Yes you should be fine.

Emsisoft Anti-Malware is an antivirus platform that includes anti-malware protection which uses two scanning engines and three security levels (or layers) of protection to prevent the installation of malware and stop malicious processes before they can infect your computer. These layers consist of surf protection, a dual-engine file guard, and advanced behavioral analysis which is extremely difficult to penetrate. EAM continually monitors the behavior of all active programs looking for any anomalies that may be indicative of malicious activity and raises an alert as soon as something suspicious occurs. The behavior blocker is able to detect unknown zero-day attacks without signatures.

EAM combines its technology with Bitdefender Anti-Virus utilizing live cloud-verification for superior detection and removal of malware infections effectively. Emsisoft Pro offers a full anti-malware solution which you can run side by side with your existing antivirus as extra protection without conflicts. Compatibility with other security products is constantly tested.

Emsisoft FAQs: Will it run on my PC?

We have spent considerable time building Emsisoft Anti-Malware in a way that makes it compatible with almost all other antivirus programs!

 

Emsisoft Anti-Malware has the added advantage of blocking the installation of most Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) (such as adware, spyware, unwanted toolbars, browser hijackers).

Hi JST :)

Which edition of Kaspersky do you have (product name and year), same for Emsisoft Antimalware?

That shouldn't matter. Emsisoft Support previously advised Kaspersky's software works fine with their products.

After doing some more research, I did find a couple of Kaspersky users within the past few years who reported a problem with EAM. Fabian Wosar (who also helps here at BC) addressed the issue in this topic (Post #4)

What you actually want is Emsisoft Anti-Malware to ignore all activity originating from the Kaspersky processes. To do that, you have to add a process exclusion for the Kaspersky processes pretty much the same way you excluded the EAM processes in Kaspersky.

I know that, I want to know if I can find a more up to date documentation on Kaspersky's website about it, because the one I looked at is for Kaspersky Antivirus/Internet Security 2013. So I want to see if he's using 2013, 2014 or 2015 and take a look at it :P

Kasprsky Antivirus/Internet Security 2013 is the most recent I found too. However, some anti-virus vendors will tell you not to use anything with their product so I would take that kind of info with a grain of salt anyway. I trust Fabian and the EAM staff, many of whom are Security Colleagues who assist at sites like this.3

Found it! List of applications that are incompatible with Kaspersky Internet Security 2015, right here:

http://support.kaspersky.com/11175#block2

Kaspersky will asks you to remove Emsisoft Anti-Malware 5.1 when you are installing it (it will do it automatically), however, I think we are on Emsisoft Antimalware version 9 aren't we? Or higher than 5 at least? Hence the two products will work well together, as previously mentionned by quietman. So everything's good! :) That's the page I was looking for haha!
