Also any ideas how we got infected with emsisoft running on this machine

Please note that without any logs (or at least knowing what ransomware it is), all I can do is speculate. Usually (especially with businesses) it happens when an attacker brute forces a password for an account via an open RDP port, remotely connects to a workstation/server, manually disables the Anti-Virus software and any other security in place, and then manually executes the ransomware on the compromised computer. Usually once they have this kind of access to one system on the network, gaining access to the rest is trivial, even if the account credentials they have access to don't work on every computer on the network. They also usually look for and destroy any backups that are accessible from the workstations/servers they gain access to.

Any ideas what it is and how we get rid ?

Most ransomware deletes itself after executing, however we need to identify it before we can tell you anything more about it. I recommend uploading a copy of the ransom note and an encrypted file to ID Ransomware so that you can see what they say it is:

You can paste the link to the results here if you'd like for me to review them as well.
