New: Emsisoft Anti-Malware 12 – Keeping you safe from ransomware

blog_main_eam12

Ransomware works differently to any other type of malware: Instead of taking over your computer in order to sell its computing power on the black market, ransomware directly asks you for money. The ransom payment is required to get back access to your now-encrypted documents and files, once you get infected. If you are lucky, the ransomware author made programming mistakes which allow us to create a free decryption tool. If not, you’re doomed, if you don’t have a working backup of your data.

That’s why protection has never been as important as today. Malware cleaning can’t bring back your files, you have to make sure they don’t get encrypted in the first place. Protection is key.

During the past year, infections with ransomware went from “high” to “epidemic” levels and our malware research lab worked hard to improve our proven behavior blocking technology to stop them all. While individual patterns change, the actual behavior of ransomware always remains the same, and that’s where we can safely catch it. But that’s just one aspect of the many news in our brand new release:

Enhancements in Emsisoft Anti-Malware & Emsisoft Internet Security 12

Improved Behavior Blocker

Specifically trained to block all types of ransomware and for more precise detection of totally new variants of online threats like trojans, bots and viruses.

Improved Scanning Engine

Optimized for detection and removal of potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) like browser toolbars, adware and other data collection modules, that represent a major nuisance for Windows users today.

Improved Anti-Malware Network

File database lookups to verify scanner- and real-time protection alerts. Multiple layers, including reputation analysis, clean-databases and collective malware databases, help to avoid false detections. 

Revised Whitelisting

A feature that allows you to create scanner- and real-time – protection exclusions of programs and folders, now with flexible support of wildcards and environment variables. Most useful in corporate environments.

Unique Emsisoft features

  • Focused on nothing but protection, with no bloat – while most vendors load heaps of funny but unneeded features and add-ons onto your PC to slow it ultimately down.
  • Specialized in finding and removing potentially unwanted and annoying programs (PUPs) that already make about ¾ of all infections today – while most other protection products install questionable toolbars and adware themselves to make some extra money.
  • Pioneer in anti-ransomware technology as part of the advanced behavior blocking component that proofed itself for more than a decade by now, catching ransomware before it causes any damage, while many other anti-ransomware products stick to finding encrypters only by their symptoms once the damage starts to happen.
  • Said to be the most privacy conscious antivirus/antimalware vendor around, reducing the information to the Internet to a very minimum and giving the user full control over those settings – while most vendors track your online activities on cloud servers in foreign countries.

Big news for enterprises: Free management console available

Emsisoft Enterprise Console allows you to manage Emsisoft Anti-Malware endpoint protection in local and remote networks from 3 to 500 clients.

Protects Windows Servers too

When installed on a Windows Server operating system, the software runs as Emsisoft Anti-Malware for Server, with optimized routines to protect file servers silently without any user input needed.

    I have 305 days left on my current version. Is the new version 12 available to me as an update?

    • Christian

      Yes, of course. All software updates are always included for the whole license period.

      • Dennis Pillow Sr.

        How do I go about getting it?

        • Christian

          If you have automatic updates enabled, you have already got it via updates. Click the product logo at the left top to see the version number details.

            Just ran Update even though I have automatic updates enabled. It says I am up to date. Then clicked on About and says I am running version 10.0.0.5735 Why did it not update to version 12? I am running Microsoft Vista. Is that the problem? If version 12 is not compatible with Vista am I fully protected with my current version?

          • Christian

            Windows XP and Vista are no longer supported, as announced several times in the past, see here the posting from mid 2015: http://blog.emsisoft.com/2015/06/24/support-for-windows-xp-and-vista-will-end-april-2016/
            Please consider an upgrade to a newer operating system.
