Brute-force attack protection

Brute-force attack protection blocks password-guessing attacks for RDP and SMB services. A brute-force attack is a method of discovering a targeted password by systematically trying all combinations of letters, numbers, and symbols. To configure the Brute-force attack protection, open Advanced setup > Protections > Network access protection > Network attack protection > Brute-force attack protection.

Enable Brute-force attack protection—ESET Endpoint Security inspects network traffic content and blocks the attempts of password-guessing attacks.
