Unlike traditional security solutions, customer infections aren’t required to strengthen the whitelist architecture
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 whitelist updates are fast and protection levels don’t suffer without them; allowing for frequent offline use with peak security
The whitelist is lightweight and PC Matic has consistently won awards for AV performance against our competition
Adding local overrides to supplement the global whitelist requires significantly fewer IT resources than responding to constant detect and respond alerts
Our Global Whitelist 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 whitelist.
Good signed applications are added via the publisher’s signature eliminating the need for whitelisting hashes for past and future applications.
Ransomware can be deployed via valid scripting applications which necessitated the creation of a scripting whitelist, the only one of its kind.
Ransomware can be deployed through breached RDP ports. PC Matic Pro authenticates the entering device to close this hole.
PC Matic Pro employs a proprietary device uniqueness algorithm to authenticate a device rather than a mobile phone as the second factor in MFA.
Ransomware can be launched via macros in Office. PC Matic Pro includes a whitelist of valid applications that can be launched through Office.
Ransomware can be executed through compromised file extensions. PC Matic Pro has a whitelist of valid file extensions.
Customers can whitelist 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 "whitelisting," 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."
