I have used hitmanpro and hitmanpro.alert for about a week now on subscription (in combination with Avast! Free.) I recently found a hitmanpro product named hitmanpro.utm. I read what it was and it sounded like something amazing i can connect to every one of my devices but i couldn't find any way to use or activate it, No download links, no activation code, nothing. I really want to know 2 things,

  1. is it compatible with my router (Motorola NVG589)
  2. How to use it

From what I read about the product, it appears that you will have to buy a router with HitmanPro.UTM built into it to use the product. :)

Otherwise just connect the router like you would any other, and HitmanPro.UTM will do the job automatically.

Sorry for asking so much questions (I'm a geek in computers but a noob in routers) what did you mean connect the router

 

Otherwise just connect the router like you would any other, and HitmanPro.UTM will do the job automatically.

Is it a way i can connect Hitmanpro.utm without buying a new router?

See here for an explanation on how a router works.

Unfortunately, no. It's not some sort of firmware that you can flash on your router - it is part of the router itself. So to use HitmanPro.UTM you will have to buy the router mentioned in the article.

Well then, i might not get the security till about a year or so, don't want to make such a big purchase... 

Maybe i can give a request to the makers of Hitmanpro to make a new feature where we don't have to buy a new router

Or you can instead use security on the computers - solid antivirus, antimalware and firewall, use safe surfing with some additional utilities and browser extensions. :)

I already do, In fact I have Hitmanpro, (version 3.7.9 - build 242, set to scan daily with default scan, all settings are turned on.)

Hitmanpro.alert, (Version 3.0.45 build 193, all settings turned on.) And Avast! Free (All shields turned on.)

I have the Avast browser security add-on on my browser, (Chrome) I also have The security hitmanpro.alert gave on my browser, safe browsing, keystroke encryption, exploit mitigation. And i also have Chrome's natural settings to protect me from phishing and malware sites. So yeah i have a lot of protection on my computer, also do you think with all this my computer is safe against malware?

The reason i wanted to have hitmanpro.utm is because it will protect devices that hitmanpro can't go on.

For antimalware protection I prefer Malwarebytes or Emsisoft, as they prevent malware from infecting your computer in the first place instead of removing them after infection like HitmanPro does.

Most home users that I know don't need a router with specialized antimalware technology, since solid endpoint security is often enough.

if your wondering what definitions and program version my Avast! Free is, the program version is 10.3.2223 and the virus definitions are 150718-4 and That is what hitmanpro.alert is for, stopping the virus before it starts to do damage

I believe you are talking about CryptoGuard module, which applies only to crypto ransomware. :)

Anyway, how much security is required depends on the end user - what works for one person may not work for another. But honestly a router with antimalware technology is kinda overkill.

your right about the router but wrong about alert...

only 3 options of hitmanpro.alert protect browsers (exploit mitigation, keystroke encryption, and safe browsing.) and 1 option for applications, (exploit mitigation.) the rest is for the entire computer...

Okay let me explain...

6 options protect the computer from viruses that do not include applications, (Vaccination, CryptoGuard, Webcam notifier, Process Protection, Network Lockdown, BADUSB.) 3 options that protect browsers, (exploit mitigation, safe browsing, keystroke protection.) And 1 option that protects applications (exploit mitigation.)

If you want me to tell you what those options mean, then ask...

Webcam Notifier is to inform you when an application tries to use your webcam without asking, so I wouldn't count it as protection from malware. Same for BadUSB. :)

Network Lockdown is to prevent malware from sending info back to their C&C, so this applies only when your computer is already infected.

If you have another explanation on how these functionalities work, then by all means please do. :)
