Biggest Facelift in 7 years: New Interface with Emsisoft Anti-Malware 9.0 on its way

After several months of intense beta testing, we’re incredibly excited to finally announce the upcoming release of Emsisoft Anti-Malware 9.0, our most impressive suite yet. This highly anticipated arsenal of tools against advanced digital threats will soon be available for download as a free upgrade for all existing Emsisoft customers or as a free 30-day trial on

This premium security update comes with an improved scanning and cleaning engine for enhanced detection and removal accuracy, enhanced cloud lookup supported by behavior-based malware detection, internal performance and memory usage improvements, and streamlined integration with the Windows 8 and 8.1 operating systems.

More than a Powerful Facelift


For those of you that don’t already know, the BETA version of Emsisoft Anti-Malware unveiled a new milestone in Emsisoft’s product design history – a complete interface overhaul that not only simplifies usability and feature management, but also helps to make Emsisoft Anti-Malware 9.0 the most powerful anti-malware available today. The new interface brings a cleaner and more sophisticated layout which has been specifically developed to enhance the user experience and dramatically improve ease of use.


The best anti-malware solution is only as efficient as the person who controls its tools and settings.

So, we’ve crafted our anti-malware with the user in mind, prioritizing simplicity and ease-of-use in a way that we think will satisfy even first-time users. Version 9.0 delivers an interface that is not only elegant and clean in its design, but – with its extensive features and customizable settings – we’re confident it is also the most sophisticated and powerful anti-malware software you’ll find anywhere.

The visual improvements streamline and unify a new interface, enabling first-time and experienced users alike to quickly find, view, and control essential features. While the main interface highlights only the most commonly used functions, the more advanced settings are still easily accessible.

We’ve also designed our new software to deliver unmistakable, color-coded warning boxes, that even a child could identify, to indicate your level of protection and whether or not any tools are deactivated.

Green is immediately recognized as safe and corresponds with being fully protected. Likewise, red corresponds with no level of protection, and orange represents a level somewhere in-between. We believe that this simplicity and distinct design are crucial to ensuring that there is never any confusion about how well you’re being protected.

Features like this make the extent of your online security immediately identifiable, and they are not only unique from anything we have developed in the past, but they are also unlike anything currently available in other anti-malware software. We’re convinced that changes like these will take any guesswork out of keeping your data safe and protected. And, as always: we are all ears for your feedback!
