    So this is what they've been doing for the past two years. Hope it's compatible with SAP so I can give it a look-see.

    Interesting, Sophos seems to have finally full integrated Hitman Pro Alert tech in its portfolio.
    I will give it a try, HMPA technology is great.

    Thanks for sharing. It's good they've integrated HMP.A into their home AV.
    I just hope the memory usage isn't too high.

    Wow! A lot had been added, hope this doesn't turn out to be a memory hog

    Won't it be weird if they use competitors' engines because of HMP's capability? :D

    But maybe, they will remove the other engines, and just use HMP's in-house engine. :)

    I was waiting for this. It looks very interesting! Finally they added their anti ransomware components into the home product. The only thing is that it won't be free anymore, although you can get one year free, but I assume it will be like panda, a free and a premium variant. If it is that good as they advertise it, it might be a new interesting player in the current av market. I'll probably test it later today to see if it's real what they say.

    Seriously? They still haven't added it? I'll still give it a download just to take a look at it but that rules out me actually using it beyond the initial install.
    Hopefully it shows up in a video review or in the Malware Hub. I'd like to see how effective it is now that all HMP's tech is integrated.

    Exactly, this thing baffles me, that in 2017 they are releasing a product without quarantine feature (even after users demanding for quarantine feature for a long time).

    It's a good thing that they are maintaining stringent quality standards(like other good AV companies do), but it's always good to have a failsafe, for just in case.

    Of course it fluctuates much, but overall it didn't feel heavy (screenshots from MH testing time).

    Many processes, but considerably light usages. Check out the HMPA processes too.

    They aren't using the BD and Kasp engines (from HMP) if that was your concern.
    HMPAlert is integrated and works as a separate process, than the many Sophos processes. Have a look at the above pictures :)
