Why Heimdal ?
- Patches 99,5% of security-critical software
Heimdal patches Java 7 / 8, Acrobat Reader, Acrobat Flash, Quicktime, VLC Player, Silverlight and many other applications, covering 99% of security-critical software apps. Heimdal works automatically and silently, without interruptingng the user.
- Traffic scanning to block malicious traffic
Dangerous Internet traffic can be used to infect your workstations and network. This makes scanning and blocking malicious web traffic a core security component. Heimdal protects your workstations against cyber-attacks and infected servers, domains and websites, while also ensuring a safeguard against data leakage
- Supplement for Antivirus, which is reactive
Anti-virus looks for files and actions, whereas Heimdal looks at Internet traffic. Therefore, what Heimdal covers and antivirus products cover varies greatly.
Heimdal prevents cyber criminals from taking data from your workstations and moving it out of your network.
Heimdal works to compliment Anti-Virus
Even adds to leading protection
Antivirus products and Heimdal complement each other very well, 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.
Works with any antivirus
Heimdal works with any antivirus engine on the market. The combined protection you receive will vary according to the engines you use, but Heimdal will always add traffic-based protection against new 2nd generation attacks, whereas no antivirus product is able to intercept these attacks. Essentially adding a second layer of security to you network.
What is the difference?
The key difference between Heimdal and Antivirus products: 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 attackers. In unison, Heimdal offers cutting edge protection for endpoints.
