SAN DIEGO – October 5, 2011 - ESET today announced the ESET Family Security Pack, a single family subscription for securing multiple devices, which provides protection for the entire home network with a unified security package. The ESET Family Security Pack provides consumers with a single universal license to protect up to five computers across various operating systems, including Windows' and Mac OS X'.

As the number of households with multiple computers continues to increase, so does the number of cross-platform home networks. In fact, according to NPD’s 2011 Household Penetration Report, 70 percent of online households who own an Apple Computer also indicated owning a PC Computer. With ESET’s Family Security Pack users can choose from any combination of ESET Smart Security 5, ESET NOD32' Antivirus 5 or ESET Cybersecurity for Mac, eliminating the need to purchase individual security products for each computer and managing multiple license renewals each subsequent year.

“At ESET we are constantly working to better meet users’ changing needs when it comes to security and our ESET Family Security Pack is a direct result of that commitment,” said Dan Clark, vice president of marketing, ESET North America. “As more households operate multiple Mac and Windows computers, we wanted to create a solution that made the process of obtaining internet security for all their systems as simple and convenient as possible. Additionally, as we continue to expand our product line we plan to add protection for additional devices, including mobile and tablet offerings, to the Family Security Pack.”

In September, ESET released the latest generation of its flagship products, ESET Smart Security 5 and ESET NOD32 Antivirus 5, which offer a number of new and improved features, including: parental controls, ESET Live Grid featuring cloud-enhanced whitelisting, removable media management, advanced Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) and a gamer mode. Additionally, all ESET products include a one-of-a-kind interactive cybersecurity training. ESET’s cybersecurity training is designed to provide users with self-paced online education on protecting their computer, themselves and their family. Its contents are refreshed from time to time to include tips on how to stay safe from the latest threats.

ESET’s Family Security Pack is currently available in North America at the following retailers: Micro Center, Office Depot, Fry’s Electronics, Staples and London Drugs and will be available online via the ESET website on October 25, 2011. The offering is also available in other markets worldwide.
