This guide is intended for a small to medium-sized businesses that manage up to 250 Windows ESET endpoint products using ESET PROTECT 9.
It will explain basic concepts important for deploying and using ESET security products.


ESET PROTECT 9 (formerly ESMC) 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.

The built-in task management system in ESET PROTECT allows you to install ESET security solutions on remote computers and quickly respond to new problems and detections.

ESET PROTECT 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.
