ESET Gateway Security for Linux / BSD / Solaris

Maintain a Pristine Network
ESET has engineered a first-rate gateway security solution for
Linux, BSD, and Solaris networks.

ESET Gateway Security is built to shield HTTP and FTP gateways from recognized and emerging

Gateway security has a low impact on system resources,
allowing systems with more intensive network traffic to run smoothly and efficiently while enjoying powerful protection.

Key Features and Benefits


Centralized Management

With ESET Remote Administrator allowing you to control individual endpoints and server security from a single location, management of large, complex networks has been considerably simplified.



SafeSquid Proxy Integration

ESET Gateway Security delivers fully integrated antimalware scanning for gateway services using the SafeSquid Internet Proxy.



Pre-Defined Actions

ESET Gateway Security provides multiple predefined actions to be taken based on the results of a scan. An example would be blocking a file that has been marked as infected and automatically inserting a predefined webpage template in its place, a warning perhaps.





Highly Customizable

With ESET’s wide range of customizability and options, you are now fully flexible in defining scanning rules. You can set scanner preferences globally while still providing custom overrides in the form of user-specific rules based on individual IP addresses.

Automatic Bidirectional Protection

Any inbound or outbound HTTP and FTP traffic is automatically scanned and analyzed to prevent the spread of recognized or emerging malware.



Protection from the Unknown

ESET’s ThreatSense® solution has been highly acclaimed for its ability to detect and eliminate emerging threats that have not yet been specified in a malware database.




Effectiveness and Stability

ESET Gateway Security users can enjoy powerful, stable software thanks to a new optimized daemon and smart partial scanning techniques.



Easy to Manage

Gateway Security’s instinctive, web based interface is an extremely user-friendly tool for software management.



Smaller Update Packages

Due to a re-engineered and optimized scanning engine, the size of update packages has been greatly reduced, minimizing the load on system resources.


Free Inclusion of ESET Remote Administrator

Every licensed copy of ESET Gateway Security for Linux / BSD / Solaris includes a copy of
ESET Remote Administrator. Remote Administrator allows complete management of endpoint security from a single console, including policy application, scheduling and running scans, managing updates and more.
