What's new in ESET PROTECT Cloud

Release Notes

ESET PROTECT Cloud (formerly ESET Cloud Administrator) is a cloud-based management console (offered as a service) that enables centralized management of select ESET products. ESET PROTECT Cloud enables you to manage your company’s network security without the need to buy, install or maintain additional hardware. 

Using the ESET PROTECT Cloud Web Console, you can deploy ESET products, manage tasks, enforce security policies, monitor system status, report on security incidents, and quickly respond to problems or threats on remote computers.

Below are some of the important new features in the currently released version 3.1.5 of ESET PROTECT Cloud:

  • Easier installer package deployment—The initial creation and distribution of installation packages to endpoint computers are now streamlined with an installer package available in 2 clicks. The dialog was simplified while keeping all the advanced options.
  • Dynamic groups for mobile devices—Create custom dynamic groups for your mobile devices, just like for endpoints on other platforms. Some presets are already available.
  • Simplified trial for MSPs—Managed service providers can easily request trials and deploy ESET products for their customers.

For the full list of added, improved and fixed features see the Changelog.


ESET PROTECT Tour

ESET PROTECT Tour for ESET PROTECT Cloud will appear when you log into the Web Console for the first time. You can use ESET PROTECT Tour to familiarize yourself with the main Web Console sections and to deploy ESET Management Agents to computers in your network.

The wizard will give you a basic explanation of important ESET PROTECT Cloud Web Console sections, the ESET Management Agent and ESET security products.

ESET PROTECT Tour also helps you create a deployment package that contains the ESET Management Agent and ESET security product.
