Why I want to compare these apps
For the last few months I have been using Kaspersky Internet Security 2016, but I was looking at emisoft and I was wondering which of these two products provides the most protection while being easy to use and also which product has the best Behavior Blocker zero day protection and detection rates?

I have used both programs in the past few months.
Last month i had KIS installed and 3-4 months ago i had Emsisoft.

As @omidomi already said Behaviour Blocker, detection and zero day protection both products perform the same.
But to have better protection from KIS you need to tweak it while Emsisoft does that at default settings.

One other thing i noticed is that KIS over time makes my system a bit slower in browsing.
With Emsisoft installed i didn't noticed that.

As for easy of use i prefer Emsisoft, it's easier to tweak it.

In my opinion Emsisoft is the winner mostly for it's system performance.
As far protection goes i believe both products perform the same.

p.s: you can try Emsisoft for a few days and then you can decide which product performs better in your own system;)

Emsisoft for me. Very light,fast, hight detection rates, excellent behaviour blocker. Kaspersky has also excellent detection rates, but it is heavy on resources and can be very buggy sometimes.
Emsisoft is:
Bitdefender engine+Emsisoft engine+Excellent behaviour blocker+Low tolerance towards PUPs+Low performance impact= Cleaner and more responsive Pc;)

KIS good for average users at defaults. Do remember to select the option to detect PUP in additional threats. It was light here.

Emsisoft good for intermediate & experts. System boot & on reaching desktop it takes little time for the system to settle down with EIS here.

Both provide good protection so protection wise you could go with any one.

I would say give a try to both on your system & see which you find better on your system.

Emsisoft is the best paid product on the market. So easy to use, great detections, good web filter, one of the best behavior blocker.
KIS is bundled with many thing and browser extensions etc. I do not like how it is heavy and laggy..
Go with Emsisoft, you will never regret

Emsisoft slow my boot time (I use EIS) but kaspersky no :)
Emsisoft runs (way) better, they both have solid signatures, but I feel like Emsisoft has a better behavior blocker. I vote EMSISOFT.
Kaspersky based on solid signature? Are you sure? :D:rolleyes:

One man's meat is another man's poison. Being best detection and stuffs really boils down on their own system. Both works fine on my system. Both have a great BB.

I strictly go for Emsisoft not because of performance but because of ease of use (kaspersky has way too much features that I do not use) and cost (KIS $59.95 vs EIS $49.95 at retail price).

Kaspersky has done well in the Malware Hub as of late. It doesn't matter if it did (so and so) ex years ago. What matters is what it does with newer malware tech. As far as Emsisoft slowing your boot time, it just comes down to what hardware you're running, what other software you're running, and many other factors. Far too many people blame the AV, and never consider other factors (which is unfortunate).

Edit: Kaspersky, in my view, IS heavier, because it has a lot of extra stuff that comes with it. It's almost like they're trying to make a total computer suite (not even just security), creating more dependence on Kaspersky, and less dependence on programs that are best left in their natural state. EMSISOFT goes from fast to moderate, fast to moderate every few updates. Not sure why they can't sort that out.

Behavior Blocker->KIS has its best Aplication Control but you have to config it to get best out of it/EIS has automatic BB
zero day protection->Emsisoft BB show good but in this point KIS has won my vote and turst with UDS:D
detection rates(both)-> Emsisoft Use BD Engine and BD engine have many Fps/KIS use their single engine with less/0 FP.
Kaspersky Internet Security also has System Watcher.EIS don't have it.
Winner:Kaspersky IS 2016.

Hi
I have used Kaspersky but actually Kaspersky have many features of protection which don't run on Windows 10 and/or on 64 bits systems.
I'm trying Emsisoft Internet Security and it's more easy to use and it runs on all types of systems.
I vote Emsisoft.
