  • Pros
    Very good independent lab scores. Excellent score in our malware protection test. Behavioral detection successfully blocked ransomware. Surfing protection is browser-independent. Inexpensive.
  • Cons
    Dismal score in our phishing protection test. Few scores from independent labs. Behavioral detection failed against ransomware launched at startup.
  • Bottom Line
    Emsisoft Anti-Malware effectively handles the basic tasks of malware protection, including ransomware. Its few lab test results are good, as are its scores on our in-house malware protection tests, though it tanked on our antiphishing test.

Few scores from independent labs and effectively handles the basic tasks of malware protection convince me over 8 years ago be paid customer for Emsisoft and I had no single security problem on my PC from that time. On my recommendation is using this product most of my family and friends, everybody have just good experience with Emsisoft. My personal statement about Emsisoft, but I like to share my opinion.
