ESET heeft versie 9.0 van NOD32 Antivirus en Smart Security uitgebracht. Waar de eerste alleen beschermt tegen virussen, spyware en rootkits, heeft het tweede programma ook een firewall en spamfilter. Een licentie voor NOD32 Antivirus kost 29,50 euro, terwijl er voor Smart Security 41 euro afgetikt moet worden. Als er een licentie voor verschillende jaren en/of computers wordt afgenomen, daalt de prijs per stuk echter flink. ESET heeft de volgende verbeteringen in versie 9.0 aangebracht
What's new in ESET Smart Security 9 and ESET NOD32 Antivirus 9?

Continue reading below for an overview of the new and improved features. Version 9 now has native support of 64 bit code and is compatible with Windows 10 and its new security features.
Botnet Protection (Improved)
Network signatures allow fast identification and blocking of malicious traffic coming to and from your devices that are related to bots and exploit packs. This enhanced feature of Botnet Protection is added automatically to the Botnet Protection module and does not require any user interaction.
Banking and Payment Protection (New – Smart Security only)
Banking & Payment Protection ensures that all online transactions are protected in a trusted and secured environment. ESET Smart Security contains a built-in list of predefined websites that will trigger the ESET protected browser. The secured browser encrypts the communication between your keyboard and browser to provide additional security against keyloggers for banking transactions, entering credit card numbers and other sensitive personal data.
You can add a website or edit the list of websites in the Advanced setup screen (F5) →Web and Email →Banking & Payment protection. You can also open the secured browser directly from Home or Tools tabs in the ESET GUI, or by opening the installed application ESET Banking & Payment protection.

GUI redesigned (New)
