ESET Wins 2012 SC Magazine Reader Trust Award - ESET Smart Security Achieves Notable Industry Accolade for Best Anti-Malware Management

ESET today announced it has been recognized with SC Magazine’s 2012 Reader Trust Award as the company with the Best Anti-Malware Management solution. The announcement was made on February 28, 2012 at the SC Awards Gala, held in conjunction with the annual RSA Conference in San Francisco.

ESET won for Best Anti-Malware Management after proving the success and overall impact of ESET Smart Security to the Reader Trust Voting Panel. Winners were chosen by its North American voters, who are SC Magazine readers that are high-level IT security executives (CISOs, CIOs, VPs, etc.) working for organizations across various markets, including finance, health care, government, education and more.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by SC Magazine readers, as it highlights our commitment to provide business anti-malware solutions that are easily manageable while remaining very effective.

Our goal has always been to provide effective malware protection without compromising system performance, and we’re honored to have this approach recognized by such a technically sophisticated community.”


Andrew Lee, CEO, ESET North America

The Reader Trust Voting Panel has volunteered its time and experience to carefully consider the contenders in each category to cast votes. This panel represents a cross-section of SC Magazine leadership, which is comprised of large, medium and small enterprises from all major vertical markets, including financial services, health care, government, retail, education and other sectors. Functionality, manageability, ease-of-use and scalability of the product or service, as well as customer service are considered during the judging process.

“This is one of the most exciting and illuminating award categories, as the finalists have to demonstrate the unique combination of strength in product, organization and fight against cybercrime to secure the vote of our readers.

Congratulations to ESET for winning Best Anti-Malware Management
by impressing not only SC Magazine editors but the magazine’s real judges: the readers.”
