    Anyone used it, what do you think of it?

    I just got myself a copy to compliment G-Data, as G-data is lacking slightly on the Zero-Day. I wonder what your experiences have been with the software.

    This is true but G-data rely more on signatures then the behavior blocker and thus its okay but not great.

    Just make sure you get the right Zemana product.

    Get the one tested by MRG.

    That is all.

    10-4, Over & Out.

    Which one? Both AntiLogger and Anti-Malware have been tested by MRG.
    Anti-Malware is a rebranded version of HitmanPro and is way behind on updates, currently it is build 151, HMP build 151 was released in March by Surfright:
    http://www.surfright.nl/en/hitmanpro/whatsnew
    EDIT: Zemana AM download is build 151, once started it updates to 171, but so it is less bad, but it is still 8 versions behind.

    There is a free and paid version of it's Antilogger product. There is also a rebagged Hitman Pro version product called Zemana AntiMalware as posted previously in this thread.

    As far as I am aware of, the MRG banking security tests used the paid version of the Antilogger product.

    The MRG zero day malware tests used the Zemana Antimalware product.

    The main thing to determine is what your protection needs are. The free version of Zemana Antilogger does not include the Anti-SSLlogger feature or the HIPS protection. If you want one of the best online banking protection available, you want the paid version of Zemana Antilogger.

    You are quite right.

    And the Zemana/HMP did very well in the just released MRG test.

    http://www.mrg-effitas.com/current-tests/flash-test-results/

    But I was actually referring to the other one, the antilogger.. since you want to compliment G-data.

    The AL product is completely different from G-data -- as I understand it. While the AM provides no protection.

    Just a few question for you Zemana pros

    When will antilogger paid have the system wide keylogger protection that is available for free version? in the comparison on zemana website, it says coming soon?

    Also, Zemana free keeps on making outside internet connections. Is this good? Is this a concern? I thought it was an antilogger, not suppose to phone home or somewhere else?

    Zemana free is still in beta, so probably when it is released.

    I'm waiting for it to be added to the pay-for version also. I have a theory that it may technology from key-scrambler.

    No, KeyScrambler encrypt the keystrokes and Zemana Free hides them.

    Yes, it tries to protect the keystrokes for every application. It could fail to do so with apps that use self protection like antiviruses, for example.

    Here is a link that compares the free to the paid version of the Antilogger product: http://www.zemana.com/product/antilogger-free/overview/.

    According to what is shown on the comparison web page, the paid version does not have system wide keylogger protection. I believe that is such since it was origionally designed for keylogging protection during financial transactions i.e. SSL connections. Also the paid version was originally a 32 bit application and Zemana like many other outfits had difficulties converting it to 64 bit OSes.

    Personally, all I care about is keylogging protection during online financial activity. If malware installs a keylogger, it's objective overwhelmingly is to steal personal id data during online financial activity.

    I also believe that Zemana introduced the free antilogger version to work out the "kinks" it had with 64 bit OSes and I view it as a beta test product.

    as far as piad version goes, only place I have seen it connect to are its own servers. It does update its whitelist of safe programs quite frequently. Note the whitelist is an option that can be turned off at which time you will plenty of alerts whenever you try to install anything. Also if not in the whitelist, it will scan the app in its cloud using its Intelliguard feature. Note this feature only exists in the paid version.

    So what is Zemana paid good for if it cant do the anti keylogging which free can do?

    Doesn't free also have financial malware protection via the extension on firefox? browsers?

    It's all in the link that itman posted: The full Zemana is basically a behaviour blocker, the free Zemana only encrypt or hide keystrokes.

    Believing that malware can only steal your data by capturing your keystrokes is fooling oneself. The full Zemana will block any program that try to do that and also any program that captures your screen, injects the browser to steal the data from it, access the physical memory or the registry, etc.
