ESET, a cybersecurity provider, has added a new subscription tier for businesses requiring all-in-one prevention, detection, and response. Available immediately, ESET PROTECT Elite delivers enterprises, small and midsize businesses, and channel partners with enterprise-grade XDR for increased visibility and threat-hunting capabilities. The offering, which is available as part of the ESET PROTECT MDR solution, combines multilayered endpoint protection with multifactor authentication, server security, advanced threat defense, full disk encryption, mail security, and cloud application protection.
Leveraging ESET’s 30 years of experience in malware identification and incident response, ESET PROTECT Elite protects against ransomware and zero-day threats by pairing ESET’s human expertise with proprietary cloud-based sandboxing to provide an isolated test environment.
With the launch of ESET PROTECT Elite, there are now five subscription tiers to the ESET PROTECT Platform. The tiers expand on each other, starting with the ESET PROTECT console. The unified cybersecurity platform is available via the cloud and on prem.
Also announced today, ESET has partnered with OPSWAT, a provider of IT, OT, and ICS critical infrastructure cybersecurity solutions, to bring integrated vulnerability and patch management into the ESET PROTECT Platform. ESET Vulnerability and Patch Management has been added to ESET PROTECT Complete and ESET PROTECT Elite (only available on the ESET PROTECT cloud console).
“These strategic investments in ESET PROTECT Elite and ESET Vulnerability and Patch Management arm our channel partners with a modern competitive cybersecurity portfolio reflecting customer needs and addressing future digital security challenges,” commented Ryan Grant, VP of sales, North America, in a press statement. “As businesses lack resources and turn to MSPs, Vulnerability and Patch Management combined with ESET PROTECT enables MSP partners to centralize and automate multiple IT security and management tasks. Through it, they can maintain an up-to-date inventory of their clients and close any infrastructure blind spots that might have existed previously.”
ESET Vulnerability and Patch Management provides automatic and manual patching options for thousands of popular applications, such as Adobe Acrobat, Mozilla Firefox, and Zoom Client, for over 35,000 common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs). With centralized management from the ESET PROTECT Cloud console, organizations can assess security threats and manage patches across the entire network, ensuring timely detection and remediation of the latest zero-day vulnerabilities. Multitenancy functionality enables organizations to enjoy full visibility over the entire network, yet be focused on a dedicated area. Vulnerabilities can be filtered and prioritized based on exposure score and severity using fully customizable vulnerability exception settings—with the option to schedule lower priority patches during off-peak times to avoid disruption.
