Emsisoft Internet Security is a Antivirus & Anti-Malware & Firewall, all-in-one. It cleans and protects your PC from all internet threats: viruses, spyware, trojans, bots, adware and worms, reinforced by a strong firewall. It uses a triple-layer prevention engine: Surf Protection, Real-time File Guard and Behavior Blocker. Surf Protection blocks access to fraudulent and dangerous websites, while the Real-time File Guard scans for more than 10 million types of malware in real-time. It recognizes dangers immediately when they try to run or are being downloaded from the Web. New malware definitions (signatures) updates are available at least 24 times per day.
The third layer, the Behavior Blocker with Live Cloud-Verification, scans and monitors all running programs – all the time. It prevents new, sophisticated malware attacks and catches zero-day threats that aren’t yet included in the signature database. As soon as a program does something suspicious, it’s stopped and alerted. It includes Online Banking Protection to keep fraudsters away from your money by hardening your browser software. An intelligent firewall closes off and hides your system when using public networks.
Your PC will be practically invisible. Includes IPv6 support. The Firewall has minimal firewall alerts and is quick and easy to use, with the ability to evaluate the credibility of programs in a global context. It can remove potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) such as ads or toolbars.
Global Firewall Rules
Emsisoft Internet Security distinguishes between public and private networks. While strangers on the Internet should not be allowed to access your networking features, someone trusted in your private home- or office-network should be allowed to.
Configuration is easy and straightforward.
That dozen of rules displayed to the left represent the default settings, which are best for almost all users. The software works out of the box and doesn’t require you to be a networking specialist.
Emsisoft Internet Security enables you maximum control over all your program’s activities, such as in- and outgoing network communications and potentially spying behavior.
Known trustworthy programs are automatically allowed by default to avoid unnecessary and annoying alert windows.
Though, you can easily change each program’s application rule at any time, e.g. to stop outgoing connections to online services that you don’t trust.
If you unintentionally try to view a website that spreads trojans, spyware, or any other type of malicious software, Emsisoft Internet Security will prevent you from connecting and getting infected.
Real-time File Guard
This real-time protection layer checks all downloaded and modified files with the awarded super-fast Emsisoft dual-engine scanner. The best: You won’t even notice it’s there for you 24/7.
To stop brand new threats that aren’t yet known by signatures, Emsisoft Internet Security continually monitors the behavior of all active programs and raises an alert as soon as something suspicious occurs.
Every enabled networking program on your computer may be misused to get unauthorized access to your system. Emsisoft Internet Security’s advanced Firewall component hides those attack vectors from others. It also allows granular configuration of each program’s online visibility and its permissions to send and receive data on local networks and the Internet.
