APPLICATION WHITELISTING

Superior Protection Against Modern Malware

What is SuperShield?

SuperShield Whitelisting is a real-time security technology designed with a globally automated whitelist to ensure the security of devices and the data stored within them. Thanks to the global application whitelist, users don't have to manually create their own list of trusted applications. Instead, they utilize the global list PC Matic has been maintaining for over a decade.

If there is an application that PC Matic has not analyzed and proven to be secure, it is automatically sent to our malware research team for testing and categorization. While this happens, the admin is able to immediately allow this application with a few simple clicks if they know it is good.

This unique approach allows us to provide true cyber-crime prevention in all PC Matic cybersecurity products. Contact us for more info.

Whitelist vs Blacklist

Traditional security software uses a Blacklist Antivirus approach, which is a list of all known malicious files, and prevents them from running.

Unfortunately, this list changes day-by-day, perhaps even minute-by-minute. Thus, making it impossible to keep it up to date. With the blacklist antivirus approach, there will always be a cyber attack victim. In order for a bad file to be identified, it had to already infect someone, somewhere.

The best cyber threat protection is through prevention, using a Whitelist approach. Real-Time Whitelisting completely blocks ransomware, malware and viruses from unauthorized access to your device or network.

Instead of using an archaic blacklist approach, PC Matic uses a proprietary application whitelisting technology for real-time protection against ransomware, malware, advanced persistent threats (APTs), polymorphic viruses, fileless infections, and zero-day attacks.

With Application Whitelisting security software, there is no malware or ransomware victim. Only tested, safe programs and files can run, thereby protecting your computer, laptop, mobile device or business network from unauthorized access. With whitelisting, a user has complete peace of mind when it comes to data protection and internet security.

Why is Whitelisting Important?

Cyber threats and hackers have taken the world by storm, and the epidemic isn’t slowing down anytime soon. Cyber criminals are advancing their attack methods daily and create new versions of malware every minute. Keeping track of every new version of malware is impossible. Yet, that is what a majority of security solutions attempt to do through the use of a blacklist. This is no longer a valid option when it comes to keeping devices secure.

The United States government and cyber security experts have expressed how the use of application whitelisting technology can effectively prevent malware attacks, like ransomware, and strengthen security defenses.

What is Application Whitelisting in software?

Application Whitelisting, also known as Application Control or Application Allow, is a superior computer and network security approach designed to protect against malicious scripts from executing on endpoints, mobile devices, PCs, laptops, Macs, Chromebooks, and network servers.

Preventing Cyber Security Incidents. When implemented properly, whitelist application control ensures that only safe, authorized applications, executables, software libraries, scripts, downloads and installers can be executed. This type of cybersecurity provides the most effective control and defense against cybercriminals and cyber-attacks including ransomware, malware, fileless intrusions, trojans, spyware, zero-day attacks, polymorphous and other viruses.

What is a Whitelist? A whitelist or application allow-list is a digital list of approved and trusted programs allowed to access a device or operating system. Everything not explicitly on the whitelist is denied by default and cannot run. In cybersecurity, a whitelist of trusted programs is the opposite of a blacklist which is a list of untrusted, malicious programs. Antivirus and anti-malware software programs are basically blacklists. If a new virus or unknown dangerous program isn't detected and blocked by the existing blacklist, a system can be infected, and a cyber-attack launched.
