Here's how Heimdal™ Threat Prevention Home blocks ransomware at all stages:

I think we all agree that $ (billion) is a lot of money. World map

Especially when it's made from extorting people by encrypting the data on their computers. But this is how much the FBI estimated that ransomware creators will make by the end of 2016.

Encrypting ransomware is the biggest cyber threat of the moment - no doubt about it. And home users are hit the worst - they make up 90% of the attackers' target.

The main reason this happens?

People rely on antivirus as their only protective layer, but it's just not enough. Antivirus is often ineffective in blocking ransomware attacks.

This is why Heimdal fits right into your security habits:

  • It works proactively to block ransomware before it has a chance to encrypt your data;
  • It's fueled by extensive intelligence about cyber criminal infrastructure, such as servers and websites used to spread ransomware;
  • It's 100% compatible with any antivirus/antimalware program (Heimdal scans your Internet traffic, not your files or applications' code).

Here's how it does it:

Heimdal Anti-Ransomware Protection

First, Heimdal blocks the infection sources that spread ransomware. Second, it filters your Internet traffic and keeps malware from infiltrating your browser and other apps. Third, Heimdal blocks exploit kits that use vulnerabilities in outdated software to compromise your system. It also keeps your software up to date, automatically and silently. Keeping all of your software up to date blocks 85% of attacks that target your apps. In the fourth step, Heimdal blocks the connection to the ransomware server when it tries to drop the encryption key on your computer. At the same time, it protects your confidential data from being harvested and leaked to the malicious server.

"Excellent program in thought process and execution."

I've always been security oriented while on the internet. The thought that what I do could be spied upon has always been a concern for me. Across the board from my personal interactions to my online financial concerns.

I've research and have used some of the most prestigious software available and always felt something was lacking. I ran across Heimdal Security on a giveaway site and decided to download it.

After researching it I discovered that it could do the job of 4 different security related programs that I'd already owned Those programs are now gone and I won't be returning to them. I purchased Heimdal Security and I haven't looked back. The constant updating along with the informative blog that keeps you abreast of current threats is outstanding.

Heimdal Security has all your security internet related needs covered. It's constantly scanning the internet looking for malicious code or sites or malware and even ransomware that might try to invade your P.C.

I am completely sold and now on my second renewal and I plan on being a customer for life. This program is excellent 5 stars.
