ESET NOD32 and ESET Smart Security Antivirus Solutions Receive Intel Multi-Core Technology Certification

SAN DIEGO – November 17, 2009
ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, announced today that it has received Intel Multi-Core Technology and Security Certification as part of the Intel® Certified Solutions Program, powered by SpikeSource. In addition, ESET security software products are included in the Intel® Business Exchange, a software marketplace for small and medium-sized enterprise customers.

As a certified solution, SpikeSource has tested ESET Smart Security and ESET NOD32 Antivirus products for security and performance optimization for the latest Intel Multi-Core Technology. This rigorous testing reduces vendors' development costs and end-user support, while providing customers with a solution optimized to run on Intel hardware.

"Being recognized as an antivirus solution certified for Intel Multi-Core Technology is independent confirmation of our high performance and ability to help businesses become more productive and effectively compete in today's environment," said Darin Andersen, chief operations officer, ESET, LLC. "The rigorous testing process required to receive Intel Certification further validates our commitment to providing proven threat protection that enables users to experience optimum performance and protection."

Users of ESET's solutions will benefit from its light footprint, fast scanning engine and advanced detection methods that provide effective malware protection without compromising system performance. Powered by ThreatSense® technology — an advanced heuristics engine — ESET NOD32 Antivirus and ESET Smart Security provide proactive detection of malware not covered by even the most frequently updated signature-based products. Unlike traditional approaches, ESET solutions decode and analyze executable code in real-time, using an emulated environment.

The Intel Certified Solutions Program provides convenient and easy access to cutting-edge software built to take advantage of Intel's latest platforms and technologies. By selecting an application that displays the Intel Certified Solutions Program logo, businesses can be confident that the software company has taken advantage of the benefits of running the application on an Intel platform delivering better performance and unique capabilities other software applications may not deliver. Additionally, the Intel Business Exchange directory grants immediate access to Intel® Software Partner Program solutions targeted at small and medium-sized business users.
