ESET, the leader in proactive
threat protection, today unveiled its new online scanning service.
Powered by award-winning ESET NOD32 Antivirus software, ESET Online
Scanner is a free Web-based service that enables computer users to
perform a comprehensive system scan to check for and clean viruses,
spyware, and other malware—without uninstalling their existing
antivirus solution. With Online Scanner, non-ESET users can get a
“second opinion” on the health status of their computers and determine
if their existing malware solution is really performing up to snuff.

“It’s
a pleasure for us to offer the public the power of NOD32 in our new
Online Scanner service,” said Miroslav Trnka, co-founder and CTO of
ESET. “ESET believes in empowering users to make the best AV buying
decision, and we’ve offered free 30-day trial licenses for many years
that include full product functionality. While it doesn’t replace the
trial version, the new Web scanner takes this try-before-you-buy
philosophy a step further by allowing users to test our product in
real-time without removing their existing protection.”
