Over the past month, our development team have spent most of their time fine-tuning our products and simplifying several structures in preparation for exciting new things that are on the horizon. Our biggest change with this release is the merging of Emsisoft Internet Security with Emsisoft Anti-Malware, as we announced earlier. The transition is expected to go smoothly, just like every other monthly software update. If you’d like to learn more about the reasons behind the merger and how it might affect you, please check out our article featuring the most frequently questions and answers on the Windows Firewall.

How to obtain the new version

As always, so long as you have auto-updates enabled in the software, you will receive the latest version automatically during your regularly scheduled updates, which are hourly by default. New users please download the full installer from our product pages.

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

Have a great, well-protected day!
