Eset Cyber Security Pro Editor's Review

There was a time Mac users were simply oblivious to the existence of malware and viruses, partially encouraged by Apple’s claim that Mac’s do not fall prey to malicious code. In last few years, that perception has been shattered owing to increasing instances of Macs being hacked and their security getting jeopardized. Now, several PC Security firms make Mac specific antivirus apps. ESET, known for its famous NOD 32 Antivirus and security suites has joined the bandwagon and its Cyber Security suite is aimed at security conscious Mac users. ESET Cyber Security is available in two variants- Standard and Pro. The Pro version comes with nearly all features and tools needed to detect and remove malware.

You can try ESET Cyber Security Pro for 30 days before paying the licensing fee, as it is. It requires a Mac with OS X 10.5 or later versions. Before you can install the suite, the installer will ask you for removal of other security suites. You will also need to disable OS X system firewall. There are 2 installation modes you can choose, namely- Typical and Custom. Activation is required to start using the app.

The Windows versions of ESET security suites are known for their sleek yet minimal looks. ESET Cyber Security Pro has a similar, uncluttered UI. It places an icon on the status bar. It changes color according to security level of your Mac.

On left of the app UI, you will find futures and components listed vertically. On clicking each section, you get available options displayed at right large window. A checkmark icon sits at top right corner from which you can access ‘Frequently Used’ features. It is somewhat unusual that the app does not have an option to alert users about events like scan completion or an error through sound alerts. It offers various scan options to suit user needs.

ESET Cyber Security Pro can detect threats during scans and you can decide what to do with the infected file. You can send it to quarantine, clean it or send to ESET’s Live Grid for analysis. Apart from file in your Mac, the suite scans web traffic and all emails. It also scans various types of removable media devices. It’s ThreatSense Engine has advanced heuristics method to clean malware that is very new.

Apart from protecting your Mac from online and offline threats, ESET Cyber Security Pro blocks unwanted network traffic through a Firewall component. There is an anti-phishing component bundled in too. Its Firewall can block all network traffic you want so. There are auto and Interactive modes too. Most users will prefer to leave it to auto mode though. In the app’s ‘Logs files’ panel, you can view detailed results of scans.

ESET Cyber Security Pro comes with a Parental Control module. It does not have extensive options though. You may set up separate profiles and define allowed categories for each. You may also add some sites to blocked list. It does not have a feature to restrict time to each profile. There is a scheduler component that performs definitions update in the background.

A security app that hogs plenty of system resources may not be desirable to many people. ESET Cyber Security Pro is not much resource hungry and does not take a toll on your Mac’s speed. Macbook users will appreciate its battery-saving mode. One nice thing about the suite is that it can detect malware developed for other OS platforms too, along with Mac malware. It detects a good percentage of Malware in general.

Positive Points:
•    Clean and friendly UI.
•    Detection of malware for other OSes.
•    Battery Saving mode.
•    Extensive security features.

Negative Points:
•    Parental control not robust.
•    No audio alerts for processes.

Conclusion:
ESET Cyber Security Pro is a good security tool for Mac users with decent feature set. It is easy to install and set up. The UI is largely uncluttered and exploring options is a breeze. The default settings work well but advanced users can tweak with Preferences to bolster level of protection. Its Real Time protection component works well as does its heuristics technology. It is not much resource hungry and Macbook users will benefit from using its battery saving mode as well. The app also offers good protection from threats seeping through online routes and external devices. However, there are a few glitches that need to be mended. The app lacks audio alerts for process completion. The app’s Parental Control section is not much extensive either.

Rating:4.0/5
