Emsisoft's Performance in AVLab’s May 2024 Advanced In-The-Wild Malware Test

The AVLab Cybersecurity Foundation is renowned for its rigorous testing of security products against real-world threats. The May 2024 edition of their Advanced In-The-Wild Malware Test once again highlighted the exceptional capabilities of Emsisoft Enterprise Security, emphasizing its robust defense mechanisms and rapid response to malware threats.

Understanding the Test

AVLab Cybersecurity Foundation’s test is designed to mimic real-world scenarios, ensuring that the products tested are evaluated under conditions that closely resemble actual cyber threats. The test involves capturing malware from diverse sources, focusing on both pre-launch and post-launch detection rates.

This approach underscores the importance of stopping malware before it can execute its payload and the ability to eliminate threats that manage to initiate.

An important aspect of this test is the inclusion of Living off the Land Binaries (LOLBins), which are legitimate Windows components exploited by cybercriminals. This inclusion highlights the complexity of modern cyber threats and the need for security solutions to adeptly identify and mitigate such stealthy tactics.

Test Methodology

AVLab conducts its tests by collecting malware samples from various sources and executing these tests in controlled environments. The metrics used to evaluate performance include detection rates, false positives, and system impact.

The May 2024 test included enhancements such as introducing a delay in file downloads and refining data sorting to improve accuracy and reliability. These updates ensure that each security solution is evaluated under consistent and fair conditions.

Emsisoft’s Standout Performance

In the May 2024 test, Emsisoft Enterprise Security + EDR showcased outstanding performance. It achieved a perfect 100% detection rate, blocking all 521 malware samples tested. This result underscores Emsisoft’s comprehensive threat coverage and its effectiveness in identifying and neutralizing malware.

Emsisoft demonstrated impressive pre-launch and post-launch protection capabilities, with scores of 35.61% and 64.39%, respectively. This means that Emsisoft effectively managed threats at all stages, blocking a significant portion of threats before they could launch and neutralizing the remaining threats post-launch.
