Stephen Lim is the Manager of Deputy Department Head for Nomura Research Institute Asia Pacific, which provides IT system development for financial, logistics and manufacturing industries. They focus on building network infrastructure solutions to local Japanese companies and other South East Asian countries since 1984. Nomura has over 100 computers to support customer’s business operations, running day-to-day formulating strategies to strive efficiency.


Being entrusted with huge clientele, Nomura knew the need to be protected by a reliable computer security solution against virus attacks and they continuously preferred ESET for 5 years. Because previously Nomura faced challenges using other antivirus brands due to virus pattern availability where signature updates are not up to date. “Although they might change now, but ESET is constantly efficient throughout the years,” said Stephen Lim. Other than timely signature updates, furthermore Stephen expects quick and fast response from the vendor. His satisfactions are met from ESET free email and telephone support services by a team of dedicated local technical officers.


“The price is competitive,” said Stephen Lim with delight. This inevitably reduces the company operational cost and increases its productivity. “The best part is ESET does not take up much computer resources and it is easy to deploy,” he added on. As a result computer systems can runs faster which is crucial for Nomura to respond to their clients without experiencing downtime. When asked about his favorite ESET function, Stephen liked Device Control which allows disabling of USB devices. He explained from company point of view, company data can be better protected by it. Employees are controlled from duplicating documents as and when they like.



“Overall ESET is an attractive security solution protecting confidential data internally and externally which improves business facilitations.”
said Vasanthan.

Stephen said if another IT manager is considering ESET, they will definitely have a peace of mind. ESET is so easy to use and at the same time efficient, it is a highly recommend product.
