We use it for some of our 3rd party companies. It's cheap but doesn't have great detection rates compared to others. Take that for what it is worth.

adding a little more to the thread. About a week ago, when I was updating Genshin Impact.. at around 5 gb downloaded, ESET detected the update as potential threat. It blocked updating and I had to start over. Opened ESET and disabled Computer Protection and Internet Protection. After the update finished, turned on ESET again, it scanned Genshin.. thankfully, after auto consulting with it's database, ESET decided that the update as not a threat.

I have lots of experience with ESET. It goes for the "better safe than sorry" method. I don't think that is a bad thing, and I have not yet seen them miss a threat.

sort of agree with that method as well. It would sometimes halt new programs, check Livegrid for info, then let the new program go through if there's no bad info about it. Eset seems to be using Livegrid as an extension of it's database - looks like ESET is stronger and more effective when I'm connected to the net.
