The #ApplicationWhitelistingMovement begins.

Join the #ApplicationWhitelistingMatters Movement

Thank you for being a loyal PC Matic customer.  Your continued support has put PC Matic in the unique position to solve ransomware through application whitelisting.  We are humbled and inspired in your belief in us and our technologies.

In April, a public-private task force including Microsoft, Amazon, the National Governors Association, the FBI, Secret Service and Britain and Canada’s elite crime agencies delivered to the White House an 81-page urgent action plan for an aggressive and comprehensive whole-of-government assault on ransomware.  The headline was “No Silver Bullet for Ransomware”.  It is amazing that so many cyber experts are unaware of application whitelisting.

In June, Ann Neuberger, from the White House’s National Security Council, wrote an open letter to every business urging them take ransomware seriously.  We applaud Neuberger’s efforts to raise ransowmare’s awareness, however Ann omitted application whitelisting from her list of recommendations. 

The Colonial Pipeline shutdown raised ransomware’s profile and the public demanded better solutions.  Thank you to the many PC Matic customers that thrashed the folks at Colonial Pipeline for deploying old archaic cyber solutions instead of PC Matic’s application whitelisting.

The #ApplicationWhitelistingMatters Movement

Your actions with the Colonial Pipeline inspired us to create a movement.  #ApplicationWhitelistingMatters #AWLM #PCMATIC.  PC Matic is just one company. However, there are millions of you. You each have a voice to educate the market of the silver bullet that defeats ransomware, application whitelisting.

Being the early adopters and believers in application whitelisting, you are the living proof that PC Matic’s customers are uninfected and that application whitelisting works.  The goal of #ApplicationWhitelistingMatters is to gain in numbers and become a much needed, credible, alternate voice in cybersecurity.  Application whitelisting is a common sense solution to ransomware.  As some point, common sense was lost in the cyber security discussion.  #AWLM is an effort to restore common sense and sanity into the nation’s cyber defenses.

#ApplicationWhitelistingMatters’s toolset is social media.  We will be analyzing the news and posting on social media, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram with the #AWLM.  Join the conversation.  The more that join, the bigger the movement, the larger the awareness of application whitelisting, and finally the lower the infections.  This is how we win.

America is the greatest country on earth with the most important and influential universities in the world, and hence some of the smartest people on the planet. American companies drove the innovations that have transformed humanity creating vast wealth for our country. On top of that, America has the most dominant military of all time. Somehow, I got to believe that we got this.
