Network access protection

Network access protection enables you to configure all your network connections. You can allow/deny access to your computer on specific networks, allow/deny access to network devices from your computer and more based on the configuration. By default, ESET Endpoint Security has pre-configured firewall rules and network access protection for maximum security. However, specific environments may need custom configuration. Changing the default settings should only be done by an experienced user.


You can configure the following settings in Advanced setup > Protections > Network access protection (click the links below for a detailed description of each Network access protection option):

Network connection profiles—Profiles can be used to control the Network access protection and Firewall for specific network connections.
