    History NOD32

    The acronym NOD stands for Nemocnica na Okraji Disku ("Hospital at the end of the disk"), a pun related to the Czechoslovak medical drama series Nemocnice na kraji města (Hospital at the End of the City). The first version of NOD32 - called NOD-ICE - was a DOS-based program. It was created in 1987 by Miroslav Trnka and Peter Paško at the time when computer viruses started to become increasingly prevalent on PCs running DOS. Due to the limitations of the OS however (lack of multitasking among others) it didn''t feature any on-demand/on-access protection nor most of the other features of the current versions. Besides the virus scanning and cleaning functionality it only featured heuristic analysis. With the increasing popularity of the Windows environment, advent of 32-bit CPUs, a shift on the PC market and increasing popularity of the Internet came the need for a completely different antivirus approach as well. Thus the original program has been rewritten from scratch and has been given the "NOD32" name both to emphasize the radical shift from the previous version and also its Windows (and 32-bit CPU) compatibility.

    Initially the program gained popularity with IT workers in Eastern European countries, as ESET was based in Slovakia. Though the program''s abbreviation was originally pronounced as individual letters, recent worldwide use of the program has led to the more common single-word pronunciation, sounding like the English word nod. The company reached its 10000th update to virus definitions on June 25, 2014.
