Emsisoft AntiMalware 6.5 Released: Review

Austrian company Emsisoft has released a new version of its flagship product Emsisoft Anti-Malware (EAM) on 26th April, 2012. The new version adds some improvements and some new features over an already complete anti-malware product.

Emsisoft Anti-Malware uses Ikarus and Emsisoft dual engine for detecting malware. It also has a good integrated behavior blocker. This behavioral blocker is sold by Emsisoft as its standalone product Mamutu. Emsisoft Anti-Malware also has a great system analysis module HiJackThis. It also features a command-line scanner. In its latest version EAM can also scan emails in Microsoft Outlook.

  • E-mail scan for Outlook:

Emsisoft Anti-Malware now scans incoming and outgoing mails directly in Outlook. Supports Outlook 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2010 x64.

  • Full integration of Emsisoft Anti-Malware Network:

Emsisoft's own cloud database already contains information about millions of programs, and helps behavior analysis do its job. There should be practically no more false alarms. You can explore the complete database at IsThisFileSafe.com.

  • Improved self-protection:

State-of-the-art malware is getting smarter all the time. It often avoids being detected by disabling installed security software. Emsisoft Anti-Malware protects you against manipulations of its own software in an efficient manner.

  • Automatic Game Mode:

Whenever a computer game is running in full-screen mode, Emsisoft Anti-Malware automatically switches into the new game mode. This mode disables all pop-up windows and allows you to chase highscores without any interruption.

  • Program starts quicker:

Our malware hunter now puts the trottle to the metal and is a lot quicker to operate.

  • Optimized Commandline Scanner:

The included commandline scanner is a real goodie for administrators and can now also be used to update the whole package.

My Verdict

Emsisoft Anti-Malware is really a good product and its detection and protection rate is good as proved by many testing organizations.




EAM already has many features. So I have not many wishlists

  1. Support more email clients.
  2. Support scanning in the background, even after closing the interface.
  3. Detect and offer scanning of removable drives.
  4. Offer to block any executable from removable drives.
