BlackFog, Inc. announces the release of its on-device Cybersecurity and Data Privacy solution for Android devices. BlackFog Privacy protects users from online threats by putting a stop to unauthorized data collection, profiling, cryptomining, phishing, and fake news over the Internet and Dark Web.
BlackFog announces distribution agreement with DCC, a global IT distributor headquartered in Denmark, to resell BlackFog’s cyber security solution. With over 3000 customers in more than 70 countries they specialize in surplus computer hardware, shipping around 100,000 units annually.
Unlike antivirus software which uses signature based techniques, BlackFog Enterprise uses next generation multivariant behavioral analysis to prevent attacks and reduce the total surface area exposed to cyber criminals. This includes blocks based on geography, DNS and network anomalies.
Ad blocking, tracking and profile protection (available for Safari 10 or later) increases the performance of your browser significantly and improves page load times by more than 100% in most cases. It also ensures that you will not be followed as you browse the web and provides the ability to recover from highly prevalent browser hijacks.
Using non-signature based techniques, BlackFog is able to stop threats before they occur, by intercepting, detecting and responding to behavioral characteristics of spyware, ransomware and other data collection activities on your device. Specifically focused on outbound traffic, BlackFog is able to dynamically detect problems before they happen by preventing activation through command and control servers (CC).
