ESET PROTECT On-Prem is an application that allows you to manage ESET products on client workstations, servers and mobile devices in a networked environment from one central location. With ESET PROTECT On-Prem's built-in task management system, you can install ESET security solutions on remote computers and quickly respond to new problems and detections.

ESET PROTECT On-Prem does not provide protection against malicious code by itself. Protection of your environment depends on the presence of an ESET security solution such as ESET Endpoint Security on workstations and mobile devices, or ESET Server Security for Windows on server machines.


Since version 11.0, ESET PROTECT has been renamed to ESET PROTECT On-Prem.

ESET PROTECT On-Prem is built around two primary principles:

Centralized management - The entire network can be configured, managed and monitored from one place.

Scalability - The system can be deployed in a small network as well as in large enterprise environments. ESET PROTECT On-Prem is designed to accommodate the growth of your infrastructure.

ESET PROTECT On-Prem supports the new generation of ESET security products and is also compatible with the previous generation of products.
