Introducing Heimdal’s Ransomware Encryption Protection

July 15, 2021 | Brigantia , Heimdal Security

Heimdal’s latest addition to their module stack is aimed at providing an extra layer of protection against ransomware attacks by blocking unwanted encryptions on your devices. Below we have put together a list of FAQs to explain how the tool works.

Will I have to replace my anti-virus to use Heimdal’s REP tool?

  • No, this solution is signatureless and will sit alongside any anti-virus.

What happens if I have legitimate encryptions happening on devices?

  • You can add them to an exclusion list which allows those legitimate encryptions.

How easy is it to deploy?

  • It is an MSI file which can be deployed through group policy. Alternatively, if you are already a Heimdal customer and have the agent deployed for the other modules you can simply turn REP on in your dashboard.

How much does it cost?

Can I have a trial?

  • Yes, a 30-day free trial is available!
