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 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

Pros:

  • Affordable

CONS:

  • Low performance

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
