Hi quietman7,

 

TWH has left Zemana and ida15 didn't log in for a long period. I updated the post with latest features and usage, and hope to see the thread grow with good discussion for the betterment of the product. Thank you very much for listing the thread in the product list. :)

 

Kind regards,

Valinorum

Zemana's web site indicates it includes an Anti ransomware protection modules. With the widespread occurrences of ransomware we see these days, folks may be interested in a more detailed explanation of how the ransomware protection modules work.

Zemana uses Pandora cloud-sandbox. Here the files are first executed and analyzed against file encryption etc on the cloud with Pandora and if they are okay, they are allowed executed on the user-PC. Pandora works as a combination of cloud reputation database (blocking previously unknown files), and a cloud sandbox, where suspicious samples are sent to the cloud, and analyzed there. If a sample is detected as malicious, all Zemana users (even where Pandora is turned off) are protected in the future against that specific threat.

The query is rather subjective imho. Programs listed here are some of the best we see in the anti-malware community. I personally use Zemana as my main anti-malware along with my regular anti-virus. But one should remember that there is no product that can detect everything with 100% certainty hence we have such amazing community where knowledge is shared so that developers can update their products which in turn saves countless computers. 

 

If you have suggestions regarding this product or have samples that it failed to detect, report it here and the developers will be notified. 

 

Regards,

Valinorum

Zemana has the quickest 'new build available' updater of any av software I've used.

 

Always found any problems I had resolved within a day after clicking on the 'send feedback' link at the bottom of the main GUI and giving details there.
