It has been awhile since we last conducted a blog giveaway and this time, we are very happy to partner with Version-2, the exclusive distributor for ESET, to give away 10 sets of ESET Hampers [inclusive of 1-User 1-Year ESET Smart Security and ESET Mobile Security].
ESET, founded in 1992 at Slovakia central Europe, is an award-winning global vendor of security software for corporate customers and households and is in the front lines of countering emerging cyber threats.

An industry leader in the proactive detection of a broad range of computer threats, ESET is a highly integrated security solutions that has a unique licensing system which allows users to mix and match the computer protection for systems running on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Why We Recommend ESET?

IT-security solutions vendors have to provide maximum protection for users without affecting the performance of their system. However, in the midst of tough market competition, ESET has achieved higher performance and have edged past larger and better-known competitors. You can find out how ESET stacks up against the competition in tests by leading independent testing organisations and what differentiates ESET from other Internet security solutions that are available in the market today via the following link: http://www.eset.sg/home/compare/

ESET Smart Security

There are a host of security features that ESET Smart Security offers and one feature that we want to especially highlight is the Anti-Theft feature that allows users to stay safer by tracking and locating their laptops should it go missing. The Anti-Theft feature has a sub-feature known as the Laptop Activity Watch and it is able to monitor thieves via built-in camera, collect snapshots of the missing laptop’s screen, and saves all recent photos and snapshots to the web interface at http://my.eset.com

Another sub-feature of the Anti-Theft is the One-way Messaging which makes it possible to send a message to your missing laptop to contact the finder.

Apart from the Anti-Theft feature, one really impressive advantage of using ESET Smart Security is its small system footprint. Hence, this would allow users to stay connected without slowing down the system and it offers maximum protection without sacrificing system resources that could otherwise be used for playing, working, or internet browsing.

ESET Mobile Security

With ESET Mobile Security, users can now enjoy their time online protected with proven technology that is developed especially for mobile devices. Should users lose their phone, they can take advantage of powerful tools to help them find it and protect its contents. Some of the free features of ESET Mobile Security include Antivirus Protection, Detection of Potentially Unwanted Apps, On-Demand Scanning, GPS Localisation, Remote Lock, and Remote Siren.

Other than the free features that are available on ESET Mobile Security, there are premium features which you can unlock through an in-app purchase.
