Secure Your Gaming Devices With ESET

PC gamers know just how important it is to have a computer that runs smoothly, with no interruptions, while still keeping the system safe and sound from threats.


While safety is important, many gamers choose to bypass installing security solutions because they give annoying pop-ups, slow down the computer with random scans, and so on.

With ESET, however, those things aren’t an issue, and you can keep your computer and your data safe without worrying about any annoyances when you’re gaming by enabling the Gamer Mode feature.


Cybersecurity Awareness

October was international cybersecurity awareness month, which only serves as a reminder that we all need to collectively do more about the safety of our devices and our data.

On the one hand, PC gaming is the most versatile gaming option out there, since there are so many cool titles you can play. On the other hand, while you know that your PlayStation console will run a dedicated game just fine, on your PC you have to worry about multiple things, starting with the computer’s build and ending with the software you run that can slow down your system.

Using a security solution is mandatory on your PC to protect yourself from various types of malware, ransomware, spyware, and so on. ESET offers a ton of solutions you can use, based on how much coverage you’re looking for and how much you’re willing to pay for it all.

There are two things that are super important when you’re gaming and using a security solution.

The first thing is that you don’t get annoying notifications while you’re playing. Whether you’re in the middle of a dungeon, healing a full-on raid, battling some 1-on-1 boss, or racing a car, the last thing you want is to get a notification that distracts you, popping up on half the screen.

ESET is mindful of this and offers a feature called Gamer Mode that doesn’t display any notifications while you’re in full-screen mode. Basically, even if you’re watching a movie on your computer, you won’t get interrupted.

The second and perhaps even more important thing is for the security solution you are running to be light. You don’t want your computer running slow with games already being super heavy on your computer’s resources. ESET is a complete security solution that combines maximum protection and a minimal system footprint. Our advanced technologies use artificial intelligence to prevent infiltrations without hindering system performance or disrupting your computer.

What ESET Solution Do You Need?

This is the ultimate cyber protection solution from ESET; SmartSecurity Premium. The app allows you to tailor all settings to your specific needs. It will protect you against phishing attacks, block scams, and act as a shield against attackers.

This premium security offers a feature called ESET LiveGuard, that discovers and stops never-before-seen threats and processes information for future detection.

Smart Security Premium also features a password manager, which is absolutely genius because we all need to be using one of these. Weak or reused passwords play a huge part in people getting hacked. Considering how many accounts we all have, using a unique password for each of them and actually remembering them is impossible. Therefore, the only way to go is to use a Password Manager. The fact that ESET provides one with its security offering is perfect.

Lastly, Smart Security Premium can also work fabulously to protect your sensitive data. You can use military-grade encryption to secure your computer and removable drives, to prevent the misuse of private, confidential information.

Any of these solutions will work great on any gaming PC or laptop, offering protection while minimizing the impact on the computer’s resources.

These days, you should be securing all your devices, from your laptop to your desktop to your smartphone. Essential Security is available on Windows and macOS, while Advanced Security and Premium Security work on Windows, macOS, and Android devices.

Secure Your Devices and Continue Gaming

As you prepare for another night of gaming, making sure that your devices are secure against threats is the right thing to do. Give yourself one less thing to worry about with peace of mind that any of these three Eset security options will offer you total protection and a light system footprint.
