Emsisoft heeft versie 10 van Anti-Malware en Internet Security uitgebracht. Anti-Malware beschermt tegen virussen en malware, terwijl Internet Security ook de firewall Online Armor aan boord heeft. Een licentie voor Anti-Malware kost vier tientjes en voor Internet Security zijn dat er vijf. De programma's zijn geschikt voor Windows XP of hoger en kunnen dertig dagen worden getest. Na die dertig dagen schakelen de programma's over naar de gratismodus, die wel kan scannen en verwijderen, maar geen realtime beveiliging biedt. In versie 10 is het programma onder meer een stuk sneller geworden en kan het zo ingesteld worden dat er geen privégegevens naar Emsisoft worden gestuurd.
“We spent quite some effort in tweaking the speed” says our CTO
What he actually means is: A complete scan of all files on a reasonable modern computer now takes only six and a half minutes where it used to take half an hour before. And a typical “Malware Scan” which was previously known as “Smart Scan” went down from 13 minutes to only 24 seconds. That’s a scan time reduction of 97%. Wow!
A recent study showed that people value performance of their antivirus/anti-malware the most, so we looked hard at areas where we can take better advantage of modern hardware and where we can use limited hardware resources more efficiently, while improving the quality of detection even further. As a result, we have changed the way the dual-scan engine reads files from disk. It does not only use the full potential of fast SSD storage devices and multi-core processors, but also reads data in the most effective way for low memory usage now.
A product that respects your privacy – No excuses
9 out of 11 well known antivirus/anti-malware products track and submit all your visited websites to some far-away server, AV-Comparatives concluded. Emsisoft doesn’t. Period.
We’re serious about protecting your data and your privacy. Therefore we have created a new settings panel that provides sophisticated access to various software options that may have any impact on your privacy, such as participation in individual features of the Emsisoft Anti-Malware Network. Just turn any of them off if you feel uncomfortable.
A Behavior Blocker that gives you full control over running programs
What if you could combine the Windows Task Manager’s quick view on active programs with the power and knowledge of a Behavior Blocker? Please open the new Behavior Blocker panel at the Protection menu to find out yourself. There you’ll find all programs that are not known to be safe and worth investigating at hand within seconds.
Known to be easy to use – Now even more flexible and efficient
Our development team spent quite some time in following our customer’s requests – as usual. You can now flexibly schedule multiple scans and connect them with various events such as scans directly after PC startup, or a weekly scan on each Friday after work. Hundreds more major and minor user interface improvements were implemented too.
