PSalzburg, June 2012 – The Austria-based security expert now offers Emsisoft Emergency Kit 2.0 for private and professional users. The utility , which protects against malware infections of any kind, is fully portable and therefore requires no installation whatsoever, ready to be launched directly from storage media devices such as a USB stick. Even read-only media devices such as CD-ROMs can be used for this.

Unlike many other products, the security kit does not specialize in one particular kind of malware or just current outbreaks. It also detects common and new threats in a reliable and comprehensive manner. Emsisoft therefore offers its users one of the industry's best scan engines for free. The superior detection rate has been proven several times through independent tests such as the Virus Bulletin RAP Test or Malware Research Group's yearly rating.

The highlights of Emsisoft Emergency Kit 2.0:

Free portable and complete package against malware infections. The only free dual-engine malware scanner, winning awards in numerous tests. More than five million signatures with hourly updates (if done manually) to remain as up to date as possible and ensure the best possible detection rate. Up to 450 percent faster scans thanks to optimization for multi-core systems and the completely revised scanner unit. Less consumption of resources through efficient programming. Improved rootkit detection thanks to Direct Disk Access scan mode. Both the classic file-based rootkits such as TDL-3 and ZeroAcces as well as increasingly popular Master Book Records infectors such as TDL-4 and Sinowal are detected and removed in a reliable manner. A new internal evaluation system means significantly fewer false alerts in practice.

Emsisoft Emergency Kit 2.0 consists of the following components:

Emsisoft Emergency Kit Scanner The malware scanner uses the established Emsisoft Anti-Malware scanner alongside its GUI. The program detects more than five million parasites with its dual-scan engine.

Emsisoft Commandline Scanner This scanner features the same functions as the Emergency Kit Scanner, but without the GUI. It is controlled instead by the command line parameters. Professional users can integrate the program into automatic batch actions in an efficient manner.

Emsisoft HiJackFree Experienced users can use this tool to detect and remove malware in a targeted manner. It is possible to take full control of the PC to directly access all active processes, drivers, services, autoruns and open ports.

Emsisoft BlitzBlank It is not always possible to simply delete malware during operation. BlitzBlank puts things right and removes files, registry entries and drivers while booting up before Windows or any other program is loaded.

Emsisoft Emergency Kit 2.0 is free for private users. For professional users, we recommend low priced helpdesk licenses as well as an emergency USB stick for 20 USD, delivery included.
