about Emsisoft Anti-Malware

Forget viruses - Today's threats come in new shapes and are called Malware

That's why we think "Anti-Malware" is the more appropriate term, even if it's the same as what's commonly known as "Anti-Virus".

‣ Ransomware

Threat of the year since 2012. Attackers enter your PC through unpatched software and encrypt all your files. Can you afford to pay a $600 ransom to get your data back?

‣ Bots/Backdoors

They turn your PC into a remote controlled zombie. Your computing power is collectively sold on the black market to send spams, attack others or store illegal content.

‣ Banking Trojans

Hackers use phishing techniques and keyloggers to get your most valuable passwords and empty your bank- or PayPal-accounts invisibly within seconds.

‣ PUPs

Potentially Unwanted Programs that mess up your computer with useless browser toolbars, tons of commercials and other bulk that slows down the PC.

Emsisoft Anti-Malware is an antivirus and anti-malware software that protects PCs against various threats: viruses, trojans, spyware, bots, adware, keyloggers. Its local protection consists of two parts: Real-time File Guard (scans files you download and run) and behavior blocker.

There is also a browser extension (Emsisoft Browser Security) that protects against phishing attacks and blocks access to suspicious websites. One of the main advantages is that it uses two scanning engines: own engine and BitDefender. With this dual-engine scanner, Emsisoft Anti-Malware offers one of the strongest protection on the market.

In addition, Emsisoft provides another remarkable feature: you can run a scan, even if your computer does not boot. This feature is called Emergency Kit. It allows creating bootable media to scan the system.Users should not feel confused when using this program, as there are plenty of help materials and guides, as well as cue tips in the settings. Emsisoft Anti-Malware provides the ability to shutdown, with captcha to confirm it (user can disable the confirmation).

Emsisoft Anti-Malware is a lightweight program and does not require a lot of system resources. Its impact on system performance is small, but its effect on the protection of the system is very height.

    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. In effect you have two programs in one. I have found viruses/malware/spyware that are not recognized by other programs with this program, and rarely, I have found some on other programs that are not found by this program. So my bottom line stance on Emsisoft Anti-Malware is that it is a top of the line antivirus/antimalware/antispyware product. As I mentioned in the "Cons" section though, I would recommend having other programs installed in your computer for scanning thoroughness.
    • Pros
      • Constant auto updates, and features
    • Cons
      • Can't find all threats

    Emsisoft Anti-Malware is a versatile malware removal and computer protection software that can easily replace traditional antivirus
    This software have a god detection rate using dual scanner concept similar as G-Data, the grapich interface is clean and beatiful, lots of option to configure the software. Its a clean interface and the software's icon looks like an symbol from the 1930. But warning lots of annoying question beacuse it use HIPS and that have no brain for do any decision without the users brainpower. The company must resolve this endlessness HIPS related questions to win my heart for this software.
    • Pros
      • Real-time File Guard
    • Cons
      • There are no additional tools included

    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. The real-time safeguard's response time was excellent. Emsisoft Anti-Malware can help you to ensure that your computer stays virus free. Recommended for comprehensive computer protection against viruses, trojans, spyware, rootkits and other malicious software. A double Emsisoft scanner ensures rather high detection rate of known viruses and zero day threats.

    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.

    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 is first rate at blocking malicious files and "strange" files (you can whitelist/exclude an occasional false positive BB detection). Emsisoft used to have a firewall, but it has been discontinued because the standard firewall that comes with Windows since Windows 7 is very good. As extra protection, Emsisoft beefs up the Windows firewall a bit to replace their own firewall.
    • Pros
      • The user interface looks good
    • Cons
      • The web shield is not that efficient
