Does EAM Whitelist files?

Recommended Posts

Does Emsisoft Anti-Malware whitelists safe files after an initial scan for better performance in the future for those files that are deemed safe?

Not for the on-demand scan, no. We do whitelist files temporarily in the real-time protection. That isn't a persistent whitelist though. It means that every file is only scanned once by the File Guard with every given version of the signature database. On signature update, the cache gets flushed and again every given file is scanned only once again.

Thanks for the fast response.

 

that's good to know, I just bought a 10 year license for 12 PCs after seeing how light EAM is and the best thing is it's only of the very few and best AVs that actually detects PUPs! Huge selling point to me!

 

Cheers
