This downloadable software program provides proactive protection from online as well as offline threats by checking web browsers, PDF readers, Java-based programs, and other applications for malicious attacks.

When connecting at a public network, it can switch to a Strict Protection mode and make your device invisible to other systems. For securing your private files, you may set up Internet Security 2017 to block the system from accessing storage media.

Finding a missing device is made possible by using ESET's website. While the equipment is on and the program installed, the lost or stolen device is marked on a map based upon Wi-Fi networks in range. This feature also allows you to view who is using your gear by using the device's onboard camera. Moreover, ESET lets you create a message that will be displayed on the device's screen to increase the chances of returning the missing device.
