Opting for a clean interface with a well-organized structure, ESET Smart Security shouldn't be difficult to navigate, regardless of the user's previous experience with av tools.Its rich and advanced customization set is another matter, however.The following table summarizes the new features for AD DS in Windows Server 2012, with a link to more detailed information where it is available.For a more detailed explanation of some features, including their requirements, see What's New in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS).Those who haven't gotten the chance to test it are welcomed to try the av utility for themselves.This topic provides background information about Active Directory Domain Services in Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012 and explains the process for upgrading domain controllers from Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2.The recommended way to upgrade a domain is to promote domain controllers that run newer versions of Windows Server and demote older domain controllers as needed.
Advanced settings may be altered when it comes to the scan objects (operating memory, boot sectors, emails, archives and self-extracting archives, runtime packers), heuristics and Smart signatures, cleaning level, file extensions, size limits, alternate data streams, logging, Smart optimization, and background scanning. Additional options can be configured for the real-time guard, HIPS, gamer mode, anti-stealth protection, web access, email client, and anti-phishing.
Borrowing the virus signature database and Threat Sense scanning engine from NOD32 Antivirus, ESET Internet Security (Smart Security) represents Eset's all-round av application against malware, complete with additional security components.
During installation it is possible to either enable or disable detection of PUPs (potentially unwanted applications), modify proxy settings and set the course of action for updating program components and restarting Eset right afterward.
This consolidation allows for all these components to use far less system resources, work consistently, respect the new Connected Standby state for new device types, and consume less battery on portable devices.
Because Windows Update is a part of Automatic Maintenance in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, its own internal schedule for setting a day and time to install updates is no longer effective.
