LiveGuard is a personalized feature that actively protects devices against never‑before‑seen threats. It handles a wide range of file types, including documents, scripts, installers, and executable files. It runs suspicious files in a safe, sandboxed environment within the ESET HQ Cloud.

Password manager

ESET Smart Security Premium generates extra-strong encrypted passwords, stores and organizes them, and automatically fills in forms. With this feature, users need to remember only their master password. It also allows users to log out from every website and secure their browsing history remotely.

Script-based attack protection

The software detects attacks by malicious scripts that try to exploit Windows PowerShell. It also discovers malicious JavaScripts that can attack via browsers. This feature supports Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge.

Ransomware Shield

ESET Smart Security Premium blocks malware that tries to lock users out of their data to demand a ‘ransom’ payment. The solution employs advanced behavior-based detection techniques to protect against malware that tries to damage devices by encrypting as many files as it can locate on local and network drives.
