ESET Cyber Security for Mac review

6/06/2014 by


ESET is a Slovakian company, known for its Windows anti-virus software and now offering two versions for OS X – the standard Cyber Security reviewed here, and Cyber Security Pro which adds a personal firewall and parental controls.

The standard Cyber Security provides malware protection through both traditional signature recognition, and ‘heuristics and advanced heuristics’. The heuristics component is now common in Windows malware recognition but is less common with Mac security software at present.

By default during the installation stage the app will enrol your Mac into the company’s Live Grid Early Warning System. This submits suspicious files for analysis, along with anonymous statistical information. You’re also asked if you’d like to enable detection of potentially unwanted applications, as distinct from the hardcore malware. The Windows malware-scanning capability of ESET may explain why our first virus signature database update weighed in at a hefty 47 MB.

The application has a simple-looking interface when first opened, showing Computer icon with ticked green screen when all is well; and likewise for Web and Mail, referring to web browsing, email and anti-phishing protection.
