ESET Server Security is an integrated solution specially designed for the Microsoft Windows Server environment. ESET Server Security delivers effective and robust protection against various types of malware and provides two types of protection: Anti-Malware and Antispyware.
All ESET products currently use machine learning in conjunction with all of our other defense layers and have done so since 1997. Specifically, machine learning is used in the form of consolidated output and neural networks.
An additional layer protecting users from ransomware. Our technology monitors and evaluates all executed applications based on their behavior and reputation. It is designed to detect and block processes that resemble the behavior of ransomware.
Network Attack Protection
ESET Network Attack Protection improves detection of known vulnerabilities on the network level. It constitutes another important layer of protection against spreading malware, network-conducted attacks, and exploitation of vulnerabilities, for which a patch has not yet been released or deployed.
ESET Botnet Protection detects malicious communication used by botnets, and at the same time, identifies the offending processes. Any detected malicious communication is blocked and reported to the user.
Optional Cloud Sandbox Analysis
ESET Dynamic Threat Defense provides another layer of security for ESET File Security solutions by utilizing cloud-based sandboxing technology to detect new, never before seen type of threats.
ESET Exploit Blocker monitors typically exploitable applications (browsers, document readers, email clients, Flash, Java and more), and instead of just aiming at particular CVE identifiers, it focuses on exploitation techniques. When triggered, the threat is blocked immediately on the machine.
Behavioral Detection – HIPS
ESET’s Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) monitors system activity and uses a pre-defined set of rules to recognize and stop suspicious system behavior.
Advanced Memory Scanner
ESET Advanced Memory Scanner monitors the behavior of a malicious process and scans it once it decloaks in memory. Fileless malware operates without needing persistent components in the ﬁle system that can be detected conventionally. Only memory scanning can successfully discover and stop such malicious attacks.
Protection for Linux servers
ESET provides installers for the most popular distributions of Unix-based systems, including the ‘Ready’ variations of RedHat and SuSE that comply with the File-System-Hierarchy standard. It requires no external libraries except for LIBC.
Office 365 OneDrive Storage
After registration is done on a single server, ESET has the ability to scan OneDrive to provide visibility and monitor the trusted source of company storage.
AMSI/Protected Service Support
ESET products leverage the Antimalware Scan Interface (AMSI) to provide enhanced malware protection for users, data, applications, and workload. In addition, it utilizes the protected service interface that is a new security module built into Windows that only allows trusted, signed code to load and better protect against code injection attacks.
ESET’s in-product Sandbox assists in identifying the real behavior hidden underneath the surface of obfuscated malware.
The following table explains the features available in the ESET Server Security. In larger networks, you can use ESET PROTECT to remotely manage ESET Server Security.
True 64-bit product core
Adds higher performance and stability to the product core components.
An award-winning and innovative defense against malware. This leading-edge technology prevents attacks and eliminates all types of threats, including viruses, ransomware, rootkits, worms and spyware with cloud-powered scanning for even better detection rates. With a small footprint, it is light on system resources while not compromising performance. It uses layered security model—each layer, or phase, has a number of core technologies. The pre-execution phase has technologies such as UEFI Scanner, Network Attack Protection, Reputation & Cache, In-product Sandbox and DNA Detections. The execution phase technologies include Exploit Blocker, Ransomware Shield, Advanced Memory Scanner and Script Scanner (AMSI). The post-execution phase uses Botnet Protection, Cloud Malware Protection System and Sandboxing. This feature-rich set of core technologies provides unrivaled protection.
ESET LiveGuard Advanced
An ESET Cloud-based service. When ESET Server Security detects suspicious code or behavior, it prevents further threat activity by temporarily putting the suspicious file into ESET LiveGuard Advanced quarantine. A suspicious sample is automatically submitted to ESET LiveGuard Advanced server for analysis by advanced malware detection engines. Your ESET Server Security then receives analysis results. The suspicious file is dealt with depending on the result.
Allows multiple server management from a single location. Joining workstations to nodes will offer additional automation of management because you can distribute one configuration policy across all cluster members. The creation of clusters is possible using the node installed, which can then install and initiates all nodes remotely. ESET server products are able to communicate with each other and exchange data, such as configuration and notifications, as well as synchronize data necessary for proper operation of product instance groups. This allows for the same product configuration for all cluster members. Windows Failover Clusters and Network Load Balancing (NLB) Clusters are supported by ESET Server Security. Additionally, you can add ESET Cluster members manually without the need for a specific Windows Cluster. ESET Clusters work in domain and workgroup environments.
Automatic detection and exclusion of critical applications and server files for smooth operation and performance.
Excludes specific processes from Anti-Malware on-access scanning. Anti-Malware on-access scanning may cause conflicts in certain situations, for example during a backup process or live migrations of virtual machines. Processes exclusions help minimize the risk of such potential conflicts and improve the performance of excluded applications, having a positive effect on the overall performance and system stability. The exclusion of a process/application is an exclusion of its executable file (.exe).
