Why I Love ESET; How to get Antivirus Protection in Ghana [Giveaway]
When it comes to the internet, personal data and electronic devices, especially those that communicate over the internet, security is a major concern.
It’s not surprising to know someone that has been a victim of virus attack on their Personal Computers, mobile phones or Macbook. In fact, most people have devices that have been affected by one form of malware or the other and they don’t even know it.
For a long time, I have used solutions from ESET to protect my devices, especially my work computer which I use to access the internet every day.
My first encounter with ESET
Way back in 2011, I was working in an Internet Cafe at Teshie, a suburb of Accra. The Cafe owner had installed ESET Nod 32 Antivirus on all the 12 computers that were there at the time including the server that was used for the internet cafe’s administration.
At that time, I was used to a lot of “free antivirus” solutions and wondered why we had to use a solution that was not free.
That was made clear to me soon enough.
According to a customer of the internet cafe, the reason he loved to visit us was that anytime he brought his USB Drive to the cafe, there were no viruses on it when he went back home. Other cafes in the vicinity would usually infect his flash drive.
It’s important to note from this story that a good security solution, like the one ESET, provides gives you or your business the peace of mind you deserve.
Why I love ESET
I currently use ESET Internet Security on my work Windows laptop and I’m loving it. Let me walk you through why I love that my laptop is protected by ESET.
Ease of Use
When it comes to downloading and installing ESET, the process is fast and fluid. The initial download file is less than 5MB. All you need to do is go to the official website, choose the product you want and download it.
Once you have installed and chosen a trial or used a license (we are giving away some licenses below), ESET starts to scan your files and protect your device.
With ESET, you simply install it and never have to go back to tweak lots of settings.
A lot of antiviruses and other security software end up slowing your computer and sometimes making it unusable.
ESET doesn’t do that.
ESET requires just about a 100 MB of Ram to operate efficiently and uses less than 700MB of disk space. It adds at most 3 processes to the list of tasks running on your machine.
Due to this, after installing ESET, your machine will be secured, while continuing to run fast.
Reliable Malware Protection
ESET will find the latest worldwide threats and upgrade your protection automatically. Even if it is a threat that has never been seen before, ESET uses DNA scanning to automatically alert you of the threat.
ESET is built on trust, standards, and transparency, the reason why they have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
This means ESET will not steal your data or leave your device to be compromised in any way.

CITSYS Store, ESET Partners in Ghana
Over the years, it has been very difficult to get ESET license keys here in Ghana as people didn’t know of any ESET Ghana Store.
ESET has however been the security solution I have personally recommended to hundreds of my friends and acquaintances.
However, a lot of people had complained that after the trial period, they couldn’t get any license keys.
Well, I have good news.
Recently, I came by a store in Accra, Ghana that sells all ESET keys, as well as provides other IT services.
