ESET is heading into 2021 with a renewed focus on malware detection, improved banking protection, and some tweaks to the connected home monitoring tool. Itâ€™s not a huge change to what weâ€™ve seen before, but itâ€™s been a while so letâ€™s dive in and see what the Slovakia-based security company has to offer for the upcoming year.
The interface for ESET Smart Security Premium 2021 is the same as we saw back in previous iterations of this security suite. The left rail features five menu options including Home, Computer Scan, Update, Tools, and Setup.

Home is the primary dashboard that displays a status message indicating whether or not youâ€™re protected. There are also links to the password manager, Secure Data for file encryption, and the Connected Home feature for network monitoring.
