Release announcement: ESET PROTECT 9.1

Authors list

We would like to confirm the successful release of ESET PROTECT 9.1.

With this release, besides other improvements, we are introducing Advanced Filters in the Computers section that can be useful in larger environments but not only there. 

We have also added a new product tour to help you quickly navigate our solution and speed up the onboarding process. 

Together with Windows endpoint 9.1, we have extended rebooting options, and now it is possible to set up reboots in a way that the end-users can postpone them. 

We are also delighted to come up with native ARM support for macOS

Companies that use EBA sites can appreciate a new functionality that automatically synchronizes sites from EBA to the static group tree in ESET PROTECT. 

We have also changed the names of the following products: ESET Enterprise Inspector was renamed ESET Inspect, and ESET Dynamic Threat Defense was renamed ESET LiveGuard Advanced. 

Quite useful can be functionality, that shows you the list of outdated components of ESET PROTECT Server with information on how to upgrade them. 

We have added support for third-party 2FA apps such as Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, and Authy.

Creation of installers is easier thanks to the reworked installer creation wizard. Last but not least, we have also improved communication around auto-updates, and now it is better explained through the statuses on the Status Overview Dashboard.
