Protect your organization against malware.

Using Antivirus Essentials you can safely browse online. Antivirus Essentials helps you protect critical web browser functions, receive a warning if a download has a low reputation, and identify detected threats so you never have a false sense of security.

Gain Peace-of-Mind

Cybersecurity threats are becoming more common and their effects can be devastating. Businesses need peace of mind that the data used to run their business is protected. 

SecurityMetrics Antivirus Essentials is a high-end antivirus software that protects against malware. Antivirus Essentials utilizes a Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) to monitor the behavior of code to stop malware before a specific detection update is released. Antivirus Essentials also detects actions that behave like ransomware and will restore any impacted files, so you can rest easy knowing you are protected.


Detect Malware & Malicious Servers

Antivirus Essentials has built in malicious traffic detection that identifies programs connecting to remote servers. Threat actors try to gain access to your computer using this third party exploitation technique and Antivirus Essentials can protect you from this type of attack. It also uses CryptoGuard Ransomware protection which constantly monitors file writes for encrypted files. If Antivirus Essentials detects this, it will restore impacted files and stop the execution process, instantly cleaning up malware.

Streamline Your Software Installation

Setting up software can be tedious and difficult, especially if it’s not your area of expertise. SecurityMetrics understands this and has assigned support agents ready to help you or your merchants 24/7. Support agents have a 15 second answer time-frame, so you won’t waste time waiting to speak to an expert. Antivirus Essentials is easier to install than other competing products and doesn’t require fine-tuning to get optimal protection.
