Emsisoft is an Austria-based vendor offering anti-virus, firewall and mobile security offerings to home and business users. The company addressed the NSA report on its website, saying the company has found no evidence of the NSA infiltration on its systems. To keep its clients secure, the company maintained in a blog post that it uses email encryption, secure VPN for internal processes and actively researches new Internet threats.
"The NSA may have an edge when it comes to the multitude of entry points it has to intercept traffic. But the NSA isn’t doing anything other malware writers aren’t already doing. To get to our internal information, the NSA must ultimately overcome the same hurdles that every hacker and malware writer must overcome," the blog post said.
