Emsisoft

Emsisoft GmbH is an Austrian-based computer security company that produces antivirus software for Windows PCs. The company currently holds about 1% of the global market share in the antivirus software sector and is one of the youngest organizations in the industry.

Emsisoft was one of the first antivirus software vendors to release a working behavior blocker that did not fully rely on classic signature detection. This technology has earned the company consistent, positive recognition from organizations AV-Comparatives, Virus Bulletin, and PC Magazine.

Emsisoft currently operates under a virtual business model, with approximately 25 employees working remotely throughout the world, in Austria, Belarus, Brazil, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Ukraine, and the United States of America.

As of 2014, Emsisoft is 100% privately owned and relies exclusively on organic growth to maintain its independence.
