Hitman Pro 3 is a computer program to detect and remove Rootkits, Trojans, Viruses, Worms, Spyware, Adware and other Malware using extensive Behavioural Analysis and Cloud Computing. The program is developed by SurfRight. First it detects viruses and other files that have a suspicious behaviour (behaviour analysis) and sends them then to the scan cloud via the Internet. The malicious files are detected in the scan cloud where these are removed by Hitman Pro 3. The new version of Hitman Pro, version 3, uses Dr Web, Emsisoft Anti-Malware, G Data AntiVirus and Prevx to detect malicious software (see also multiscanning). As the various virus scanners are not installed on the local computer, but in the scan cloud on Internet, there is a very low system load. This technology is called “cloud computing” and is possible using behavioural analysis that can differentiate legitimate from malicious software.

Hitman Pro 3 is a completely different design than earlier versions of Hitman Pro that was developed by Mark Loman in the Netherlands. The previous version of Hitman Pro (version 1 and 2) automatically downloads, installs and runs third party anti-spyware and anti-adware programs that are freely available on the Internet:
