A master list of over 22 billion known good applications that each endpoint can check via local definitions or the cloud.
Local overrides can be added after prevention with a focus on accuracy and without concern for responding to an already active infection
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released standards that require application allowlisting for compliance
Application allowlist updates are fast and protection levels don't suffer without them; allowing for frequent offline use with peak security
The allowlist is lightweight and PC Matic has consistently won awards for AV performance against our competition
Adding local overrides to supplement the global allowlist requires significantly fewer IT resources than responding to constant detect and respond alerts
Our Global Allowlist is a master list of good applications that each endpoint can check via local definitions or the cloud.
Custom and low-frequency applications can be added locally by customers to augment the global allowlist.
Good signed applications are added via the publisher's signature eliminating the need for allowlisting hashes for past and future applications.
Ransomware can be deployed via valid scripting applications which necessitated the creation of a scripting allowlist, the only one of its kind.
Ransomware can be deployed through breached RDP ports. PC Matic authenticates the entering device to close this hole.
Ransomware can be launched via macros in Office. PC Matic includes a allowlist of valid applications that can be launched through Office.
Ransomware can be executed through compromised file extensions. PC Matic has a allowlist of valid file extensions.
Customers can allowlist a directory as a last resort, making it easier to write, test and deploy custom code in their environment.
"Application Allowlisting should be an integral component of a defense-in-depth solution."
"Application allowlisting is surely one of the reliable solutions available today..."
"Utilize application "allowlisting," which allows only specific programs to run on your computer. This will prevent malicious programs from running on your computer."
"Application allowlisting is one of the best security strategies as it allows only specified programs to run, while blocking all others, including malicious software."
