This week, we got a yet another award to prove our quality. The team at Emsisoft is excited that Emsisoft Anti-Malware got certified with the AV-Test Certified award. Following the Emsisoft product participation in AV-Test main test series in 2016 Emsisoft is now participating in the top three major antivirus testing labs: AV-Test, AV-Comparatives and VirusBulletin VB100.



AV-Test certified: The best antivirus software for Windows Home User

In January and February 2016, AV-Test continuously evaluated 22 home user security products using their default settings. With a focus on realistic test scenarios to challenge the products against real-world threats, Emsisoft Anti-Malware had to demonstrate its capability using all components and protection layers. The first test of Emsisoft Anti Malware instantly earned the AV-Test Certified award with the maximum scores in Detection and Usability. This seal of approval provides evidence that the tested product has achieved all of the levels of performance required and defined by AV-TEST.
