The Company We Keep

Prominent industry leaders choose PC Matic as their endpoint protection solution because we secure their digital domain. We stop ransomware. We prevent cyber attacks.

Adaptable Application Allowlisting

PC Matic provides a patented default-deny security layer at the device that blocks
all unknown executions without introducing headaches for IT.

Global Allowlist

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

Proactive Protection

Stop Responding to Threats.
Prevent Them.

Multi-Layer Threat Prevention

PC Matic employs several allowlist layers on top of the same traditional security blacklist
that our competition uses as the first line of defense against malicious code and unauthorized applications.

Global Allowlist

Our Global Allowlist is a master list of good applications that each endpoint can check via local definitions or the cloud.

Local Allowlist

Custom and low-frequency applications can be added locally by customers to augment the global allowlist.

Signature Allowlist

Good signed applications are added via the publisher's signature eliminating the need for allowlisting hashes for past and future applications.

Malicious Script Allowlist

Ransomware can be deployed via valid scripting applications which necessitated the creation of a scripting allowlist, the only one of its kind.

RDP Authentication Allowlist

Ransomware can be deployed through breached RDP ports. PC Matic authenticates the entering device to close this hole.

Microsoft Office Allowlist

Ransomware can be launched via macros in Office. PC Matic includes a allowlist of valid applications that can be launched through Office.

File Extension Allowlist

Ransomware can be executed through compromised file extensions. PC Matic has a allowlist of valid file extensions.

Local Directory Allowlist

Customers can allowlist a directory as a last resort, making it easier to write, test and deploy custom code in their environment.

Conflict-Free Whitelisting

PC Matic is designed at its core to run alongside other security layers without conflicts. Adding application allowlisting into any existing security stack without compromising other layers or overall security has never been simpler. Experts recommend deploying a security stack with a layered approach to protect resources and data while using application allowlisting as the fail-safe layer. When other layers fail, PC Matic blocks malware from running on the workstation because it is not a known good application.
PC Matic represents a long overdue shift in the cybersecurity industry to absolute prevention. Today's threats to critical infrastructure, industry and all levels of government demand nothing less.

Application Allowlisting is a
Cybersecurity Best Practice

"Application Allowlisting should be an integral component of a defense-in-depth solution."

"Application allowlisting is surely one of the reliable solutions available today..."

Colin McHugo, Director at Quantum Forensic Investigations

"Utilize application "allowlisting," which allows only specific programs to run on your computer. This will prevent malicious programs from running on your computer."

USA Today

"Application allowlisting is one of the best security strategies as it allows only specified programs to run, while blocking all others, including malicious software."
