Unique traffic based PC protection, combined with an Enterprise scale patching system
Antivirus looks for files and actions, whereas Heimdal looks at traffic. Therefore, Heimdal and Antivirus work independently but in tandem. Heimdal prevents hackers from taking data from your PC and moving it out of your network.
Part of the best in the Cyber Threat space
Heimdal Security is part of Gartner’s selected 25 on Cyber Threat intelligence and is part of the best in E-crime.
Heimdal delivers market leading threat intelligence to organisations across the world such as the FBI, the
Metropolitan Police and Lloyds Banking Group.
Developed by world champions
The Heimdal Security software was developed in 2011 by the 19th and 20th Team Defcon CTF World
Champions in hacking. Heimdal is now used to protect organisations across Europe against advanced attacks, wherever their users may go.
Even adds to leading protection
Antivirus products and Heimdal are a great security compliment to each other, because they address different
Endpoint security aspects. Today’s leading antivirus products offer great signature and file based scanning, with firewall and phishing protection, but they are still different from Heimdal.
What is the difference
The key difference in Heimdal to Antivirus products is that Heimdal focuses on the communication from and to the PC to combat and detect incoming 2nd generation malware, combined with patching to close security gaps used by hackers.
Works with any antivirus
Heimdal works with any antivirus engine on the market. The combined protection you receive will vary between the engines used, but Heimdal will always add traffic based protection against new 2nd generation attacks, where no antivirus product is able to intercept these attacks.
