Complete network visibility


Full security management

Security management automation

Prevention to response

The management of our Endpoint Products is combined with our Endpoint Detection and Response solution – ESET Enterprise Inspector – and our sophisticated cloud sandbox – ESET Dynamic Threat Defense – into a single easy-to-use management console. ESET Full Disk Encryption is available as console’s add-on.

Single-click threat remediation

From the threats tab, you can create an exclusion, submit files for further analysis, or initiate a scan from a single click.

Customizable notification system

The notification system features a full “what you see is what you get editor” where you will be able to fully configure notifications to be alerted on the exact information you want to be notified about.

Customized reporting

ESET PROTECT provides over 170 built in reports and allows you to create custom reports from over 1000 data points.

Fully automated VDI support

A comprehensive hardware detection algorithm is used to determine the identity of the machine based on its hardware. This allows automated re-imaging and cloning of non-persistent hardware environments.

Use cases


Organizations need to know when an unapproved software has been installed, then are required to remediate the software afterwards.


  • Set up a dynamic group within ESET PROTECT to look for a specific unwanted piece of software.
    Create a notification to alert the IT department when a computer meets this criterion.
  • Set up a software uninstall task in the ESET Security Management Center to execute automatically when a computer meets the dynamic group criteria.
  • Set up a user notification that automatically pops up on the user’s screen indicating that they committed a software installation violation by installing the above software.

The ESET difference

Single Pane of Glass

All ESET Endpoint products running on Windows, macOS, Linux can be managed from a single ESET PROTECT instance. In addition, ESET PROTECT supports full Mobile Device Management (MDM) of Android and iOS devices.

Flexible Install

ESET PROTECT can be installed on Windows, Linux or via Virtual Appliance. After installation all management is done via a web-console, allowing easy access and management from any device or operating system.

Granular Policy Control

Organizations can set up multiple policies for the same computer or group and can nest policies for inherited permissions. In addition, organizations can configure policy settings as user-configurable, so you can lock down any number of settings from the end-users.

SIEM Support

ESET PROTECT fully supports SIEM tools and can output all log information in the widely accepted JSON or LEEF format.
