ESET goes gold!
AV-Comparatives released their 2017 awards earlier this month, and ESET came away taking home multiple gold awards. The first award they took home was gold in lowest false positives, which often cause as much trouble as a real infection. Due to this, it is vital that security products go through strict testing to make sure they avoid false positives. This year, ESET lead the way with 0 false positives, with second-place far behind with 5.
ESET also took home gold in best overall system speed. This is vital since security products must remain turned on at all times, and the last thing you want is your computer slowing down.
This issue can be exasperated even more if you commonly do resource heavy computing tasks.
