Heimdal Security a Solution to the Rise of RansomWare

If you’re like most Internet Users, you’ll have seen in the news recently about how ransomware is effecting small/medium businesses, yet most businesses don’t have an advanced solution to protect their vital data and users against these hackers.

EC Computers have chosen Heimdal Security to be one of our Best of Breed solutions, a product 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 and persistent cyber-criminal attacks and their insidious tools.

“Heimdal Security Corporate provides a 90-94% enhancement on top of existing AV and firewalls against the lethal Locky ransomware” – Alan Case UK Country Manager, Heimdal

Heimdal Security is a 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. 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.
