Heimdal PRO is designed to run alongside antivirus solutions, and is compatible with a variety of antivirus products. Heimdal is proactive and scans all incoming and outgoing Internet traffic (HTTP, HTTPS and DNS) for cyber threats, blocking them before they develop into attacks.
Heimdal always keeps security-critical software up-to-date automatically and silently. At the core of Heimdal PRO is a traffic scanning engine designed to block dangerous websites and malicious content that deliver ransomware, banking trojans, data-stealing malware and other threats that traditional signature-based antivirus cannot detect.
Heimdal PRO also includes a feature called VectorN Detection, which blocks both known and unknown malware by detecting communication patterns in users’ internet traffic.
