Emsisoft – You’ve Done it Again!
Several years ago, we stopped recommending MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials / Windows Defender) because of its poor ratings and because of its poor protection. And this was about the same time as Malwarebytes stopped detecting a lot of the PUPs it once detected and removed. So we were on a mission to find a replacement for MSE and one for Malwarebytes.
We spent a month testing free and paid antivirus/anti malware programs – we tested at least a dozen. This is when we discovered a rather obscure (at the time) company called Emsisoft. We both tested it – and we tested it well. We used it on several computers. We used it on a virtual machine and threw all manner of malware and viruses at it, and it never failed us. We were amazed that a program that was not very well known beat out the big boys and the big two free antivirus program. But before we went forward and started to recommend it, we tested Emsisoft’s support team.
Keep in mind, at that time, we were not testing it as Cloudeight, we were testing it as individuals. We both wrote testing their support and we were again amazed when we received replies from their support team in a matter of hours – not days.
We made up our mind to start recommending Emsisoft when hardly anyone had heard of them. We were putting our reputation on the line; our faith in the effectiveness of Emsisoft was that strong.
Our decision to recommend Emsisoft has been vindicated over and over as Emsisoft continued to win award after award and continue to score among the best in independent lab tests.
Now, again, Emsisoft has received more awards from another independent antivirus testing lab, AV Comparatives. And we could not be happier to be affiliated with such great company and such great people as Emsisoft and the Emsisoft team.
We are happy to share with you the latest AV Comparative Test results – and this article from the Emsisoft blog.
It’s the second year running we’ve made the Top Rated Product list by AV-Comparatives, and the first time we got a Bronze award (or two, to be precise). This is what went through our heads, when the results came in:
Frank (QA): “This is amazing!”
Davlat (Sales): “Can you believe it? We beat the big boys again…”
Elise (Malware Lab): “Yes!! This is why we work our a** off every day. So worth it!”
Christian (CEO): “You know, we should try to be better next time…”
Monika (Marketing): “Three awards? How are we going to squeeze that into one single newsletter…?”
We’re really delighted to be recognized for producing marvellous anti-malware software. However, this by no means allows us to sit back and take things easy here at Emsisoft. Quite the opposite: We always strive to live up to our users’ expectations and set the bar higher every time. Malware never sleeps and nor will we.
Thank you for believing in us and being part of our amazing journey.
