How are TSA Scores determined?
The Software Authority strives to be different! Our results are based on factual data and you will never see a non-certified product that you never heard of being rated highly for the sole purpose of pushing sales like we often see on other review sites.
With increasing computer processor speeds being able to handle heavy workloads and improving performance significantly, TSA Scores are focused more on how well a security product protects your system from malware, viruses, and threats as opposed to how much system impact does this security product have. Reality is, if you obtain a nasty Ransomware virus as an example, does having a product that uses limited computer resources matter if you can no longer access your computer?
The TSA Score is determined by analyzing the latest review data from multiple independent testing laboratories, other reputable third party review sites and our many years of experience in the security software industry. The results from these sources are then inputted into a proprietary formula that determines the final TSA Score.
Independent Lab Results
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.
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.
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.
