Web and email clients

Because of the enormous amount of malicious code circulating the Internet, safe Internet browsing is a very important aspect of computer protection. Web browser vulnerabilities and fraudulent links help malicious code enter the system unnoticed, which is why ESET File Security focuses on web browser security. Each application accessing the network can be marked as an Internet browser. Applications that already use protocols for communication or applications from selected paths can be added to the list of Web and email clients.


Starting with Windows Vista Service Pack 1 and Windows Server 2008 SP2, the new Windows Filtering Platform (WFP) architecture is used to check network communication. Since WFP technology uses special monitoring techniques, the Web and email clients section is not available.
