Money-saving bundle consisting of Emsisoft Anti-Malware and Online Firewall
Emsisoft Internet Security Pack is a powerful security suite combining two of their most popular applications, Emsisoft Anti-Malware and Online Firewall, in one money-saving bundle.
Emsisoft Anti-Malware 8 is a powerful anti-malware and antivirus tool – viruses having been grouped together into the malware category for the sake of convenience. The program’s web pages points out that while the software may not be free, it is low cost and provides a great level of protection that is generally only found in more expensive security suites.
One of the key features of this program is that it boasts two scanning engines, the second of which is provided by security experts BitDefender. Having two scanning engines in place not only means that there is a far greater chance of detecting any threats before they become a problem, but it also reduces the risk of false positives. As well as the new BitDefender scanner, Emsisoft’s own scanning engine has also been optimized for better performance.
Online Armor Premium 7 is a powerful software firewall that also includes a host of other useful security features.
Once installed, the program immediately begins to monitor network connections to and from your PC. Unsolicited incoming connections are blocked, keeping hackers firmly locked out of your system. And your installed applications aren't allowed to make internet connections unless Online Armor knows they're safe, or you give your specific permission.
In our tests Online Armor also did a good job of allowing legitimate connections on our local network, while blocking everything else. If you have any problems, though, the flexible rules-based interface means you can quickly tweak the system to suit your precise needs.
Includes a 3-PC, 1-Year license.
