Founded in 2011, Heimdal Security’s purpose is to provide users with the most advanced technology in the industry. Not a traditional antivirus system, Heimdal is designed to work alongside other antivirus and Internet security applications to provide users with multiple layers of protection. Taking a proactive approach to online security, they scan your computer every two hours for impending threats to ensure that all systems are protected. If needed, corrupted apps are updated and restored to optimal levels. A nice feature is the fact that updating does not require the need to restart your system. This makes it possible to continue working without interruptions.
Installation requires the downloading of files from the website and allowing it to begin a definitions update. Once installed, Heimdal utilizes different colors to indicate a PC’s health status. Green means your computer is healthy, Yellow means that an update is needed and red means that the page or app was blocked and labeled malicious. The interface is easy to use and requires a minimal amount of disk space, causing very little drag on the systems resources. Heimdal Security is compatible only with Windows PC and supports Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, and Microsoft .NET Framework.
