Heimdal Pro is designed to run as supplementary protection to antivirus on Windows-based operating systems. It offers advanced malware security that is compatible with most third-party antivirus solutions.
At the core of Heimdal Pro is a Traffic Scanning Engine designed to detect and block new and advanced styles of malware, which traditional signature-based antivirus cannot detect. Heimdal studies the user’s traffic, identifying and blocking cyber threats before they develop into attacks.
Heimdal Pro also includes an advanced database focused on financial malware and a PC lockdown feature that takes the user’s computer offline in the event of a hacking attempt. This prevents the user’s computer from leaking data during an attempted breach.
Heimdal Security was founded in 2011, and currently has over 300,000 users. Highly scalable, the solution patches 12 million vulnerabilities and blocks 15 million malicious websites.
