Stay protected at home from the Petya ransomware outbreak with HitmanPro.Alert.

HitmanPro.Alert

Protect against ransomware, malware, and zero-day exploits with confidence

Does your current antivirus prevent breaches and infections without having any prior knowledge of attacks or malware? HitmanPro.Alert blocks the core techniques and exploits malware uses to hide from antivirus software. It also detects intruders like banking malware, remote access tools, and crypto-ransomware, simply by observing the behaviors that these threats exhibit. It even makes sandbox-aware malware terminate itself by vaccinating or ‘camouflaging’ your PC as a virus researcher.

HitmanPro.Alert, which includes the discovery and removal abilities of HitmanPro, turns your computer into a highly undesirable victim, automatically stopping and revealing attacks in real-time, without using virus signatures.

Ransomware protection

Even when ransomware sneaks past your current antivirus, HitmanPro.Alert can detect, remove, and reverse its effects. After ransomware is detected, HitmanPro.Alert's CryptoGuard technology automatically neutralizes the perpetrating program and restores the encrypted documents. And all of this happens without any user intervention.

Catch what other antiviruses miss

Regular antivirus programs stop programs and files that have been previously identified as malicious. Unlike other antiviruses, HitmanPro.Alert can prevent a brand new computer infection without requiring prior knowledge of the attack. It watches for any malicious behavior, analyzes the threats, and takes action against malicious files or programs.

Recognize devious attackers

HitmanPro.Alert was built specifically to disrupt attacks across the entire threat landscape, not just from webpages and email attachments. It offers exemplary exploit prevention and advanced malware remediation, severely limiting the abilities of skilled hackers to take over your computer.

Comprehensive remediation

HitmanPro.Alert automatically informs users when critical system functions are affected by untrusted programs and effectively reveals the presence of any malware that affects web browser functionality, and then proceeds to remove them. By encrypting your keystrokes, HitmanPro.Alert also prevents attackers from stealing your credentials or watching on what you enter on your keyboard.
