What Is Thor?

Thor is a security product launched in 2011 by the Denmark-based company CSIS Security Group. In early 2014, Heimdal Security spun off from CSIS Security Group and became a separate entity.

Today, Heimdal Security works with major corporations, public entities and banks across the world in fighting against organized cybercrime groups and their malicious actions. Since its inception in 2011, Thor (formerly Heimdal) set new standards in financial malware detection by continuously following IT criminals' footsteps and by providing the best proactive security solution for organizations, as well as private individuals.

Thor takes a special interest in gathering market intelligence about cyber-criminal actions in order to provide clients with top protection against the most advanced forms of malware.

Thor Foresight Home has been specifically designed to protect the user from financial and data stealing malware while doing banking operations and keep him safe from Zero Hour malware and security exploits frequently employed by IT criminals.

Thor Foresight Home not a "Traditional" Antivirus Solution

Thor Foresight Home is not a traditional antivirus solution. Thor Foresight Home is a cyber threat security suite with 3 key layers of protection, especially engineered to protect you from financial and data stealing malware. Thor Foresight Home is a proactive security solution that filters cyber threats before they reach your system, but also during and after cyber attacks. It does not work like a traditional antivirus, but rather complements it. Heimdal is focused on proactive Internet security, while antivirus is focused on reactive security. Thor Foresight Home protects the user's online banking by checking the user's Internet traffic and blocks sending data such as passwords or credit card details to a malicious server or website that may be controlled by cybercriminals.

Thor detects and protects your system against the latest financial malware threats by using advanced heuristics and proactive scanning technologies. The Thor intelligence database is also involved in the process of detecting and blocking cyber threats and cyber attacks. Thor, through X-Ploit Resilience, identifies and automatically updates 3rd party software on any computer it is installed on so that cybercriminals won't be able to take advantage of any vulnerability.

Thor Foresight Home features at a glance:
  • Essential add-on to any Antivirus
  • Enhances any Firewall
  • Unique Traffic-based Malware detection
  • Blocks Malware before it reached your PC
  • Multi-layered, AI Powered Protection
  • Secures user's Web-Browsing
  • Secures user's Online banking & Payments
  • Phishing Protection
  • Automatically Updates the user's Applications

Thor Foresight Home has 3 main security components: (1) Darklayer GUARD, (2) VectorN Detection, and (3)  X-ploit Resilience
[Image: lV6Dbhp.gif]

1. Darklayer GUARD

Darklayer GUARD  is a two-way traffic scanning engine that allows Thor Foresight Home to block network communications when it detects zero-day exploits, ransomware, data leakage, and next-generation attacks. DarkLayer Guard protects the user from attacks before they are compromised.

In DarkLayer Guard the user is given two (2) options to turn on/off "Traffic Filtering". When DarkLayer Guard is "enabled" Thor Foresight Home will apply a filter on the network adapter that will scan for infected websites and other web locations (servers, online ads, etc) that can potentially install malware or be used as a gateway for cyber-attacks. 

DarkLayer Guard changes the DNS for IPV4 and IPV6 (will be backed up in a registry) and will filter all the web location that the user goes to via a database that is set locally in the Heimdal directory. If a website is identified as "infected" it will be blocked. If a website is "not blocked" after being processed through the local database it will need to pass a second step. The website will be parsed through another database (cloud based) where it will be checked again (second check). If it's "malicious" then it will be blocked. If it's "safe" then the user will be able to see the website/banner normally. All this filtering process takes place in milliseconds and will not affect the user's internet connection speed.

2. VectorN Detection
VectorN Detection uses Machine Learning (MLD) technology to perform an in-depth analysis of all incoming and outgoing HTTP, HTTPS, and DNS traffic. It is designed to analyze the user's internet traffic patterns to identify known and ukown malware attacks blocking second-generation malware. Thor's VectorN Detection engine is a new feature and its purpose is to search for patterns within the blocks that Thor's Traffic Scanning records. 
  • It works across-the-board on any Windows device;

  • It does not rely on scanning the code or auditing any system processes. Instead, the new technology uses Machine Learning Detection (MLD) to perform an in-depth analysis of all incoming and outgoing HTTP, HTTPS and DNS traffic.

  • It matches Machine Learning (MLD) insights with Indicators of compromise/attack (IOC/IOA) and network forensics, turning Thor Foresight Home into a unique, proactive cybersecurity suite.

  • It helps users discover even hidden, second-generation malware that tries to infect the endpoint or attempts to harvest data from the compromised system.

By tracking device-to-infrastructure communication, this technology enables users to detect and block advanced malware, regardless of the attack vector.


If Thor Foresight Home's Traffic Scanning is blocking a specific domain or multiple domains at a specific time of the day, VectorN Detection will consider this a pattern and will inform the user that there might be a possible threat. 

  • A domain is blocked multiple times a day in a very short time period.

  • A domain is blocked every day at a specific time 

  • Multiple domains are blocked in a very short time period. 

Let it be noted that when a pattern is found, that means something on the machine tries to reach the blocked domains but Thor Foresight Home does not allow that. It's recommended to run the antivirus you have at your disposal.

3. X-ploit Resilience
Thor Foresight Home's X-ploit Resilience is responsible for keeping your third-party applications up to date, patched with the latest updates available. X-ploit Resilience displays all third-party applications that are installed and monitored. The interface shows the version installed of all third-party applications, its "status" and two (2) different check markings, (a) one for choosing whether the user wants to monitor that particular software, and (b) one for turning the "autoupdate" feature (on/off).

X-ploit Resilience

Vulnerability Patching
Thor monitors and automatically updates a varied range of software applications. The patches are downloaded directly from the official servers and we only add special codes to install the patches silently and at the correct time. Thor will never close a running application or automatically reboot the PC after the updates have been installed. Thor will never request permissions or show UAC (User Account Control) pop-ups, even if the UAC (User Account Control) is enabled. This is part of the silent installation process. 

The applications included and monitored in the X-ploit Resilience are selected based on the following criteria:
  • One or more versions contain vulnerabilities, which are corrected in updated versions
  • Vulnerabilities pose a security risk and are therefore actively used by cybercriminals.

The Thor Security Solution

Thor Free has limited functionality, while Thor Home (Premium, Foresight, and Vigilance) offers the full benefits of Heimdal's protection components against cyber security threats and attacks. 

Thor Premium product line-up includes 2 main product branches: Thor Foresight Home and Thor Vigilance. The products complement each other, and they should be combined in order to offer maximum system and network protection. Thor Foresight Home as stated previously has been specifically designed to protect the user from financial and data stealing malware while doing banking operations, etc. Thor Vigilance is the reactive protection side of Thor's product suite. It is the next-gen antivirus solution that reacts to infected files found on the system. It complements the Thor Foresight Home product module to offer all-around protection. It is flexible, easy to use and it offers a wide variety of scanning profiles to fit the user's everyday needs.

Without a doubt it is the DarkLayer guard. Having that will definitely protect you when surfing online! That filtering is very effective to keep you safe. Plus the VectorN and Xploit Resilience will also augment the user and protect him! Beats the setup of other suites and is good company and layer to any existing setup. Cheers and thanks for contest!

Features of ThorForesight Home that i found best-
1.Multi-layered, AI Powered Protection for unknown threats also in addition to known threats.
2.Unique Traffic-based Malware detection
