Breakdown of core features
Heimdal Threat Prevention scans users’ traffic in real-time, blocking infected domains and preventing communication to cybercriminal infrastructures. It is compatible and adds to any antivirus or firewall. Moreover, users can combine it with more Heimdal products to deliver an authentic Endpoint Prevention, Detection, and Response solution.
Privileged access management
The platform’s Privileged Access Management secures rights management flows and allows teams to elevate user rights or file executions. It enables IT teams to revoke escalations and supports zero-trust execution.
Heimdal Privileged Access Management has a lightweight interface that puts admins in control over the user’s elevated session. IT administrators can keep track of sessions, block elevation for system files, live-cancel user admin rights, set escalation periods, and instantly shut down system processes after session expiration.
Patch and asset management
With the Patch and Asset Management features, technicians can deploy updates, patches, and legacy fixes on the go. The software lets users deploy and patch any Microsoft and Linux OS, 3rd party, and proprietary software on-the-fly, from anywhere in the world and according to any schedule. In addition, it enables users to conduct inventory reports, force-update machines, review versioning, and secure assets against all threats.
Ransomware encryption protection (REP)
The Ransomware Encryption Protection extends the functionality of the traditional antivirus, facilitating the prevention and defense of endpoints against any type of ransomware attack. It protects devices against malicious encryption attempts initiated during ransomware attacks. Heimdal REP is universally compatible with any antivirus, increasing detection capabilities.
