Heimdal Security

As a continued commitment to our clients and their vulnerability to cyber-attacks, Practical Networks are now able to provide another layer of security.

Practical Networks are proud to announce their Partnership with Heimdal Security.

Heimdal 1

Heimdal is a security product by Denmark-based Company Heimdal Security.  Heimdal set new standards in financial malware detection by continuously following IT criminals’ footsteps and providing the best security solution for organisations as well as private individuals.

CTB-Locker, Cryptolocker, Cryptodefence or Cryptowall is likely the most advanced malware in the world, posing huge threats to businesses. With this in mind, Antivirus by its self is no longer enough.  Heimdal offers protection where antivirus products give up – offering Patching, Exploit blocking, Dropper protection or key delivery filtering.

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. Antivirus looks for files and actions, whereas Heimdal looks at traffic. Therefore, Heimdal and Antivirus work independently but in tandem.

2-way traffic scanning engine

Heimdal has a unique, client-based 2-Way Traffic Scanning Engine which protects you against Zero Hour exploits, dangerous web locations, malicious content from legitimate websites, cybercriminal attacks and data leakage. Heimdal is the traffic scanning alternative for any business.

 Unique TPA Engine

The unique, traffic-pattern Malware Engine is a perfect layer of extra protection for any Antivirus product. It enables you to detect and block new and advanced malware strains. Heimdal’s state-of-the-art technology is accredited by the US Department of Justice, the FBI and Europol. Heimdal uses traffic-based detection, while antivirus uses file and signature scanning.

 Software installer and patching

Looking for vulnerability intelligence? Heimdal provides you with essential intelligence about your vulnerabilities. It can also install and patch critical applications automatically, silently, with zero setup and without user interruption, while offering the flexibility you need. Patching is a key component in any IT security environment.
