Emsisoft Receives Top Award in AV-Comparatives Malware Test

Emsisoft has once again received top marks from AV-Comparatives!

AV-Comparatives, an independent security software testing company, recently published its 2018 Malware Test Report, and we’re happy to announce that Emsisoft has been awarded the coveted Advanced+ Award.

Beyond Detection: Malware Protection

With the proliferation of increasingly sophisticated malware, detecting them alone is no longer enough. When in the past viruses are the “only” problems to worry about and are simply spotted and blocked, today’s malware variants are advanced enough to avoid detection. It is still important for security software to detect malware, but unlike the days of Internet old, detection now needs to be a part of a more robust and strategic anti-malware program to achieve a truly effective overall system protection.

Emsisoft’s multi-layered approach to Internet security offers complete and reliable protection from malware. Emsisoft Anti-Malware blocks, prevents, and eliminates threats, leaving you with the peace of mind that your PC is secure.

Emsisoft Achieves Advanced+ Award

Malware authors are only getting better at designing and deploying malware attacks, so AV-Comparatives designed a rigorous test to measure the effectiveness and adaptability of security programs, including executing any missed samples for a more complete assessment.

The Malware Test focused on security programs’ ability to detect malware offline and online, protect systems online — before, during, and after the execution of malware — and false alarms. Not surprisingly, Emsisoft performed exceptionally well and emerged as a top antivirus and anti-malware software program. With a 98.8% online and offline detection rates, leveraged by a 99.98% online protection rate, Emsisoft is proven to provide the complete protection from multiple attack vectors, in different scenarios.

According to AV-Comparatives the results of this latest Malware Protection Test is a great complementary to its Real World Protection Test, from which Emsisoft has excelled as well.
