ESET Inspect

ESET Inspect combines all the powerful capabilities of its on-premises version with the ease of deployment, and virtually no maintenance requirements, of a cloud-delivered service. It is a culmination of ESET Endpoint detection technologies and know-how.

It has a fully transparent and customizable Rule Engine with nearly 1,000 rules, written by ESET's world-class malware researchers to detect threats and behavioral anomalies cross-referenced with the MITRE ATT&CK framework.

For response and remediation, ESET Inspect provides security professionals with a variety of features:

Block executables

Kill processes

Isolate endpoints from the network

Terminal remote shell

All response actions can be triggered manually or automatically with pre-defined response scenarios.

Incidents are handled easily via its Incident Management system, and threat hunting is a breeze thanks to the powerful Indicator of Compromise (IoC) search and filtering.

ESET Inspect includes all of the key features and capabilities of ESET Inspect but were slightly adjusted to fit the needs of cloud-based management.

Multiplatform support Windows, macOS, and Linux allows virtually any endpoint to be monitored, completely protecting an organization regardless of its platform type.

ESET Business products version 6 and later are supported.

License management is done entirely in ESET Business Account. Create a new ESET PROTECT and ESET Inspect instance. A single instance supports up to 25,000 endpoints.

The dashboard does not contain Server status and Events load tabs (no maintenance is required).

The Settings section contains fewer configuration options than the ESET Inspect version, as there is no need for ESET Inspect Database maintenance.

The Settings section offers search engine integration, Rule learning mode and an option to specify a ESET Inspect instance name.

Data collection is configured to store the most important data. All data related to processes are stored, but the collection of low-level events is limited to suspicious ones.


The ESET Status Portal displays the current status of ESET cloud services, scheduled outages and past incidents. If you are experiencing an issue with a supported ESET service and do not see it listed in the Status Portal, contact ESET Technical Support.

Monitoring teams verify potential issues internally, and confirmed incidents are posted and updated manually to maintain high credibility and accuracy. Therefore, they appear on the Status Portal with a slight delay. Incidents with a short duration may not be posted if they are resolved before being manually confirmed.


Our target is to provide 99.5% service availability. Our effort and well-defined processes drive this endeavor.

In the event of an ESET Inspect service outage, endpoints remain secure and unaffected.
