Is Emsisoft Anti-Malware compatible with most other AV's?

Recommended Posts

Is Emsisoft Anti-Malware still compatible with most other AV's? I use NOD 32 I've tried it on a test machine (W7 x 64) with NOD 32, and it seems to be working fine so far. I even have Webroot secure Anywhere (only AV without FW) installed on that same machine. If it is compatible then how is it able to accomplish compatibility with other resident / proactive shields? I understand Webroot Secure Anywhere (formerly Prevx) is designed to scan each file just after the user's AV has already scaned the file so that the two are not fighting to scan the same files at the same time. Does Emsisoft Anti-Malware use the same method as Webroot Secure Anywere for compatibility since they are both designed to work with the user's AV to add an additional layer of security? If that's the case i'm wondering how WSA, and EAM are not fighting with one another since they are both designed to scan each file just after the user's AV has already checked the file. Is there any documentation on how EAM is able to maintain compatibility?

While I am not aware of all of the technical details of how our real-time protection works, I do know that it has been specifically designed to be compatible with pretty much every anti-virus, anti-spyware, and anti-malware on the market. While I have not testing with every anti-virus software on the market, in my own testing I have yet to run across a single anti-virus software that conflicts with Emsisoft Anti-Malware.
