Antivirus looks for files and actions, whereas Heimdal looks at traffic. Therefore, what we and they cover varies greatly. Heimdal prevents hackers from taking data from your PC and moving it out of your network.
"In my opinion, Heimdal is the only anti-malware program you should need. I have had much fewer problems since I started using this program and I always get a green color to tell me my computer is 100% good and safe. It has given a couple of false positives but all programs do that. But I sent them a snip of the page they wanted to see and I will get to know what I need to do. I just love the way it works very silently in the background and updates what needs to be done and does not slow me down, as I am still using just 2GB RAM on Win 7 Pro 64, so if this program does not slow me or stop me from working or playing then I am a very satisfied customer and would recommend Heimdal to anyone and all. Thank you all at Heimdal for such a great program."
"Very good service, instant response to Danger
I have had a few attacks, well attempts to attack, but Heimdal was on the marks right away, blocking access for the culprit. Heimdal Security were also very helpful with information on how to do the clean-up so I could continue to work safely.
A big Thank You Heimdal Security."
Works great. My vulnerable programs are kept under watch, and when there is a new version they are updated automatically. Would not want to miss it anymore."
