Real Estate agency Better Homes Middle East has completed the deployment of ESET's NOD32 anti-virus system to protect its IT infrastructure from spyware, malware and other threats. Integrator NTS performed the implementation on behalf of ADAOX, ESET's regional business development centre.

NTS noted that the implementation at Better Homes was performed without requiring any network slowdown or downtime. Managing director Shivkumar said that ESET's central management abilities will be a strong factor in the ease of maintaining the system.

"ESET NOD32 has provided Better Homes with the ability of timely and centralised management of the updates and console, thus allowing them to reduce the maintenance tasks. Since deploying ESET NOD32, Better Homes has not had to deal with a single infection in their network," added NTS's Shivkumar.

Ryan Mahoney, managing director of Better Homes, explained the driver behind the new system: "We were looking for an antivirus solution that was easy to deploy and would protect our IT infrastructure against any new forms of online threats.  Having tested a number of products, we selected ESET NOD32 based on its detection rate, overall performance, manageability as well as the company's technology leadership and established track record."

"Research indicates that consumers and businesses are looking for maximum protection, low system requirements, accurate results and fast scanning speeds. They don't want solutions that will slow down their computers and affect routine business applications. Better Homes subjected ESET NOD32 and other antivirus solutions to rigorous testing and we are very proud, but not surprised that our solution came out as the winner," stated Neo Neophytou, managing director of ADAOX Middle East.
