Emsisoft Scanner Technology

The Emsisoft scanner examines your hard disk for malicious files of all types. These include:

Two scanners detect more than one!

This is why Emsisoft works together closely with a technology partner. The Emsisoft scanner combines the finest scanning technologies of two companies. The scanners have been integrated at the lowest level in order to avoid unnecessary duplicate detections for the same malware. This results in significantly lower memory and resource consumption than if two independent scanner products were used.

A - Anti-Malware Engine

The Emsisoft engine originated in the anti-spyware and anti-trojan field and has developed into a world-class solution in the fight against malware. In addition to typical detection capabilities, the engine includes extensive identification of tracking cookies and malware traces in the registry and file system. We've also integrated advanced malware removal functions.

B - Anti-Virus Engine

BitDefender is one of the pioneers in the security software sector. From the time of the company's foundation in 1990, the focus has been on detecting viruses, worms and other malware with the highest degree of accuracy possible.


The Emsisoft dual engine is used by multiple products including:
