You are correct, the Mac AV software is out of Beta. I do not know
what are entitlement is to this software. We have an inquiry in
with ESET to find out. To date, we had not been thinking very
seriously about buying this software, and as such have not solicited
community testing or feedback. However, we certainly are happy to
hear your opinions on the subject. Next time, on Geraldo... Macs
without AV protection... Good Idea, or Threat to the American Way of
Preliminary testing results from our crack team of Mac AV testers
(all one of them, and no, it is not me) suggest that ESET AV causes
too much system performance degradation to use everyday. Your
mileage may vary.

type="cite"> I downloaded what I thought was the latest beta of
ESET NOD32 Antivirus Business Edition for Mac and it looks like it
is a production version. It doesn't have any branding to indicate
that it is a BETA version and it won't update the virus signature
database without a valid username and password combination. I
checked the website and see that it is now available as a finished
product (http://www.eset.com/?prod=100112). Has ESET given UVM
any indication about whether this software is covered under our
current agreement or if it will have to be licensed separately?
Do we have a temporary username/password combination that we can
use in order to update the virus signature database?
