We are proud that the ESET NOD32 antivirus technology has earned more consecutive Virus Bulletin VB100 awards than any other antivirus solution. Thanks to our talented team of developers and malware researchers, ESET NOD32 has never missed an “In-the-Wild” worm or virus since Virus Bulletin started testing back in May 1998,” says ESET‘s Security Technology Analyst Jan Vrabec.

ESET has released the new fifth generation of its flagship products ESET Smart Security 5 and ESET NOD32 Antivirus 5 in September.
