The unique technologies in HitmanPro.Alert 3 are designed to stop threats before they emerge and aims to protect your vulnerable software, data and identity against current and future attacks, without requiring prior knowledge of the attack or malicious program.
No. 1 solution against police-themed ransomware
HitmanPro contains a unique feature called Kickstart. It can turn your USB flash drive into an easy-to-use rescue solution against police-themed ransomware, and other presistent malware that has taken your computer hostage or prevents normal computer use.
Defeating Rootkits and Bootkits
The toughest types of malware are rootkits. Rootkits embed themselves deep in the operating system where they hide from antivirus software. The longer a rootkit stays alive on a computer, the more profit the malware authors make because the computer is under their control.
Our proprietary Cloud Assisted Miniport Hook Bypass technology collects hard disk miniport driver information from clean computers an stores a representation of this information (a fingerprint of a few bytes) in the Cloud. When HitmanPro detects a hook on the hard disk driver, it consults the Cloud on how to work around it. This allows HitmanPro to bypass the rookit's hooks and examine the actual infected sectors. This works for ANY hard disk driver and not just the common ones.
HitmanPro is a 'crime scene investigator' and forensics lab in one. Instead of relying on virus signatures, it gathers actionable intelligence and examines the collected information to ultimately tell you which files act and look like malware. HitmanPro does not require prior knowledge of a threat to detect it, so no need to wait for your antivirus vendor to provide a detection signature.
