Linux users are a special breed of computer users. These guys are the DIY kids of the internet. ESET for Linux works hard for you in the background, protecting you from clandestine opposition that's always looking for unsuspecting victims on the internet.
Your job is to worry about how you’ll ethically learn how to hack your WiFi router using Virtual Machine Box and the various open-source apps for Linux that you can use to accomplish this task.
Our software package includes antivirus software that protects you in real-time and anti-malware and anti-phishing software, which helps to ensure that you won’t be a victim of a denial-of-service(DOS) attack or the like. We can’t promise you that you’ll never have an attack successfully ran on you if you use our product since there are always new threats every day and it would be unethical for us to make this promise. We can, however, say that your Linux machine is safer with our antivirus software protecting it versus not having it running on your system.
Our ESET NOD32 Linux proprietary software comes with ransomware apart from virus protection and spyware protection. This is a great feature since most ransomware attacks are built on open-source software support. In layman's terms, if you're a Linux user, you're an open-source user, and with that freedom comes a lot of responsibility on your part.
Picking a suitable antivirus is of paramount importance if you don’t want to find yourself a victim of fraudulent open-source software.
Our software comes with advanced firewall protection. This is especially beneficial to Linux users who are always online as the software makes sure that your device is safely connected to the internet at all times.

You’ll use your device with a certain degree of comfort, knowing that ESET is working hard in the background to protect you and your Linux machine.
Our NOD32 platform makes running system diagnostics as easy as counting from one to three. We created the software so that you can do a system scan and clean up locally and for your online-based files.

Linux, while able to function without the internet, is a platform that’s heavily online-based even before cloud computing became an actual thing. Our antivirus protects you from online threats such as firewall attacks.
Privacy and Security
Privacy is a big issue in today's digital economy. When you think about internet security, among other things, you need to consider ad blocking, as some sites run intrusive ads that often carry malware with them. It would help if you felt your identity is being protected when browsing online. Does your browser have adequate protection? Can you browse anonymously with a VPN?
While Linux OSes like Ubuntu and Mint use Firefox as a default browser, having additional internet security from a trusted brand like ESET doesn’t hurt.
Linux was built with privacy and freedom for the internet user in mind, but all good things are susceptible to corruption. The very same tools that help keep you safe are the same ones that unscrupulous characters use online to steal your data.
