    ESET is an IT security company headquartered in Bratislava, Slovakia that was founded in 1992 by the merger of two private companies. The company was awarded as the most successful Slovak company in 2008, 2009 and 2010. ESET is privately held and has branch offices in San Diego, United States; Montreal, Canada; Buenos Aires, Argentina; São Paulo, Brazil; Prague, Czech Republic; Kraków, Poland; and Singapore as well as distributors in over 180 countries.

    ESET offers antivirus products like ESET NOD32 and competes in the antivirus industry against Avira, BullGuard, Comodo Group, F-Secure, Frisk, Kaspersky, McAfee, Panda Security, Sophos, Symantec, and Trend Micro among others.



    The company was founded in 1992 when Miroslav Trnka and Peter Paško, authors of antivirus software NOD, partnered up with Rudolf Hrubý. They adopted the name of the Egyptian goddess of health, marriage and love as the company name. In 1998 NOD received the VB100 award of Virus Bulletin, which helped the company establish subsidiaries in the USA, Argentina and Singapore, and development facilities in Poland and Czech Republic.


    ESET makes extensive use of assembly language in its codebase, reducing system requirements and disk space utilization.

    In April 2009, ESET offered its antivirus engine in the form of SDK, which was implemented by CYAN Networks Software GmbH in its Secure Web Gateway product line.

    ESET''s products are regularly tested by organizations such as AV-Comparatives, AV-TEST and Virus Bulletin. ESET is the first company to receive seventy eight (78) VB100 awards from Virus Bulletin and has not missed a single threat in Virus Bulletin''s tests since 1998. ESET''s products are regularly certified by ICSA Labs and West Coast Labs.
