Forget about the cringe-worthy name; ESET Cyber Security Pro is a solid anti-virus suite for Mac. AV-Test gave ESET CSP a perfect score on its widespread and prevalent malware test in December, the most recent test available. Our own checks produced a similar result when testing ESET CSP on a MacBook running macOS Mojave (AV-Test used High Sierra).

ESET had no trouble blocking most of the threats on WICAR’s test site of prevalent web-based attacks. The only issue we noticed was that ESET didn’t detect the Adobe Flash hacking team leak; however, we tested on Safari without an active Flash plugin.

Moving over to spot checks with malware from the Objective See repository, ESET immediately detected trojans, backdoors, and ransomware. These threats were detected as soon as the malware was unzipped, and ESET alerted us to the issue and began automated clean-up. Depending on the type of malware, ESET’s approach is to remove the malware code from within documents and other files as opposed to deleting the entire thing. That’s not always the case, however; ESET did at times delete entire DMG files.

Like many suites, ESET offers to scan USB drives as soon as you plug them in, and you can choose to mark some drives as safe so that ESET will not scan them when you use them in the future.
