Network access protection

Network access protection enables you to configure all your network connections in detail. 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 Security Ultimate has pre-configured Firewall rules and network access protection for maximum security. However, specific environments may need custom configuration. Changing the default settings should be done only 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):
