What's new in ThreatFire (formerly Cyberhawk)

  • Security software alerts can cause confusion about the appropriate action to take (block, allow etc). ThreatFire 4.7 reduces this confusion by significantly minimizing both the number and the type of alerts that require you to make a decision. This is made possible using two new techniques:
  • Behavior profiling: patent pending technology which groups threats into families based on common traits or characteristics of the threat — similar to the way authorities profile criminals. This technology makes ThreatFire capable of catching hundreds of variants of malware derived from the same original threat and helps you to make a more informed decision about any malicious activity on your computer.

ThreatFire is an extra security solution that you can use alongside your permanent antivirus to protect your computer against malware attacks and identity theft. Its advantage is that it provides behavior-based threat detection, in order to easily identify and prevent potential attack attempts.

The application runs in the background, monitors your system silently, alerting you when a suspected threat or a potentially unwanted program is detected and automatically quarantining known malicious items.

When running it for the first time, the program performs a security status check and detects whether the Windows Defender and the Firewall are on or off and if you have any antivirus program installed on the system.

The main interface is well-organized, displaying the current spyware and virus protection status. Also, it enables you to access detailed information regarding online threats, view the protection statistics and the system status.

Although it is designed to provide behavior-based threat detection, the application still includes a scanning tool, designed to find deeply hidden rootkits. You can either perform an 'Intelli-Scan' or a 'Full Scan'.

Choosing the first option means that only certain important sectors of your system are scanned, while the 'Full Scan' option performs an in-depth analysis of your PC. Moreover, you can schedule daily, weekly or monthly scan tasks.

The 'Threat Control' is the place where you can manage exclusions and denied items, access the quarantine, as well as the protection log. The advanced process and services manager allows you to view detailed information about every application that runs in your system.

The program also comes with additional tools, enabling you to setup custom security rules, but this feature is designed for advanced users only. ThreatFire is already configured to actively monitor your system for suspicious behavior, so changing its settings without knowing what you are doing might affect the system functionality.

In conclusion, ThreatFire brings additional protection to your system using behavior analysis. It is capable of detecting unknown threats that signature-based security solutions might miss.
