Does Anyone Use Emsisoft's Mamutu With Immunet?

Recommended Posts

As an active and contributing member of CNET I was given the opportunity to try Emsisoft's Mamutu with a 1 year free activation. I would like to get your feedback on the program if you use it or have used it in the past. I just installed it and activated my license. So far it seems compatible with Panda Cloud Pro and Immunet Free (ClamAV enabled) as no false positives have been encountered. Your input would be appreciated so let me know what you think of the program.

Hi Ritchie again,

Mamutu is compatible with Immunet, ESET and many more. But I have uninstalled it!

Cheers,

Since it's only been about a day since installing Mamutu I haven't decided yet weather to keep it or uninstall it. Here are my thoughts so far. Reasons to keep: An extra layer of protection. This app is suppose to be good at detecting zero day, unknown or unseen threats. Detecting suspicious behavior of your currently installed programs. Works well with my current security programs including Immunet. Low system footprint. Creation of highly customizable allow rules for unknown applications that the community has not seen (yes, it is cloud based). Reasons not to keep: Redundancy, one look at my signature and you can see I am already using a layered approach to my PC's security so do I really need another layer? Comodo Internet Security has the Defense+ feature that can detect suspicious activity similar to what Mamutu does. False positives will occur until the program learns your system and installed programs. For now I'll keep it and see if any redeeming quality's emerge or if it's just taking up hard drive space without any real added beneficial protection. On another note, Mamutu is not an anti-malware app in the traditional sense as it has no scanning engine. Its main purpose is behavior analysis and detection of suspicious activity.

Hi,

As I had already Emsisoft AntiMalware, I found Mamutu redunadant. To have Emsisoft AntiMalware & Emsisoft Mamuto is like having at the same time both:

1. Immunet Plus (cloud- & computerbased databases) &

2. Immunet Free (cloud-based database)

Cheers,

CNET is not the only place that Emsisoft was giving away freebees. It makes a lot of sense that by giving away a bunch of free one year licenses their reason to do so was to build up their database thus increasing the effectiveness of the program while decreasing false positives to actual paying customers. Plus there will always be users that like the program and decide to purchase additional licenses. Interesting marketing ploy for a relatively new cloud based product.

Hi Ritchie,

Regarding cloud-based only frontrunners of the real main product:

(To compare Immunet & Emsisoft, I hereby exclude ClamAV!):

Immunet Protect

1. Immunet Protect Free (cloud-based only) (Freeware)

2. Immunet Protect Plus (cloud-based + computer-based Tetra (Shareware)

Emsisoft

1. Emsisoft Mamutu (cloud-based only) (Shareware)

2. Emsisoft Anti-Malware (cloud-based + computer-based) (Shareware)

To fastly increase the size of the cloud, Immunet uses Immunet Protect Free as a frontrunner!

Emsisoft's frontrunner Mamutu is normally not free, so I think, that Emsisoft has now got a second thought to make Mamutu into a freeware to increase the cloud for its main product "Emsisoft Anti.Malware".

Cheers,

sweidre

PS. I think, that soon we will see that Mamutu will be permanently free! DS.

As it stands right now Emsisoft will give you a free 30 day trial of Mamutu once installed (the freebees are no longer available). If they decide to offer Mamutu as freeware I believe that would make users that have already purchased a license quite angry! I would be if I dished out cash for it. Unless they came up with a free version with some features disabled, which is usually the case with freeware anyway, such as automatic updates disabled perhaps or some other setting(s).

You are right! In fact, Emsisoft created Mamutu from their full product Anti-Malware. Emsisoft should already at that time issued Mamutu as a freeware, but now it is too late. Unless they based upon Mamutu Paid will develop a Mamutu Free with some fuctions disabled!

Please ensure you add an exclusion to Immunet for C:\Program Files\Mamutu, otherwise Immunet will use a lot of extra disk IO scanning it.

 

I don't think you need to do anything special in Mamutu - on my machine it didn't seem be monitoring Immunet's agent.exe, but it did ask me if I wanted to block our IPtrya.exe when I rebooted.
