Copenhagen, December 11, 2020 – Heimdal™ Security (Heimdal™), creator of the leading threat prevention security solution Thor Foresight Enterprise, is delighted to announce it has received the Anti-Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Solution of the Year 2020. The award was presented to Heimdal™ by Computing Security Awards. This year, the ceremony took place online on December 10, 2020, and brought together cybersecurity key players to recognise their contribution in today’s ever-evolving threatscape.

Heimdal™ has continuously perfected its product line-up, rapidly becoming a point of reference in threat prevention. First launched in 2014, the organisation has raised the bar in DNS Security and proved to be a game-changer in vulnerability management, also winning the Anti-Malware Solution of the Year in 2018 and being deemed a finalist in three different award categories in 2019.

Heimdal™ wishes to express its sincerest gratitude towards everyone who has shown their support. Being acknowledged as one of the winners of Computing Security Awards 2020 pushes everyone on the team to do their utmost and help the company excel in all areas of expertise.

“We are extremely proud that Thor Foresight Enterprise has been recognised once again as an industry-leading solution”, said Morten Kjaersgaard, CEO of Heimdal™. “DNS Security continues to be a cornerstone for Heimdal™. Our solution is already going through an intensive program of neural network training, which will further fine-tune our best-of-breed threat prevention with intelligent Predictive DNS. Automated Patch Management and Software Inventory also remain key elements in our offering due to their exemplary speed in deployment and ease-of-use, regardless of endpoint location.”, added Morten Kjaersgaard.

Thor Foresight Enterprise is the most advanced DNS Security tool, which also packs a flawless Vulnerability Management module.

The revolutionary Darklayer GUARD™ technology boasts threat prevention, detection, and blocking and greatly enhances an organisation’s ability to hunt and identify APTs, Data Leaks, Ransomware and yet unknown malware. Also powered by the VectorN Detection™ module, it uses Machine Learning on device-to-infrastructure communication to spot attacks that Firewalls and Antivirus can’t see, providing its users with a strong HIPS/HIDS and IOA/IOC add-on.

The X-Ploit Resilience technology allows for effortless remote installation of Microsoft and 3rd-party software updates and software inventory management, enabling companies to automate updates and avoid becoming victims of vulnerability exploits.

With Thor Foresight Enterprise, Heimdal™’s customers are able to achieve impeccable DNS security and reap the benefits of pre-emptive vulnerability management, all within a single interface – the Unified Threat Dashboard (UTD).
