We have ESET Cloud Administrator for SMB users and ESET Security Management Center for enterprise users. As for home users, it's possible that we'll enable partial management of certain settings via web in the future but that's not planned to be done any time soon to my best knowledge. 

It would be awesome for home users, kaspersky has this and it makes it so much easier to manage all devices connected to my account.

I would like to see users to be able have more options for the firewall.  Let users have more control.

Parental controls to block porn images as well.  Allow us to force safe search.

1, Unfortunately, this is a very vague description which doesn't say anything about what features / options you are missing.
2, I don't think there's any software that would perform optical recognition of images. And blocking images just based on the full url is simply impossible because of the infinite number of images on the Internet or thousands of new images taken by cameras every second that can be uploaded to the Internet at any time. Not to mention that optical recognition of images in real-time would substantially slow down browsing.

Description: A Manage application section like Kaspersky or an Application network rules section like Kaspersky or maybe both.

Details: Currently there is no way to know which programs I ran on my PC that was trusted by Eset or not. By having an Application manager it would make really easy give a detailed representation. Eset already kind of has this but that's for running processes only but not for all the products and also this window just shows information but I can't interact with it like it's possible in Kaspersky.


And for Firewall, it's possible to add rules for specific programs of course but it would be better if there was list of all applications to show what is set to allowed by Eset and what not. This should be interactive too so if a user want to deny let's say "Cleaner" internet connection then the he/she would select Ccleaner from the list and deny it internet access instead of the current situation where user need to manually browser the program to block it in Firewall. The current implementation should always be there of course but my proposed interface would make everything much easier. Also a program can have multiple files that access to the internet. From this list it would be much easier to find that out. So, overall user experience would improve a lot.


To have a closer look you may try installing Kaspersky to understand how this two mode works on their product. I don't want Eset to have the exact same to same that Kaspersky has but the basic idea should be the same.
I love Eset because it's great product and super lite. But I want Eset to have these features. I'm sure it's not just me but everybody would appreciate it and it will make the product even better.

Description: ESET Sandbox + ESET Auto SandBox

 

Details ; I Want add ESET sandBox  + ESET auto SandBox like avast sandbox +  auto sandbox

The avast! Sandbox is a special security feature which allows you to run potentially suspicious applications automatically in a completely isolated environment. Programs running within the sandbox have limited access to your files and system, so there is no risk to your computer or any of your other files. This feature is connected to the FileRep cloud feature which identifies new files for additional analysis. So now we are able to warn you even before we have had the opportunity to examine this malware in our Virus Lab.

Im not sure how but eset does use some sandbox technologies @Marcos might be able to explain them more. Obviously currently eset doesnt allow users to manually run things in a sandbox

There are currently no plans to have a sandbox like Sandboxie. However, Advanced heuristics runs files in a virtual environment and compares the characteristics and behavior with detections that "describe" what is considered malicious. Moreover, business users can take advantage of ESET Dynamic Defense which is an actual cloud sandbox. Also we're working on a sandboxed scanner which should be one of the upcoming additions in ESET's products.

I don't think so. For instance, Windows Defender doesn't have any at all.

Microsoft added Tamper Protection in Win 10 1903. Oddly, it has to be manually enabled.

I keep looking for a published bypass if it, but so far so good for Microsoft. It also appears to "have held its own" against the latest and greatest version of Trickbot which tried its darnedest to disable it:

These new methods perform the following steps, with most, if not all, being blocked by TamperProtection if enabled:

Such can not be said for MalwareBytes or Sophos.

Sorry don't mean to sound rude, Its nothing personal 😂

Sandbox! Like avast!  when was the last time you visited avast's forum, more issues then ever before,  crippled add-ons that don't do a thing but causing problems.

avast sandbox is pure GARBAGE👎BSOD's, freezes and leaks  and its getting worse every update, I just moved from avast after 20 years.

ESET is great as is I wouldn't change a thing and avast use to be good until became  bloatware full of useless add-ons that causing more grief then good.

Don't ask for something you will regret.

 

 ESET has more goods than enough , live it alone 😀

Guys, please avoid using expressive words. No matter what software you take, be it OS, AV, or whatever, each has some bugs and issues that the vendor should attempt to fix as soon as possible.

I never thought to state windows 10 now also has its own sandbox although its not included in the home version of windows and some system requirements are required

I dont think eset will launch a  seperate sandbox and marcos has said there are currently no plans. Eset tends to focus on the main things which is why a lot of people prefer it as some AVs offer too many extras the system becomes slow. So I hope if they ever decided to it became optional.

As mentioned before though, eset does use sandbox technologies e.g. running unknown things through one to check for suspicious activity. Also as you mentioned if you are on the latest windows 10 pro or enterprise and have the right hardware you already have access to a sandbox courtesey of windows

I'm not sure if this was suggested before or is already a functional feature that I don't see it but I just came from Outpost Firewall PRO and there was a small feature that was need and I think ESET could do something similar.

Because we do change or updated/upgraded software, sometimes some of the entries  are no longer valid or the changes resulting in triggering different part of firewall leaving the old entries useless,  would be need to have "purge" function like Outpost did to get rid of none existent or old entries, if that makes sense.

We will probably add the date/time of last rule application which will help you find obsolete rules.

Is there still a possibility that the firewall rules will be made more user friendly in the future?

I used to have it set to manual but use automatic now but was looking at maybe going back - However sometimes I had to play around with rules and it was hard to do this because the design was not user friendly, mainly because the firewall judges rules by an order. Allowing them to be organised by names and having an icon to represent the program certainly would make this easier to use. Also the fact that "Allow communication for" comes before the name of the program makes it much harder with the text not needed as it could just start with "Chrome" rather than "Allow communication for Chrome."

Sorry I do know this has been brought up a few times.

Firewall rules will continue to be evaluated in the order they appear in the list. In old versions (like v3/v4), they were evaluated from less general rules to more general rules and blocking rules had priority over permissive rules, however, this approach had issues which were solved by the current system. Other than that, firewall should be improved in the future for better user experience.
