While most antiviruses work with huge databases in order to keep themselves updated and function properly, Voodoo Software has come up with a new kind of solution. VoodooShield is a whitelisting app for your devices; when you're browsing the net, just put everything on quarantine (basically, locking down your computer) and only whitelist handful of apps you know you need to use. Once you're done browsing, you can lift the lockdown and use your programs freely. So, if you want to add extra layers of security to your setup, VoodooShield might just be unique enough to pique your interest!
VoodooShield is a pretty unique Windows OS-oriented antivirus since it offers a practical system of computer lockdown features while the user is browsing around the net or checking their email. This effectively keeps any threats from doing any harm, which is very useful as this antivirus does not eliminate already-existing threats.
A neat aspect of VoodooShield is its engine learning AI, which works by learning what apps you do use while it is deactivated, making your use of the PC and its own performance to be more accurate and less inconvenient. This way, you don’t have to keep whitelisting every app you use.
Another great feature is the automatic toggle on, so you will never forget and be exposed or vulnerable while browsing or checking your emails. This comes in handy especially at the workplace where so much is done through emails.
There is also the possibility of manually whitelisting the applications even after VoodooShield has blocked them so you can resume your normal activities without much inconvenience. This feature enables you to further teach the learning AI engine what your needs are as a user and what your habits are, thus becoming less and less necessary as time goes by.
If you want to give VoodooShield a test run or simply can’t afford to buy the antivirus right now, there is a completely free version set up to work pretty well for the simple necessities of the average user. The downside is that it can’t be tinkered with as much, and you’ll have to put up with certain features you either don’t need or don’t like.
The premium packages all include the same features: computer lock, machine learning AI, multi-engine blacklist, advanced snapshot, multiple security postures, unlimited rules, adjustable user settings, no nag screens, enterprise features, and customer support. The cost of these premium versions varies depending on the number of computers you wish to have it operating on - 1-3 computers costs $29,99 per year each; if you have 4-9 computers you will pay $24,9 each, and if you have 10+ computers the cost drops to $19,99 each.
They also have 10% discounts for two-year subscriptions and 20% discounts for three-year subscriptions. You can pay with PayPal or using your credit card through PayPal, so it should be a quick and easy online process.
The simplistic approach of VoodooShield and its friendly features make it a good option to have both for your business and home devices. At first, it might be a bit tricky as there is a learning curve between machine and user, but it looks promising after everything is set and done. One important thing to keep in mind though is that it will not get rid of any existing threats; if you use it well, there shouldn’t be a need for that though.
