Release announcement: ESET Endpoint Antivirus/Security 9.1.2051.0

Authors list

This is to inform you that we have just successfully published both ESET Endpoint Antivirus and ESET Endpoint Security 9.1.2051.0  and the installation binaries are henceforth available online on our global website and in the software repository of ESET PROTECT.


Feature summary:


Thin installer for deployment with newest modules.
A radical downsizing of installation binaries by introducing new default installer that will automatically download newest application modules before the deployment is finished. Faster and lighter deployment, compatible with older consoles, no user interaction required, comes with status messaging and seamless protection switch from OS native anti-malware layer.

Complete technical revision of email client protection module.
Full internal re-design for higher performance and compatibility of the protection module that interacts with day-to-day operations of Outlook and other email clients, eliminating often reported mailbox synchronization issues and conflicts.

Support for renamed business offering portfolio and new branding.
In-line with marketing efforts to phase out EDTD and Enterprise Inspector naming, also saying farewell to "Enjoy Safer Security" and adding new "Progress. Protected." tagline.

Improved communication of pending product updates.
User and administrator can differentiate, what kind of update is upcoming, if it relates to regular release, automatic updates or critical hotfix, extended by linking targeted online help content, with reference to specific update changelog.
Administrators will get improved dashboard chart in console, to tell apart endpoints with up-to-date version, those outdated and those waiting for auto-update to be released globally and applied.

Endpoint restart/reboot improvements for managed networks.
Computer reboots forced by remote administrator can be negotiated with local user and scheduled to allow distribution of important updates, for both instant-action and long-term IT-announcement scenarios.
User-oriented scheduling of reboots (with snoozing and countdown) avoids sudden outages with unsaved work, or will not interfere with important events (e.g., presentations) yet will not allow endless reboot delaying on user side.

New concept of product End User License Agreement (EULA) updates.
Every new EULA will apply to any version installed by the user, it will no longer be bound to new release and can be rolled out anytime. It will non-intrusively notify user and track the display state in endpoint, as well as replace the local copy of EULA document.

Automated endpoint issues solving.
Helps to reduce alerting level of Endpoint in console, adding first self-remediation controls to console administrator.
