ESET Smart Security was designed to be complete solution in the field of computer protection against infiltrations and attacks. Eset Smart Security offers more than just a sum of its parts - it is synergy that matters most. If all components are used simultaneously, the effectiveness of the whole program is multiplied. ESET Smart Security unifies all its functions to create a complex security solution.
ESET Smart Security is based on three basic pillars:
ESET NOD32 Antivirus + Antispyware
· This component is in fact an improved version of the award-winning scanning engine of NOD32 Antivirus. With respect to program's unprecedented scanning speed, the following improvements have been made:
· Improved system of cleaning and deleting infiltrations. The antivirus system now intelligently cleans and deletes infiltrations with no need for user interaction.

· Update optimization, smaller update package size than in version 2.7, more effective management and protection of update files against damage.
· Email protection for users of Outlook Express.

· Ability to recognize the character of network connections established by various types of infiltrations and ability to automatically terminate them.
