Cheyenne, Wyoming, October 7, 2019. BlackFog, Inc. today announced the release of BlackFog Privacy 4.0, its next generation data privacy and cybersecurity solution for Windows. Focusing specifically on on-device cybersecurity and data exfiltration, BlackFog is able to block threats in real-time and prevent the activation of malware over the network including ransomware, spyware and crypto-jacking. By geo-locating traffic BlackFog can detect when malicious activity is taking place using behavioral profiling and 12 different layers of protection.

BlackFog has gathered feedback from thousands of customers over the last year and has incorporated a number of new features. Version 4.0 includes a completely redesigned user interface designed to provide faster access to existing and new product features. The new process monitoring feature allows introspection of any process, enabling BlackFog to terminate applications exhibiting suspicious activity.  CPU activity has also been reduced to less than 1% which will improve battery life for mobile devices such as laptops and tablets running BlackFog.

To cope with the ever growing number of new threats, BlackFog has also added double execution prevention to protect against malicious extensions such as pdf.exe, png.exe, and hundreds of other combinations. In addition, shadow copy protection prevents deletion by rogue processes, a common technique employed by malware.

BlackFog 4.0 is available for download immediately from the company website. In addition to Windows, BlackFog is also available for MacOS, iOS and Android. An Enterprise edition is also available for remote management of all devices within an organization through its global distributor and reseller network. For enquiries please contact BlackFog directly.
