    I am happy with f secure. It also has 100%. It has very effective deep guard.
    FP are still high but not a major concern.

    Sigh, when are they going to start testing Windows 10? Still see only 7/8.1 on these "up-to-date" mainstream tests.

    How can Emsisoft get less than Bitdefender when it uses the same defs and has an extra engine?

    Looks like most are getting FP's under control...maybe one exception. Anxious to see some of the Windows 10-AV test results. I wonder when that might be....I'm with J_L.

    Who knows? Perhaps when all of them are compatible with AMSI.

    First, they tested EAM; not EIS. Second, this wasn't a signature test but a 0-day exploit test. I believe Bitdefender IS has separate exploit protection. All EAM has is its behavior blocker.

    Actually, I am surprised to see that EAM did that well in this test. It actually did better than Eset which does have exploit protection if you factor in the user assists. Also EAM did get penalized for the false positives it had.

    Still don't understand why they removed the ability to view multiple time periods at once. Like the past 6 months, year, etc.. One month isn't the best sample to look at.

    What exactly is the difference between EAM and EIS-I keep asking this question and none seems to know the answer, is the firewall in EIS only difference between EAM and EIS or there is more?

    You got an answer from the Fabian =
    No, they are otherwise identical.

    I am pretty sure the Real-World-Protection Test is not a 0-day exploit test, though it may contain some urls wich lead to drive-by downloads.

    Bitdefender has probably a more aggressive web filter and prevents downloading malware in the first place. Further, Bitdefender also has its own behavior blocker, which has a higher blocking rate than Emsisoft's, at least with the malware that AV-Comp. is throwing at it.

    According to the test report they were indeed exploits at the target destinations. However, they could have been blocked prior to reaching the target using IP/URL blacklisting and the like.

    i'd imagine it's because bitdefender's products use other in-house technologies that aren't a part of their SDK, just like emsisoft's products use their own in-house technologies in addition to the engine stuff they license from bitdefender.

    Damn it I forgot Fabian answered me, I cannot understand how could I forgot that Fabian has answered me, I obviously have hollow memory.
    But how much there is a difference with firewall in EIS compared to EAM when it comes to testing-I don't see much a difference at all, hmmm....

    EIS and EAM are so identical, that you can export rules from EIS and import them into EAM and it works fine.

    Not all test cases involved exploits. Test cases involving exploits could be few or many.
    A product does not have to block the exploit to pass. Not only can they pass from an IP/URL block as mentioned but also by signature/behaviour blocker, etc.

    Why Quick Heal participates in these 'useless' tests! :rolleyes: How will their loyal users react if they see this? They should immediately withdraw from AVC. Their only boost point is regular VB100 certification.:isay:
