Dubai, United Arab Emirates, December 6, 2009: ADAOX Middle East, the exclusive distribution partner and the regional business development centre of ESET NOD32 Antivirus, today announced the release of ESET’s new products – ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 for Mac OS X and Linux – for public Beta testing for its customers in the Middle East.
ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 for Mac and ESET NOD32 Antivirus for Linux, respectively meet the demanding criteria for advanced PC protection, detecting threats engineered for a multitude of platforms.
All ESET products employ advanced heuristic analysis that creates a layer of defense against emerging threats and use generic signatures for reliable detection of mutations of known viruses.
By developing a security solution for Linux and Mac, ESET is responding to the user demand, as well as the vulnerability of these operating systems to exploits. The need to extend protection to these platforms stems from the fact that they have been known to act as a carrier for computer threats infecting other workstations in the network running on the Microsoft Windows platform,â€ says Mr. Neo Neophytou, Managing Director of ADAOX Middle East. â€œWe are confident our Middle East customers using Mac OS X and Linux platforms will find the new beta version of ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 very useful and efficient in detecting known and unknown internet threats.
