is an antivirus platform
that includes anti-malware protection. Emsisoft uses two scanning engines
, combining its technology with Bitdefender Anti-Virus
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 behavior blocking analysis
which is extremely difficult to penetrate.
So despite it's name, Emsisoft Anti-Malware is an antii-virus program...see Emsisoft FAQs: Why is it called "Anti-Malware" and not "Antivirus"?
and if you are using it, there is no need for avast.
By using either ESET, EAM or avast with Malwarebytes Premium, you would be running one anti-virus and one anti-malware program not two.
Note: The free version of Emsisoft Anti-Malware does not include real-time protection in its freeware mode...it is a on-demand cleaner only. If that is the version you have, then you do not have it's anti-virus protection.
