Prevents non-whitelisted programs from launching when computer is at risk. New machine-learning tool flags malware. Checks blocked files against 57 antivirus scanners. Free edition for consumers.
Could possibly whitelist malware running prior to installation. Flagged some legitimate programs as suspicious, some as malicious.
- Bottom Line
VoodooShield takes a whitelist approach to antivirus protection, but without getting in the user's way. A new machine-learning component brings it closer to the abilities of a standalone antivirus.
Suppose you have a PC that's guaranteed clean and malware-free. You could keep it pristine by simply preventing any new programs from launching. You wouldn't need traditional antivirus protection at all! But you also wouldn't be able to update your applications, or install new programs. That sort of extreme whitelisting is just too rigid. VoodooSoft's VoodooShield takes a softer approach. By default, it blocks new unknown programs only when your system is at risk. New for version 3.0, VoodooShield adds AI-based detection of malware, but you should still use it in conjunction with a more traditional antivirus.
