Apart from being the fastest growing antivirus solution in the world, ESET NOD32 leads the industry in terms of proactive detection and outperforms its competitors. It has a very small footprint needing minimal resource utilisation, taking up limited space on the user's computer and allowing for faster performance. It also manages upgrades on its own and the user has just to set and forget it.
ESET NOD32 was recently awarded its 62nd VB100 % award from Virus Bulletin, a widely-respected independent comparative testing group. ESET was in fact the first security vendor to reach the 50-award milestone.
