• Deep cleaning: The solution performs a deep clean of your system in order to target, identify, and destroy a host of known and unknown threats. The system recognizes many common threats thanks to a vast malware database (more details below), and it even identifies unknown menaces by locating attackers’ malware signature, which are tiny traces of code that is left behind after an attack occurs.
  • Complete software protection: The system bolsters the defenses of every program installed on your machine or network to protect against zero-day threats, which occur when attackers exploit software vulnerabilities in order to gain access to your system. These extra layers of security help to protect even the weakest areas of your security system.
  • Automatic file backup: The software creates automatic backup copies of all of your files the moment an attack is detected. Once a threat has been safely neutralized, the system restores your files to their original state so you can get back to work.
  • HitmanPro Alert: The HitmanPro Alert premium product tier uses continual background scanning to protect your system as you work with. Any infected files the system finds are immediately deleted and replaced with safe backup versions, mitigating the damage caused by disruptive attacks. Since the tools work autonomously in the background, you will never need to worry about getting infected because you forgot to run a scan.
  • Vast knowledge database: The system utilizes data from four different security labs, including the SophosLabs database used by Sophos, HitmanPro’s parent company. That means that the software is continually learning and adapting to a host of evolving threats by compiling data from multiple sources in order to keep you safe and secure.



Second Opinion Malware Scanner

If your child is not feeling well and you suspect he or she has a virus infection you’re going to visit your doctor. But what do you do when the doctor tells you that he cannot find anything but your child still does not feel very well? Of course, you go to visit another doctor for a second opinion.

This is the same what HitmanPro does for your computer. HitmanPro is a second opinion scanner, designed to rescue your computer from malware (viruses, trojans, rootkits, etc.) that have infected your computer despite all the security measures you have taken (such as anti virus software, firewalls, etc.).

Why A Second Opinion?

Research shows that computers are still run a chance of getting infected because the existing anti virus program is not giving you a 100% protection. “32% of computers infected, despite presence of anti virus program.”

Just relying on a single vendor is not sufficient to completely protect you. You do need a second source to make sure you are secure. But in most cases, installing a second anti virus program is not a viable solution. Two programs are effecting the performance of the computer dramatically, and sometimes even conflict causing the computer to crash.

HitmanPro is designed to work alongside existing security programs without any conflicts. It scans the computer quickly (less than 5 minutes) and does not slow down the computer (except for the few minutes it is scanning). HitmanPro does not need to be installed. It can be run straight from a USB flash drive, a CD/DVD, local or network attached hard drive.

Behavioural Scan

SurfRight has done an extensive research of malware files to determine the common characteristics (behaviour) of malware. The HitmanPro client uses this research in its Behavioural Scan, when it scans the computer for virus activities or suspicious files that have the characteristics of malware.

Scan Cloud

For the files that are classified as suspicious, the HitmanPro client sends a request to the Scan Cloud for confirmation if these files are indeed malicious. The Scan Cloud is a cluster of multiple computers, residing on the Internet. The Scan Cloud will respond to this request with the answer:

  • Safe
  • Malicious
  • Unknown

When the file is unknown, the HitmanPro client uploads the file to the Scan Cloud where the file is scanned using the anti virus programs of 5 different vendors. Each of these anti virus programs analyzes the file and responds with “safe” or “malicious”.

Malware Removal

When the file is classified as malicious by the Scan Cloud, the HitmanPro client is placing the infection into quarantine. Various techniques ensure that all infections are completely removed without false positives.
