Emsisoft Anti-Malware is a relatively well known anti-malware from New Zealand.
Formerly with Ikarus under the name a-squared, Emsisoft has evolved over the years.
Even if some legendary tools have been abandoned (like Mamutu, or OnlineArmor), Emsisoft has managed to merge them into its anti-malware software.
The interface has been slightly modified, the Dark Mode is present (that I had to activate), finally exit the white interface that I did not like!
Now it’s much better. There is also a small pane on the left that explains the small things.
For the test, I voluntarily configure Emsisoft, but in all honesty, it is useless.
RAM consumption is quite average, but you can optimize with the mode on RAM that I checked.
Detection and protection level… I’m surprised !
Even if these 2 engines are still excellent, where I expected to see a big improvement is on the side of the Cloud and on the behavioral blocking, where Emsisoft often had difficulties during my tests.
I’m very happy that Emsisoft has finally corrected this!
Cloud blocking is very fast, it caught 2 droppers of my URLs and was unbeatable on the pack!
Only one Java malware passed the protection but is not active at all.
Emsisoft is a very complete anti-malware and lives up to my expectations. It will protect you efficiently.
