Emsisoft Anti-Malware succeeding in MRG Online Banking Browser Security Assessment

2013 seems to be our year! With a perfect score of 100% in the latest MRG-Effitas assessment, Emsisoft Anti-Malware 8.0 makes its mark once again. Being awarded for the best overall protection for your data in other comparatives throughout the year, Emsisoft Anti-Malware is now officially certified for providing the best online banking protection.

Unlike last year, the report was split into quarterly tests instead of one single report. The first part of every quarters report was a “Detection and blocking of Zeus” test, including over 100 Zeus malware samples. Secondly, every candidate had to withstand the “Prevention of data exfiltration from ssl protected banking sites” test by preventing active malware to perform any data exfiltration. We are happy to announce that we successfully passed against all of the 4 unique MitB attacks during the Q2 testing period.


Among other very sophisticated products, our Emsisoft Anti-Malware 8.0 was awarded with the ”MRG Online Banking Browser Security Certification” for Q2 2013. Please have a look at the download section of http://www.mrg-effitas.com for the complete report (as PDF).
