Well, I have not been provided with Emsisoft's answer yet. I can ask that if their answer is vague, or not clear.
If I recall what Fabian stated, the Emsisoft anti-exploit feature does not utilize mitigations but instead by another means. It would make sense that the other means is the behavior blocker. For example, when an Office program macro attempts to access an interprter, there is a suspicious action alert. Also, the Microsoft Office program is terminated. You can see it in action by testing a weaponized Excel or Word document.

Hitman Pro.alert is best for me. KIS 2018, ZAM and HitmanPro provides me a good and secure environment. Hitman has kewstrock encrypted feature which help to protect while connected in Wifi.

Yes, EAM is an anti-malware with exploit mitigation while HMPA is an anti-exploit, so both are recommended.
@Umbra, HMPA has features such as hollow process protection, dll protection, etc etc. Isn't this mitigation? And if so, isn't it a potential conflict with EAM?

The exploit mitigation of EAM is via the BB, there is no other components.
Not im aware of, i used both for quite a long time never had issues.

I'm using side-by-side for years. Never had any conflicts besides one slip up which was quickly patched by both.
