The "2017.5" update brings new safety features to Emsisoft's products

In tests of security products for companies from the SME segment and individual users, the Emsisoft brand software has been repeatedly awarded for excellent behavioral protection in real time and impeccable performance of products. Yesterday's update "2017.5" brings new security features that you should write about.

The users of Emsisoft's programs in Poland are the sixth, the most numerous group of customers of this manufacturer - there are us, Poles, about 100,000. Before us are only users from the USA, Germany, Russia and France.

Thanks to WannaCry ransomware , these types of threats were on the list of all security teams, distributors, resellers and integrators who provide security solutions to end customers. It also turned out that the entire IT world, even not so much prepared for massive attacks using software and file sharing protocols, which clearly ignores good security practices that are rolled like a mantra. The reasons for this lack of professionalism can be found in the wealth of the portfolio of many companies, inadequate knowledge of attack vectors or the deficit of competent professionals in this area.

The Emsisoft company, as the creator and provider of protective solutions, takes responsibility for ensuring security against all kinds of ransomware threats. What's more, he claims that he is still the technological leader in the fight against malware that encrypts files. It is difficult for a producer to refuse enthusiasm and willingness, because there is a lot of truth in it:

  • Emsisoft was one of the first producers to block WannaCry's behavioral ransomware (without a signature in the signatures).
  • In our test for protection against ransomware threats , Emsisoft software has obtained the highest certificate, which confirms the effectiveness of these solutions in defense against unknown, malicious files encryption:

Only the best security products deserve the BEST +++ certificate from AVLab.
