ESET Antivirus

ESET Antivirus helps protect your assets from malware, ransomware, and viruses.

Before You Begin

ESET Antivirus requires you to use an application called Remote Administrator to centrally manage all of the deployments to various workstations, assets, and servers. The Remote Administrator application allows ESET Antivirus to configure and send events via syslog, which InsightIDR will ingest.

  1. Install the ESET Remote Administrator: https://help.eset.com/era_install/65/en-US/index.html
  2. Configure syslog: https://help.eset.com/era_admin/63/en-US/index.html?admin_server_settings_syslog.htm
  3. Enable exporting to syslog: https://help.eset.com/era_admin/63/en-US/index.html?admin_server_settings_export_to_syslog.htm
