If you are referring to SSL scanning, the data is decrypted, scanned and then re-encrypted before passing to the broswer.

Thank you Marcos for your reply

As I understood, Secure Browsing feature Encrypt and Decrypt the data online such as financial so if one side data is Encrypted then how the other end Decrypt our data if they are not using the same Eset product.

I see, you are referring to the secure browser. ESET provides memory and keyboard protection from keyloggers in the secure browser.

I'll take "a crack" at answering this.

Browser end-to-end encryption is a function of the browser and the recipient destination web site server using SSL protocol; namely HTTPS. Whether the browser is opened in Banking and Payment Protection secure mode, it has no effect on browser end-to-end encryption except as follows.

Eset's SSL protocol scanning gives it the capability to intercept browser encrypted traffic for malware detection purposes. Eset's Banking and Payment Protection whitelists many banking and financial web sites. If a web site is so whitelisted, Eset will exclude it from SSL protocol scanning. That is, true end-to-end encryption is maintained between the browser on the local device and the recipient destination server. If it is desired that Eset not perform  SSL protocol scanning for a given non-whitelisted financial web site, its certificate can be excluded by setting scan action to Ignore for that web site certificate.

@ marcos & itman

 

Thank you for your clarification. as said earlier we are currently using Endpoint protection probably next renewal will go with Internet security to get the new feature of banking transaction protection.

The secure browser feature is already included in Endpoint, you just need to enable it:
