Sorry, this product is no longer available, please contact us for a replacement.
Switching security solutions on a large scale can be challenging for any organization. A wellplanned strategy can minimize the impact on business processes without sacrificing security.
The essential requirement for switching security solutions is to cleanly remove all existing antivirus software as quickly and efficiently as possible. There are a number of approaches to antivirus software removal, most of which have serious limitations: generic or “cookie cutter” displacement tools cannot guarantee a clean removal of existing antivirus software; and native uninstallers included with many antivirus products leave “debris” that can lead to system instability. The most effective approach is one that is customized for the unique needs of your organization. The ESET Rip and Replace service provides such a strategy.
The ESET Rip and Replace service is a customized solution for organizations medium-sized or larger. Based on your computer’s configurations, the ESET Rip and Replace service removes all traces of existing antivirus software from all of your machines and seamlessly installs the ESET antivirus software from a central location. This can be done without a system reboot. Personal consulting and deployment assistance are included with the Rip and Replace service.
