ESMC Web Console

ESMC Web Console is the main interface used to communicate with ESMC Server. You can think of it as a control panel, a central place where you can manage all of your ESET security solutions. It is a web-based interface that can be accessed using a browser (see Supported Web browsers) from any place and any device with internet access. When you log into the Web Console the first time, a Startup Wizard will appear.

In the ESMC Web Console standard layout:

The current user is always shown in the upper right, where the timeout for his/her session counts down. You can click Logout to log out at any time. When a session times out (because of user inactivity), a user must log in again.

To change User Settings, click your username in top right corner of ESMC Web Console.

You can click the information icon at the top of any screen to open the Help menu. The first link in this menu always links to Online Help for the current screen.

The Menu is accessible on the left at all times except when using a wizard. Click the expand_menu to expand the menu on the left side of the screen; you can collapse it by clicking collapse_menu Collapse menu.

The gear_icon icon always denotes a context menu.

Click update_default Refresh to reload/refresh displayed information.

Click the ESET Security Management Center logo to open the Dashboard screen.


Status Overview shows you how to get the most out of ESET Security Management Center. This will guide you through the recommended steps.


Screens with trees have specific controls. The tree itself is on the left with actions below. Click an item from the tree to display options for that item.

Tables allow you to manage units from rows individually, or in a group (when more rows are selected). Click a row to display options for units in that row. Data in tables can be filtered and sorted.

You can return to any step at any time.
