With the presence of 200,000+ new malware and viruses created daily, traditional blacklist antivirus apps alone became no longer effective and updated. VoodooShield locks your computer and blocks all new, non-whitelisted executable code (including viruses and malware), while your computer is running a web app (browser, email, etc.). Traditional antivirus is great, but your computer should be locked when it is at risk.
VoodooShield will protect your computer from getting viruses and malware but if your computer has a virus, VoodooShield will not remove it. If VoodooShield blocks something that you would like to run, then allow it after it is automatically scanned. Otherwise, if VoodooShield blocks something out of the blue, then just ignore it and assume it was a virus or malware.

The Concept of VoodooShield:
IF YOUR COMPUTER IS RUNNING A WEB APP, IT NEEDS TO BE LOCKED. PERIOD. NOT A FILTER. NOT A SANDBOX. NOT VIRTUALIZATION. AN ABSOLUTE LOCK.
How is Voodooshield different from all other apps?
COMPUTER LOCK + MACHINE LEARNING / AI + MULTI-ENGINE BLACKLIST SCAN
VoodooShield is the only patented tangible toggling computer lock in the industry. There are other deny-by-default / zero trust products, but only VoodooShield functions as an actual computer lock with dynamic levels of protection (dynamic security postures).
The Achilles’ heel of all security products is that they are only able to offer a single static level of protection, so at any given time their security posture is likely either too aggressive or too relaxed, resulting in false positives and breaches. VoodooShield solves this issue by dynamically adjusting its security posture on the fly, based on the end-user’s current activity and behavior. Because of our dynamic security postures feature, VoodooShield is able to offer a tighter and more robust lock than is possible with any other product.
Our patented snapshot technology automatically builds the tiny, customized whitelist for the end-user, resulting in the smallest possible whitelist and attack surface in the industry.
VoodooShield does not force the end-user to respond to dangerous affirmative user prompts, which eliminates the possibility the end-user inadvertently allows an unknown item. Instead, VoodooShield displays a mini prompt prior to asking the end-user to make a decision on whether to allow a new item or not.
Through our WhitelistCloud technology, VoodooShield is the only product in the industry that scans our proprietary tiny, customized whitelist specifically for safe / clean files and automatically creates firewall rules for unknown items. In other words, traditional antivirus scans for malware while WhitelistCloud scans for safe / clean files. As a result, Administrators are continually aware that only safe items are running on the endpoints. With traditional AV engines, Administrators are somewhat certain that malware is not executing on the endpoints, but with WhitelistCloud, they are essentially certain that only safe items are executing at any moment in time.
VoodooShield considers the entire attack chain in the parent / child process creation relationship. Not only does this make VoodooShield more secure, our mechanism is flexible so that blacklisting vulnerable items globally is not required. For example, VoodooShield is not required to blacklist PowerShell globally in order to protect PowerShell attacks. VoodooShield considers the entire attack chain so that benign scripts that need to execute are able to do so, while blocking malicious PowerShell attacks.
VoodooShield includes extremely robust script, LOLBins and fileless malware protection capabilities.
VoodooShield created the anti-exploit mechanism that many vendors utilize today, but chose not to patent it. VoodooShield is also the only product that protects the entire Windows system, as opposed to only protecting the Windows components that are currently being exploited by malware authors. With VoodooShield, there is no need to update our mechanism when malware authors discover a new Windows component to exploit, which tends to happen every 3-4 months.
VoodooShield utilizes 70+ of the best known antivirus engines, ML/Ai and reputation based file insight, and provides the end-user with these 3 file insight metrics so they can make an informed decision, while offering an end-user recommendation based on the provided file insight.
Unlike products that utilize legacy / deprecated Software Restriction Policy (SRP) that operates in user-mode, VoodooShield utilizes a modern kernel-mode monolithic blocking mechanism that does not require patches, hacks or tweaks to protect against new or undiscovered vulnerabilities and threats.
VoodooShield is highly customizable through its settings, allowing Administrators to fine tune the overall security posture for each end-user.
YOUR ANTIVIRUS IS A FILTER. VOODOOSHIELD IS A COMPUTER LOCK.
How it is working:
Voodooshield will toggle between on and off, depending on whether you are at risk or not
OFF Mode (Unlocked):
Your computer is unlocked, and VoodooShield is learning which programs to allow so it will not block them once VoodooShield locks your computer. You can also change to this mode if you need to install or allow additional software. Your computer is NOT protected in this mode.
ON Mode (Locked):
Your computer is locked and you are protected. When VoodooShield automatically toggles to ON Mode, it takes a snapshot of the currently running software, and automatically allows everything in this snapshot. VoodooShield also automatically allows currently installed software and specific critical Windows system files. Any software that was not allowed when VoodooShield was OFF is blocked.
It is suitable for both Home and Business users:
Since most viruses and malware attack through web browsers and email attachments, VoodooShield simply locks your computer when you are browsing the web or checking email. It also protects the user space when not at risk. When used properly, VoodooShield will effectively block all browser and email based viruses and malware. VoodooShield does not remove existing viruses.
VoodooShield’s three layers of protection include:
An application whitelisting lock, a machine learning / Ai decision engine and a multi-engine blacklist scan.
The application whitelisting lock automatically toggles to ON when the computer is at risk to lock your computer and keep you safe while browsing the web or checking email.
While the machine learning, AI and multi-engine blacklist scanners automatically scan new and unknown executable files to ensure that malware is not accidentally allowed by the end user.
Disable / Install Mode:
used when you are installing new software. It is similar to the training mode except new items are not added to the whitelist
used when you initially install VoodooShield, or when you are installing or running new software
AutoPilot / Antivirus mode:
VoodooShield will remain in SCAN mode. It is a great choice for users who want the power and performance of application whitelisting
Smart Mode (Default):
VoodooShield will toggle between ON and OFF
VoodooShield will remain ON
This is a built-in scanner that classify all files as safe, suspicious or unsafe. In addition, a graph indicator showing the maliciousness is displayed. It utilizes machine learning and artificial intelligence to analyze files for maliciousness.
How to allow (Whitelist) a Program:
VoodooShield will automatically allow all programs that are launched while VoodooShield is in OFF Mode.
If VoodooShield blocks software that you would like to run, simply click on the desktop shield gadget or balloon notification to scan and run the software. You can also left click on the desktop shield gadget to toggle to OFF Mode to allow additional software. You can also right click on VoodooShield for more options and settings.
Cloud based blacklist scanning with 50+ industry standard scan engines:
VoodooShield automatically uploads blocked files for blacklist analysis with 50+ of the industry leaders!
If VoodooShield blocks a file, it will automatically upload the file for analysis with 50+ of the top continuously updated blacklist antivirus providers.
You can also scan a file simply by dragging and dropping it to VoodooShield!
