Now, because we already know you absolutely love us in Ireland, we wanted to find out what they think of us in Japan.
And it comes as no surprise, really, that in Japan ESET has been announced the leader in consumer satisfaction by the ASCII General Research Institute (part of ASCII Media Works). ESET product lines were the top choice for Japanese consumer segment customers among paid products: leading in eleven out of twelve categories. ESET is the brand of choice especially for power users, who are often utilising the advanced settings of computers.
ESET has achieved the top 91.00 point score which is more than 16 higher than the closest competitor Symantec and more than nine points higher than AVG, the winner of the paid AV category. ESET security solutions were ranking as best among paid AV products in the category of Response Speed of Resident Software (90.4), Security Performance (87.5), Support (78.9) and came out as the second most popular paid software in cost-effectiveness (73.2).
“Japanese customers are well-known for their high demands on technological quality, service and technical support and we are proud to have received this honor for a second time. Thanks goes to our partner in Japan – Canon IT Solutions, our valued customers and of course the talented ESET team worldwide,” says ESET.
