ESET browsing protection.... What exactly is it?


Recommended Posts

I'm curious, is this a type of "sandbox"? 

Or just a really good "anti keylogger"?

Been using it, and it has absolutely no lags or slowdowns.

Everything you want to know about Eset is contained in this whitepaper: https://www.eset.com/fileadmin/ESET/US/docs/about/ESET-Technology-Whitepaper.pdf

Not sure if there is anything on there for secure browser unless I missed it.

As far as I'm aware myself, secure browser is basically banking protection but for the whole browser. Can't remember seeing anything for banking protection in the whitepaper either

OK. Eset really doesn't have a publication on Web Access processing. So I will post the following.

Eset scans all incoming Internet traffic for malicious status that is HTTP/HTTPS based; not just browser based network traffic. It does this using the existing Windows Filtering Platform that allows for network packet analysis. In regards to encrypted HTTPS traffic, Eset decrypts it using its installed Win root CA certficate for inspection purposes.

Additional Web Access protections include:

1. A scanner to scan browser based JavaScript's.

2. Anti-Phishing protection.

3. An internal blacklist of malicious URLs.

Additional Eset protections in this area are:

1. Use of a "hardened" browser mode via its Banking and Payment Protection feature. Anti-keylogging protection is provided in this mode via key scrambling technique.

2. A Parental Control feature.

I presume the only difference with secure browser enabled is keylogging or is there some sandboxing involved

There is no sandboxing used since Eset doesn't have one in contrast to its major competitors. At least, a stand alone sandbox employing virtualization. 

Eset employs an internal sandbox in regards to the hueristic scanning done by its real-time protection.
