1. Cooperating with Intel(R) technology to enhance protection against ransomware while maintaining system performance
As cyberattacks continue to become more sophisticated and diversified, ransomware infection routes and attack methods are also changing, and various damages have been reported. In response to this situation, ESET (headquartered in Slovakia) partnered with Intel (headquartered in the United States) in March 2022 to strengthen its countermeasures against ransomware. Below, we announced the integration of Intel(R) TDT) into ESET’s defense-in-depth function.
Based on this announcement, V16 now integrates Intel(R) TDT to enhance protection against ransomware. Intel(R) TDT uses a machine learning model to clarify the behavior of clever ransomware that attempts to avoid detection on the computer memory, further strengthening ESET’s multi-layered defense function. Intel(R) TDT also reduces the burden of this enhancement to help detect ransomware while maintaining overall system performance.
* Supports Intel(R) vPro(R) platform, 9th generation Intel(R) CoreTM processors and above.
2. Redesigned user interface for improved operability and visibility The user interface of each screen will be redesigned to improve the operability and visibility of notifications and menus. In addition, a new dark mode is installed, making it possible to select colors that are easy to see depending on the system environment.
