Key Features

The following table provides a list of features that are available in the ESET Security for Microsoft SharePoint.

True 64-bit product core

Adding higher performance and stability to the product core components.

Performance Counters

ESET Security for Microsoft SharePoint Counters enable you to monitor the overall ESET Security for Microsoft SharePoint performance.

On-access filter

File protection that works by filtering during file access.

On-demand scan

File protection by database scan, initiated by user or scheduled to run at a certain time.

User defined rules

Allow administrators to create and manage custom rules for file filtering by defining conditions and actions to take with filtered files.

Automatic exclusions

Automatic detection and exclusion of critical applications and server files for smooth operation and performance.


Protects ESET security solutions from being modified or deactivated.

Effective Troubleshooting

Built-in tools for resolving various issues: ESET SysInspector for system diagnostics and ESET SysRescue Live to create a bootable rescue CD or USB.

ESET Cluster

ESET server products are able to communicate with each other and exchange data such as configuration and notifications, as well as synchronize data necessary for correct operation of a group of product instances. This provides for same configuration of the product across the whole cluster. Windows Failover Clusters and Network Load Balancing (NLB) Clusters are supported by ESET Security for Microsoft SharePoint. Additionally, you can add ESET Cluster members manually without the need for a specific Windows Cluster. ESET Clusters work in both domain and workgroup environments.

Component-based installation

Choose which components you want to add or remove.

Storage scan

Scans all shared files on a local server. This makes it easy to selectively scan only user data that is stored on the file server.

Processes exclusions

Excludes specific processes from Antivirus on-access scanning. Due to the critical role of dedicated servers (application server, storage server, etc.) regular backups are mandatory to guarantee timely recovery from fatal incidents of any kind. To improve backup speed, process integrity and service availability, some techniques that are known to conflict with file-level antivirus protection are used during backup. Similar problems can occur when attempting live migrations of virtual machines. The only effective way to avoid both situations is to deactivate antivirus software. By excluding specific process (for example those of the backup solution) all file operations attributed to such excluded process are ignored and considered safe, thus minimizing interference with the backup process. We recommend that you use caution when creating exclusions – a backup tool that has been excluded can access infected files without triggering an alert which is why extended permissions are only allowed in the real-time protection module.

eShell (ESET Shell)

eShell 2.0 is now available in ESET Security for Microsoft SharePoint. eShell is a command line interface that offers advanced users and administrators more comprehensive options to manage ESET server products.
