For the fifth time in a row, Emsisoft Anti-Malware was rated as ‘Advanced+’, the highest award possible, in AV-Comparatives’ latest performance test of anti-malware solutions.

Tested in May and released in June 2017, a total of 21 security vendors participated in the test. AV-Comparatives performed the following basic computer activities on an up-to-date Windows 10 64-bit computer system:

Emsisoft Anti-Malware observed ‘fast’ or ‘very fast’ scores in 7 of the 8 main categories, slowing down only on the very first launch of a new application (we want to make sure we thoroughly scan new files to ensure you the protection you expect from us).

Please note that the performance test only tells you how much impact a security product may have on a system compared to other security products; it is not a measure of protection capabilities.
