Connected Home Monitor - Improved device detection

Reveal what is happening on your Wi-Fi network and get the most from your connected devices and smart home set-up. Connected Home Monitor also allows you to view new details for each device – view a device’s IP address, MAC address, name, model and vendor.

For more information, see the Connected Home Monitor Online Help topic.

Connected Home Monitor - Improved troubleshooting

Connected Home Monitor troubleshoots detected network or device issues and provides recommendations for common problems, such as using a weak password on a router. 

For more information, see the Connected Home Monitor Online Help topic.

ESET Secure Data

The ESET Secure Data executable can be copied to a USB flash disk when you select Removable Drive encryption. Once a USB flash disk has been configured for ESET Secure Data, it can be used on any machine that does not have an ESET product installed.

HIPS improvements and extended detection

The new HIPS program module includes Deep Behavioral Inspection, which analyzes the behavior of all programs running on the computer and warns you if the behavior of the process is malicious. 

Real-Time & Machine Learning Protection (formerly Advanced Machine Learning)

Real-Time & Machine Learning Protection adds an additional layer of protection to improve detection and is based on machine learning. Machine learning includes DNA detections, which use models based on machine learning to work effectively with or without a cloud connection. Machine learning algorithms are also a vital part of the initial sorting and classification of incoming samples and of placing them on the imaginary “cyber-security map”.

HIPS exclusions from Deep Behavioral Inspection enable you to exclude processes from the analysis. To ensure that all processes are scanned for possible threats, we recommend only creating exclusions if absolutely necessary.
