again in October!
