Heimdal Security Thor Antivirus Review [2019]

heimdal security thor review


Heimdal Security Thor uses a hybrid advanced beahvioural scanning and real time cloud scanning plus machine learning to identify threats and possible threats before they reach out for your devices. Heimdal Security Thor also boast a high detection rate of viruses, ransomware, Trojans, phishing sites and malware. The highlights of their protection is the amount of security that they provide to ensure your safety from the phishing sites.

Also, the “Advanced behavioural scanning” does identify threats a way earlier and ends up stopping any risk of an infection. Another perk of using Heimdal Security Thor is it won’t slow down your computer.

How it works?

Most of the ransomware attacks that happened in recent history are new and more than 3/4 of them were not even listed in any virus database. In other words a normal antivirus won’t react or response in an effective way to slow down the infection nor getting rid of it. This is where Heimdal Security Thor comes to the play.

According to Heimdal Security’s point of view, it is far better to stop an infection even before it is happening rather than getting rid of an infection as it may have already compromised your personal data plus system performance. Another highlighted feature of Heimdal Security Thor is that it updates all your apps automatically and this feature alone is more than worthy alone to defend against 75% to 90% of different attack angles.

So, to pull this out the Heimdal Security Thor is scanning all of ongoing and outgoing internet data packets and as soon as they detect any possible malware attack, spyware or an ransomware, they simply quarantine it and blocks it from reaching your computer system with incoming data packets. Because of this filtration system which is known as the “advanced behavioural scanning and real time cloud scanning” the malware viruses cannot collect your data nor transfer them back to their creators.

With Heimdal Security Thor, you don’t have to be in fear of any data breaches as it continuously monitors and protects you from malware, spyware, ransomware, viruses, trojans and phishing attempts.
