Emsisoft Anti-Malware proves 100% detection of zero-day-threats

The independent IT security research organisation MRG-Effitas completed their Flash Test Series by the end of 2012. A total of 350 samples no older than 1 hour were used, with the test subjects having to prove whether they were capable of blocking brand new so-called zero-day-threats. In a second phase, the time in the wild was extended to 6 hours to see how the vendors reacted over a longer time frame. 18 different security applications participated in this test series.

Only 3 out of the 18 programs were able to block 100% of all samples being used. Amongst them: Emsisoft Anti-Malware, keeping a clean sheet and proving its effectiveness against any kind of malicious software.
