The sixth generation of the Windows protection software Emsisoft Anti-Malware has now been released. A number of powerful new features have been introduced:
- The scans are almose 450% faster now. The dual scanner engine has been completely rewritten and the new version makes optimum use of multi-core systems. This allows the computer to quickly return to more important work.
- It now uses much lower resource consumption, unlike many security programs, which consume too many system resources and make the computer noticeably slower. Emsisoft Anti-Malware 6.0 uses significantly fewer resources than earlier versions. This is complemented by an Advanced Caching System that self optimizes and becomes faster with every scan.
- Rootkit detection has been further optimized in Emsisoft Anti-Malware 6. It now detects classical file-based Rootkits such as TDL-3 and ZeroAccess and also the increasingly prevalent MBR (hard drive boot sector) infectors such as TDL-4 and Sinowal.
- Fewer false positives. Nothing is more irritating for the users than false alerts. If a file is falsely reported as a trojan or virus infected then this makes the user unnecessarily nervous. The new Emsisoft Anti-Malware 6 uses an internal analysis system to significantly reduce false alerts.
- Permanent free license: The old user accounts have been abolished. Emsisoft now uses a simple key-based system instead. A number of other things in the licensing system have also changed. Long-term customers now receive a bonus. License renewal will be 5 percent cheaper each year you renew. Even better: Users who recruit new users can take part in a reward program and receive a license extension free of charge. Commendable “recruiters” can thus permanently use their version of Anti-Malware free of charge.
Says Emsisoft General Manager Christian Mairoll:
A core idea in the development of Emsisoft Anti-Malware 6 was to significantly increase the speed while retaining our outstanding detection rate. One of the main criticisms of users is that security programs consume too many system resources and make their computer noticeably slower. With our system this is no longer the case.
Emsisoft Anti-Malware 6 secures your computer and ensures that viruses, trojan horses, rootkits, keyloggers and other Malware inventions of the online criminal community can no longer cause damage. You can download its freeware scanner version here.
