Emsisoft Anti-Malware 11 graduates from beta, here’s what’s new in it
A few weeks ago, we reported that the beta version of Emsisoft Anti-Malware 11 was released.
And now, the company has released the stable version to all users.
You may have observed from the screenshot above, that the interface of the application, looks very similar to Emsisoft Anti-Malware 10. And that’s because it is true, the company says it has kept the visual changes to a minimum, whilst improving the app’s features.
Emsisoft Anti-Malware 11 can now detect zombies, not the ones which go Brainsss….., but a new species of malware which hijack system processes and inject some malicious code into it, thus bypassing being detected by the majority of antivirus programs. These baddies will be detected by the Emsisoft Behavior Blocker protection module.
The latest version of Emsisoft Anti-Malware is capable of detecting known malware behavior patterns and blocking them automatically without prompting the user’s decision. It will also quarantine persistent malware which try to run on every reboot of the PC. The behavorial blocker can also put up a fight against ransomware such as Cryptowall or Cryptolocker.
Emsisoft is taking a leaf out of Microsoft’s book, or more specifically, Windows 10 Updates, to give Business users, a delayed update cycle. Enabling this update feed will give the users some time before they have to install the updated version of the program. This is actually a pretty cool feature, and I hope the company extends this to regular users too.
The company has announced that Emsisoft Anti-Malware and Emsisoft Internet Security 11 are not supported on Windows XP and Vista, and will not tun on the operating systems anymore. Such users who are using version 10, will continue to get updates for the virus database until April 2016.
If you read my previous write up, you would be aware that I reported some performance issues I experienced with the beta version of Emsisoft Anti-Malware 11. The anti-virus prevented many apps from running, even though they were harmless and legit apps (like Revo Uninstaller, Notepad++, etc).
All these issues seems to have been fixed, and the app works flawlessly, just as it was intended to be.
Emsisoft Anti-Malware 11, marks the first version of the app, to come with native support for 64-bit operating systems. The installer available on the website, contains both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions, built-in, and will install the one which corresponds to your PC’s operating system.
Download Emsisoft Anti-Malware 11 from the official website. Users of version 10 will receive the updated version automatically.
