ESET NOD32 and Smart Security 7 betas released

ESET NOD32 and Smart Security 7 betas released

ESET has unveiled the first public betas of its NOD32 Antivirus 7 and Smart Security 7 products.

The Smart Security suite now includes a Vulnerability Shield to better
protect your PC from known network issues, while its Anti-Theft service
gains the ability to track what’s happening on your stolen hardware via
regular screen captures.
Both packages now include an advanced memory scanner which checks an
application image in RAM, so bypassing many of the tricks malware might
use to hide its real code.
A new Device Control module builds on the previous Removable Media
functionality, allowing you to take complete control over the ways your
users can access and work with any given device type.
The Antiphishing module now blocks scam sites, and allows feedback
(both reporting of suspect sites and false positives) from users.
Improved compatibility means both packages are now fully compatible
with Windows 8, while the mail plugin supports Windows Live Mail and
Office 2013.
Perhaps best of all, ESET are running a contest where they’re offering
100 free licenses a week between June 11 and July 11, 2013 (500 in
total). And this isn’t the usual kind of beta testing contest, either,
where you have to submit 250 lengthy bug reports to stand the faintest
chance of winning anything: just installing Smart Security 7 is enough
(see the details on the ESET site).
If you don’t have time to install NOD32 Antivirus 7 or Smart Security 7
right now, though, that’s not a problem, there’s plenty of time for
testing: the current builds don’t expire until the end of October 2013.
