    Isn't this just a summary comparison of all the MRG flash tests? :doubt:
    With some nicer graphics :)

    True, but still pretty decent results for a traditional blacklist type security program. There's a curious absence of DefenseWall on that report though, probably because it still hasn't been breached and has a higher score than Emsisoft (100%).

    Yeah could be that 100% or because it relies on other things and they wanted to compare signature engines :)

    Exactly Noob. They are only comparing anti-virus and anti-malware software.

    Oh I'm sure the DW absence is pure coincidence. Notice Zemana is also not present either.

    DW and Zemana are entirely different products though. It's entirely justifiable that they aren't there.

    Even MRG categorizes them separately.

    the main advantage is that they`re using IKARUS engine. emsisoft`s engine is... you do the guessing :rolleyes:

    Probably because Zemana haven't done all the tests? xD
    (Some programs joined later)

    Exactly! :thumb:
    The List includes AV and AM products; similar to EAM 6.0.
    The last time I checked, DW and Zemana were not AV and AM products...:argh:

    Zemana and Defensewall HIPS are entirely different than Mamutu which is included in Emsi? I realize they may be categorized differently in the anti-malware world but they are not so different to justify exclusion in this Emsi advertisement IMO. Also, in this test SAS and MBAM are in different categories on MRG than Emsi but are included in the Emsi results ad. Actually many of the anti-malware programs listed in the Emsi ad have HIPS and sandbox components.

    I think SAS and MBAM are in a separate category because they're secondary scanners.

    Zemana and Defensewall have no scanners, every one in their list is a scanner.

    I am curious regarding Emsi how many times their scanner detected malware as opposed to Mamutu? If their scanner detected malware in the tests then I can see where excluding non-scanners in results. If Mamutu is what mainly caught malware first with Emsi then I think it is more relevant to include the likes of Zemana and DW.
