One of the better applications you could use to keep your Windows-powered machine safe and secure is the ESET-developed NOD32 Antivirus 4 for Windows. The provider of antivirus software for home and business users is fully aware that its not just Windows users who need protecting against security threats – Linux users also need the functionality a properly good antivirus product has to offer.

Earlier this week ESET announced that NOD32 Antivirus 4 for Linux and NOD32 Antivirus 4 Business Edition for Linux Desktop have been released to the public. These security software solutions will provide complete protection against cross-platform and emerging threats to Linux-powered corporate workstations and home computers while minimally impacting system performance.

ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 for Linux uses the ThreatSense Engine that is quite light on system resources but hard on security threats. It automatically detects and addresses malicious code and cross-platform threats (threats meant for Windows and Macs).

IT admins will be glad to know that ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 Business Edition for Linux Desktop comes with SET Remote Administrator, a feature that provides them with a management console from which they can control an entire network. They can manage a network of up to tens of thousands of computers from a single screen.

"Given the importance of consumer and business usage of Linux, it is essential to equip users with advanced security software to protect against cyber-attacks," said Richard Marko, CEO of ESET. "With ESET NOD32 Antivirus for Linux, ESET’s protection is now available for all major platforms and this ensures up-to-date protection against threats aimed at Linux, Windows or Mac OS," he added.

In Linux-related news, 2011 is the year when Linux celebrates its 20th anniversary. It was back in 1991 that the Linux kernel was released to the public by Linus Torvalds. To find out how the Linux Foundation is celebrating Linux’s 20th anniversary, check out this site.
