       dispersed networks with complex hierarchies.
   l   Improved policy manager – New intuitive wizard makes it easy to map policies to groups. Policy

       work with improved search for unregistered clients. Also creates tasks to push install endpoints in parallel
       without further intervention.
   l   Centralized quarantine management – Restore or delete quarantined objects from the console based on
       specified criteria or exclude them from further scanning. Top-down visibility ensures consistency in quarantine
       policy across all endpoints.

       previous versions of ESET Smart Security, ESET NOD32 Antivirus for Windows, as well as upcoming
