New in 2017.2: Faster software startup and more

Providing you with first class anti-malware without slowing down your system is a key promise for us at Emsisoft. So for our February product update (2017.2), our developers have been busy to further optimize several areas of our anti-malware software solutions to get you an even smoother experience. Below are the key highlights:

Emsisoft Anti-Malware & Emsisoft Internet Security 2017.2:

  • Improved integration with the Windows Security Center to avoid unnecessary alerts and Windows Defender popups while rebooting and restarting the software.
  • Improved startup speed of the software thanks to a new caching feature in the scan engine. This will also reduce the memory footprint during scans.
  • New dialog to define scanner default settings, such as detection of Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs), performance settings, and default actions on scan completion.

Emsisoft Enterprise Console 2017.2:

  • New feature to manage quarantine content of connected client machines remotely.
  • New webhook based reporting feature with updated documentation in help file.

Emsisoft Emergency Kit 2017.2:

  • New dialog to define scanner default settings, such as detection of Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs), performance settings, and default actions on scan completion.

How to obtain the new version

As always, so long as you have auto-updates are enabled in the software, you will receive the latest version automatically within an hour of availability.

Note to Enterprise users: If you have chosen to receive “Delayed” updates in the Update settings, you will receive the new software version no earlier than 30 days after the regular “Stable” availability. That gives you time to perform internal compatibility tests before a new version gets rolled out to your clients automatically.

Have a great (malware-free) day!
