I was just wondering does Emsisoft use the most up to date Bitdefender signatures?
my version of up to date means that if there is a signature update that comes out for Bitdefender and Emsisoft signatures do use the most up to date Bitdefender signatures Emsisoft should update theirs too within a hours time.Probably you would have to define what is your criteria of up-to-date. One hour upon release? One day? 3 days? ......
well that is very disappointing about Bitdefender Free then I was thinking of using it on one of my computers you would think if it is a Bitdefender product the signatures should be up to date.A few hours delay. The BitDefender Free has a day delay (or more), the same as Qihoo 360.
I never compared Bd free updates with Bd paid i.e installed on the system.A few hours delay. The BitDefender Free has a day delay (or more), the same as Qihoo 360.
Yeah I guess that is true. Thanks for the comment.
- I would not matter too much about the delay in signature. First Emsisoft uses two engines,its own and that of Bitdefender, so it removes the weakness concerning its dependency on Bitdefender signatures.
- Secondly signatures are only a little part of security suites these days. There is cloud detections, behavioural detections(in which Emsisoft excels),heuristic analysis and so on.You should not forget about the stability and performance of a product which is an essential part too.You may have a 100% score in signature detections but a poor level of detection concerning Zero-day malwares, which render all the signature analysis useless.Most importantly, no security suite offer 100% detection against all threats
Even delay, Emsisoft is still very good isnt it?
Hopefully Emsisoft will keep improve their products. Emsisoft is 1 of my fav security products
Yep. They do listen to feedback. I recall a couple of months ago, users were arguing whether Emsisoft should have anti-exploit protection, while at first this was denied in favor of compatibility with other security solutions, in seems Emsisoft staff decided to add it.Emsisoft always improving their products.
If I submit problem discovered during beta testing, I always get replay. It might be 6 months later, but I get reply.
Most other security soft vendors = no reply. Ever.
