Application Whitelisting

Increase the security of your network... and it’s fast to set-up.

When executed correctly, Application Whitelisting can completely prevent ransomware and other, more insidious forms of malware from costing you thousands of dollars in lost productivity and consulting time to fix it.

That’s because rather than working like anti-virus, which detects known malware by its code “signature”, Application Whitelisting treats every unknown piece of code that wants to run as a potentially bad file and prevents it until it’s approved.

It’s fast to set-up and it vastly increases the security of your operating environment.

If you’re looking for Application Whitelisting, here’s why you should consider Computer One.

Application Whitelisting Features

It’s the ACSC’s No. 1 Strategy

Application Whitelisting is recommended by the Australian government as the number one way to mitigate against cyber-attacks.

It’s fast to implement

It used to take months and be a painstaking technical process. Now, it takes just a couple of weeks and requires little ongoing maintenance.

It works completely

Clients tell us that their malware instances have reduced to zero since implementation. That’s how good it is.

It’s very cost-effective

Considering how effective it is at stopping most types of malware from running, the price point makes it a very attractive solution.

Computer One recommends McAfee Application Control for Application Whitelisting

McAfee Application Control

We use McAfee Application Control for Application Whitelisting.  It’s relatively lightweight, it comes with a surprising amount of “smarts” out-of-the-box and it’s very effective at its job. 

It works on desktops, servers and other devices.  It’s connected to a worldwide threat intelligence facility that helps determine good, bad or unknown executable files as they are encountered on your network.  This reduces the need for human input to “sandbox” and determine the nature of an executable.

It works with legacy Windows systems (NT, 2000 and XP) right up to Windows 10.  It blocks executable files, libraries, drivers, Java apps, ActiveX controls, scripts, and specialty code.

Ultimately though, it just works.  That’s why we use and recommend it.
