BlackFog, the leader in on-device data privacy, data security and ransomware prevention, today announced the release of BlackFog for Windows on ARM 64 processors such as Microsoft’s Surface Pro X and Windows virtual machines running on the M1 processor, its latest offering to provide data privacy and cybersecurity solutions for Windows.
Windows 10 and Windows 11 on ARM 64
This new release introduces compatibility with ARM processors in response to the increase in devices now adopting these computing architectures. With support for both Windows 10 and Windows 11 on ARM 64, BlackFog runs natively on every device, maximizing performance, battery life and ultimately the security of data by preventing data loss, data profiling and data collection.
“BlackFog is helping organizations globally to finally win the fight against ransomware and other cyberattacks so it is an important step for us to extend our anti data exfiltration technology to all devices and processing systems,” said BlackFog founder and CEO, Dr. Darren Williams. “This expansion to ARM processors is only the beginning of continued innovation and increased support we plan to offer to both the individual users and enterprises we assist.”
Anti Data Exfiltration (ADX) Technology
Using BlackFog’s unique approach to cybersecurity – anti data exfiltration (ADX) – the latest release is able to prevent all modern cyberattacks. Unlike traditional approaches that focus on perimeter defense or fingerprinting, BlackFog monitors the data leaving the device and uses behavioral analysis to detect anomalies and stop cyberattacks, including ransomware in real-time.
With this latest release, BlackFog now offers support for Surface Pro X, M1 based virtual machines, Windows 11, Windows 10 and Edge 2 browsers. Additional features also include a decreased memory footprint, improved Excel export, process deny listing, domain name collection and subnet allow listing.
