This week at RSA 2018, we've ushered in a new generation of enterprise security products and services. The standouts include the all-new ESET Enterprise Inspector, an Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solution with features and granularity that surpass anything on the market; and ESET Dynamic Threat Defense, a tool that provides off-premise cloud sandboxing, which leverages machine learning and behavior-based detection to prevent zero-day attacks. There's also a new Anti-Malware Software Development Kit.
If you'd like to know more about this new suite of solutions for your enterprise, don't miss our upcoming webinar, happening next Wednesday (April 25) at 10am PT. You can sign up for that here. The presentation will last about 35 minutes and we'll then open it up for any questions you might have.
As you know, keeping up to date with the latest state, federal, private and even international regulations can be a royal pain at best and near impossible at worst. How do you know which ones affect you? Is compliance really necessary and if so, how are you expected to meet and maintain compliance?
Two days from now, we’re hosting a webinar where we’ll cover the main types of compliance, what’s required to meet compliance rules, and why satisfying the requirements can improve your overall security. We’ll help you get started on compliance initiatives and explain how encryption and two-factor authentication can be important tools in meeting security requirements. A brief Q&A will be included at the end, so you can answer any question you may still have.
On days like this, it can be a real relief knowing there’s at least something you can rely on. Am I right?
Side question: How many toys can you identify in this video?

I've had days like that. I could only make out 6 the others would be a big WAG.
Our research team has just released our much-anticipated report titled, Cybersecurity Trends 2018: The Cost of our Connected World.
We saw many high-profile attacks this year from WannaCry to Experian to Industroyer. These threats impacted millions of individual users and businesses of all sizes. The public now has a greater awareness of threats and their severity but the level of sophistication behind attacks continues to rise.
Our experts anticipate cybercriminals and cyber espionage groups will continue to find new ways to exploit machines – while still sticking to tried and true tactics. However, increased cooperation between law enforcement and private cybersecurity entities could provide some hope, with increasing arrests made and more cybercriminals deterred. Here’s a few highlights of what we see as the top trends for the coming year:
- The rise of attacks on critical infrastructure
- Data and software supply chain issues
- Increased cooperation between law enforcement and cybersecurity experts and organizations
- Democracy hack: Can electoral processes be protected?
- Our privacy in the new age of tech

Thanks Aryeh. Link is fixed and added a link to the WeLiveSecurity post as well.
Today, we've launched the 2018 Edition of our security products for Windows home users.
New and Improved Features
- Connected Home Monitor—Renamed from "Home Network Protection" and added a new feature to scan router-connected IoT devices (Internet of Things) to test for vulnerabilities such as weak passwords, open ports and known services.
- UEFI Scanner—Proactive scanning that runs in the background and only notifies you if a problem is detected.
- License Manager—New feature added to my.eset.com that allows you to view and manage your licenses and connected devices.
- System cleaner—New tool to help restore default settings after a malware infection.
Looking for a small business FDE solution and came across DESlock+ which I believe is a ESET product. When i followed the link to UK supplier i was redirect to ESET website but there is no information on the site about this product and I was hoping to chat to support about which version would best suit my client, and what the pricing options are. Hope you can point me in the right direction.

Worth 30 mins of your time? Cool. You have less than 5 days to complete your mission. Good luck!
The only limitations are: You must be a resident in the United States over the age of 18. Oh and of course, you can't be an ESET employee or the family member of an ESET employee.
Also obviously, if anything (job/family/court order) prevents you from travelling to San Diego for Comic-Con, you won't be able to claim the prize but please do enjoy the demo anyways.
is there a way to get ESET Endpoint AV 6.x to either quarantine or delete potentially unwanted/unsafe applications on detection without user interaction? A notification would be enough to inform the user what happen. I just don't want them to run these application at all, because in most cases there are "cleaner" alternative.
Jun 14, 2017 at 15:38 UTC
First, I would adjust the GUI so users only have the ability to see little or none of the settings.
Next, I would disable notifications, as notifications are things that just notify you about items, but are not critically important. Alerts on the other hand are when threats are detected.
Then I would make sure that password protection is enabled on the endpoint so that users are unable to make any changes to the product settings.
If this doesn't seem to help resolve this particular issue, let me know or reach out to our customer care team and they can walk through the settings to make sure it's set up the way you'd prefer.
Thanks for reaching out!
Jun 20, 2017 at 08:17 UTCThanks for the reply. I'll give this a try.

I heard that version 6.5 brought some upgrades regarding ransomware , so I am reading the what s news document https://download.eset.com/com/eset/apps/business/eea/windows/latest/eset_eea_6_userguide_enu.pdf
But I cannot find any news about it.
Can you tell me what is the difference between 6.4 and 6.5? I mean not graphics
May 11, 2017 at 16:01 UTC
ESET products have been blocking ransomware and have multiple layers of protection in place to prevent it from ever occurring but there were no additional improvements in 6.5 in reference to ransomware specifically. We're always evaluating new technologies to help in the fight against newer forms of malware, these protections are typically backported to previous versions so that all of our users can receive the best possible protection. If you currently have ESET, you want to make sure that you are not straying from the default settings by disabling important components such as Live Grid and advanced heuristics.
IBM QRadar Integration: All major ESET events are exported in LEEF format, which is natively recognized by IBM QRadar. ESET Remote Administrator is shown as a “Log Source” in the IBM QRadar console.
Multi-tenancy: Ideal for large enterprises with one centralized server and different admins managing only endpoints in their respective locations, or for MSPs managing multiple customers from a single server but who need to ensure that customers are not able to see the data of other users.
iOS Mobile Device Management: Integrated directly into ESET Remote Administrator, now supports Apple Device Enrollment Program and offers extended functionalities of app white/black listing, web filtering, device security settings and notifications, anti-theft and others.
ESET Virtualization Security is a VMware, vShield-based solution that allows offloading of AV scanning to a central machine. Paired with ESET Remote Administrator 6, it allows for simple management, automation and control over all protected computers / devices on the network, including physical desktops, servers and virtual machines.
Native support for VMware NSX automation: ESET Virtualization Security natively supports micro-segmentation and automatic task execution that automatically moves infected machines to a different micro-segment, to prevent the spread of malware, and executes scanning. Automatic deployment of ESET Virtualization Security appliances to hosts newly connected to NSX Manager allows instant protection of newly added virtual hosts and virtualized workloads.
Easy to deploy: As soon as ESET Remote Administrator is installed, ESET Virtualization Security appliances can be deployed on multiple hosts at once.
Superior performance: VM infrastructure is about optimizing resources and performance, and ESET’s scanning engine exactly meets these requirements. It is well-known for its low system demands and high speed, leaving more resources for other applications and processes.

As we all know, cyberattacks can be devastating to business. A Deloitte report identified 14 separate impacts which directly affect the bottom line of a business after a data breach. This includes everything from attorney fees and litigation, customer notification, insurance premium increases, and more.
And what’s more, research also shows that 52% of data breaches are caused by human error. So, training employees on security best practices is a must. The problem is, organizations - especially small businesses - lack sufficient resources to provide even basic cybersecurity training. A recent survey found that more than 30% of people have never received any cyber training or education in their workplace.
To help address this problem, we've launched free cybersecurity awareness training that businesses can provide to their employees. Organizations now have an easy way to ensure their employees get the cybersecurity training they need while meeting compliance requirements at the same time.
“It was concerning to hear about stories from our customers, like an IT manager who had to choose to either outfit their office with new printers, or buy cybersecurity training videos,” said Andrew Lee, CEO of ESET North America. “We thought that was ridiculous, and wanted to do something about it. Whether you’re a CEO of a small business, an IT manager, or even an office manager tasked with security, really anyone can use and benefit from our free training,”
All the topics covered in the ESET Cybersecurity Awareness Training are core topics employees need to know, explained in user-friendly language, and can be completed in under 90 minutes.
This includes everything from how to spot phishing emails and password best practices, to lesser-known but important topics like social engineering, two-factor authentication and Internet of Things (IoT) security. At the end of the modules, employees can easily report to their manager they have completed the course, and receive a certificate of completion.
The cybersecurity training modules are available to anyone, anytime, completely free at eset.com/cybertraining and as always, if there's anything I can do to assist, please let me know.

The training is still going on and available. Can you send me a private message with your email and the country you're in, so we can look into what might have happened?
May 14, 2018 at 15:42 UTC
When I signed up it asked about the company and number of employees.
Couldn't you simply send an Email to the "Admin" (me) when someone signs up and again when they complete the process with their results ?
BTW, thanks for making this available !
The threat dashboard seems to have stopped updating. I had a eset threat stopped today and have not seen it come through. Where would that be fixed at?
Apr 25, 2017 at 21:01 UTC
There are a few things you could check:
First thing to check is if the Agent is checking in at regular intervals. It could be that the agent (end-user’s machine) just hasn’t reported back yet.
I'd start with verifying agent communication since that's how ERA gets its info; Agent communication and policy settings.
If the agent is checking in regularly, open the details of that computer and view the threat tab for that individual computer, does the threat show?
Second thing to check is that your filters are set up properly. If not, this could cause certain notifications/alerts to get logged and essentially ignored.
If all looks good and you're still not seeing the threats coming through the dashboard, reach out to our Business Support team. They're pretty friendly and knowledgeable folks.
