Great product with fantastic protection!

Emsisoft does not include any bloatware in their product, it does what it should. Very effective scan and protection results (including independent 3rd party professional testing!) Hourly incremental updates and downloaded and applied with minimal impact.

Pros:

  • Rich in features and affordable

CONS:

  • Few results from independent test labs

Emsisoft Anti-Malware is a security product that is more than capable of protecting you against offline threats

It is one of the best security solutions nowadays. It is a two engine antivirus, but in terms of protection Emsisoft Anti-Malware can be even better than some very known internet security solutions on the market. I do recommend Emsisoft Anti-Malware to everyone who is searching from protection combined with very low system resources usage.

Pros:

  • Surf protection

CONS:

  • There is no firewall module included

Scans and removes trojans and other malware such as viruses, spyware, trackers, etc.

Overall I think Emsisoft Anti-Malware does a great job at what it is supposed to do, and has just as many features as other programs (with the exception of a firewall) for a bit less money. I can't complain about the protection level, but I can't help thinking that in order

Pros:

  • Excellent malware protection scores

CONS:

  • Poor phishing protection

Emsisoft Anti-Malware is a versatile malware removal and computer protection software that can easily replace traditional antivirus

Emsisoft scores quite well and is easy to navigate

Well, the benefits are in what it does---keep viruses away---and that is certainly what this product has done. It also predicts whether software you are managing or are about to download are problems in the making.

Pros:

  • Effective behavioral-based blocking

CONS:

  • No webcam protection

Emsisoft Anti-Malware is a decent package for people that want to protect themselves from the worst threats

EAM has a feature called behavior blocker that will detect zero day exploits before they have been discovered by the malware companies. Behavior blocker works by detecting actions that malware must use in order to accomplish its purpose.

Pros:

  • Behavioral detection successfully blocked ransomware

CONS:

  • Unreliable URL blocking

It`s not conceived to replace a real-time firewall or anti-virus on your PC

I found Emsisoft to be very competent at securing my machine, but (big but), "best" is relative. What good is an antivirus/malware if it doesn't behave itself on YOUR machine? It could be 99.9% effective in some AV Test Lab but if it bogs down/bluescreens your machine or

Good on protection, bad on user experience

As it is usual with the top security product from a company, Emsisoft's security pack includes anti-virus (2 separate scanning engines to be precise) a firewall, web filter and so forth. After installing it, I put it to my classic acid test of visiting known malicious websites

Pros:

  • Access to latest security news

CONS:

  • Pop-up windows

Providing effective malware protection

I have used this on a few occasions to get rid of the particularly pesky 'FBI Moneypak' infection. It finds a lot of things that other scanners can not. It can take an insanely long time to download though as you download a .zip file first then extract the start.exe file that you need to run the app. Other than that, it's a solid removal tool.

Pros:

  • Easy to use and clean interface

CONS:

  • No SLA-level support

Emsisoft Anti-Malware focuses on the core task of keeping my PCs free of malware

Extensive product documentation is available, and helpful hints are spread across the interface. Multiple languages are supported. The app showed almost perfect virus detection ratio during our evaluation.

Pros:

  • Highly configurable

CONS:

  • Not available for Linux and OSX

Basic scans are speedy and effective

I like testing AV software as a hobby and have been reading positive reviews about Emsisoft on "techy" forums. They are a much smaller company than the AV "giants", but appear to be committed to customer satisfaction in more ways than the bigger companies.

Pros:

  • Surfing protection is browser-independent

CONS:

  • Interface can be awkward

Emsisoft Anti-Malware effectively handles the basic tasks of malware protection, including ransomware.

EAM is a great product; I have used it for 3-4 years. It does very well in malware tests, consistently in the top 3-4 products often with 100% detection. It has two malware scanners, its own and BitDefender.

Pros:

  • Very good independent lab scores

CONS:

  • Few scores from independent labs

Efficient enough to detect and remove the hidden trojans, adware, worms, spyware, etc from your PC

Yes, very good article, and based on my own several years testing/use in wild of various A/V it's truthful as well. Emsisoft also still offers the free Emsisoft Emergency Kit, a manual second-opinion type scanner only.

Pros:

  • Real-time File Guard

CONS:

  • Puts high strain on system resources for certain routine activities

It is a very good program with a high rate of successes and protection

It is an Anti-malware system that effectively protects your system from Trojans, spyware and other malicious software. You can use the different scan modes (deep and personalized analysis of your system, perform normal analysis, inteliogent analysis).

Pros:

  • 30-day free trial

CONS:

  • The installer is much heavier compared to other AVs

Terrible compatibility issues.

The software is light and effective, no doubt. I would strongly recommend NOT to buy it due to its compatibility problems. It forces you to reinstal each few weeks due to run problems or update problems.

Pros:

  • Inexpensive

  • Support does reply

It is highly suitable for detecting virtually every type of threat originating from malwares and other such malicious content

Excellent scores in our malware blocking and malicious URL blocking tests. Good scores in lab tests. Effective behavior-based detection can even spot ransomware. Clean, simple user interface. Hence the name, Emsisoft Anti-Malware focuses on the core task of keeping your

Pros:

  • Twin-engine scanner on demand

Protecting sensitive and valuable information from falling prey to hackers and other unscrupulous elements

Emsisoft command line scanner is far superior to the GUI interfaces of other security software on the market. If your a security specialist with the need for total control then this is the product for you. This is easily my favorite as the flexibility of this product makes this perfect for advance users.

Pros:

  • Blocks access to previously known malicious URLs

CONS:

  • Large download

Best Anti-Malware Product in the Market

Lots of people hate this product. But surprise, surprise, comodo and AVG dont have the best signatures on the market. But emsisoft does. Emsisoft currently has the highest detection rate 99.6% ouut of ANY Anti virus product reviewed by a popular reviewer (VB100, Av Comparatives)

Pros:

  • Anti-Ransomware Protection

  • A little high on resources but no slow down noticed

Emsisoft Anti-Malware is a great product

You will like this program. It is easy to use, has a good interface, and many great features. The fact that the antivirus engine is built in is super because as other reviewers have stated it has two scan engines: One for viruses and the other for spyware/malware.

Pros:

  • Constant auto updates, and features

CONS:

  • Can't find all threats

Its antivirus engine is great at detecting and removing malware from your computer

I've been using Emsisoft Antimalware for a couple of years. It provides good protection against anything that will infect your computer. The web shield is not as good about warning you about "bad" web sites as shields from the larger antivirus companies, but the behavior blocker

Pros:

  • The user interface looks good

CONS:

  • The web shield is not that efficient
