As we’ve shared in our populating “Ransomware Attacks of 2016” blog, we’ve learned this year has caused a major concern among businesses and public sector organizations regarding malware attacks.
Ransomware has progressed to different forms and trends and has caused financial stress for numerous businesses. Our solution to ridding systems sensitivities to these threats is by implementation of our whitelist technology. By bolstering our security experts’ process of reviewing additional factors of potential malware, we’ve added to the value we provide our customers and businesses by shifting the burden of security to PC Matic Home and PC Matic Pro.
There are numerous benefits to implementing whitelist technology. The most important benefit of whitelisting is the extra protection and security given to our customers. Ransomware is certainly a game-changer; although continuous decryptors are created in lieu of substandard protection, cyber criminals are creating new ways to bypass decryptors with advanced ransomware threats. PC Matic and PC Matic Pro’s security approach, now armed with our whitelist technology, blocks out threats like ransomware and CryptoLocker and prevents cyber thieves from holding your files for ransom.
Whitelisting: The only approach that stops Ransomware in its tracks.
An advantage of including whitelisting technology into your system’s protection is to put your mind at ease. Rather than waiting for the ransomware attack to happen and responding to the threat, protect your business and personal systems in real-time with the whitelisting approach.
Instead of using the archaic blacklist approach like our competitors, PC Matic and PC Matic Pro use a proprietary whitelisting technology for real-time protection against ransomware, advanced persistent threats (APTs), polymorphic viruses and zero-day attacks.
In a recent survey by IDG, 95% of IT security leaders would consider implementing whitelist security solutions. With that, 91% of IT pros would still consider whitelisting even if it means an occasional false positive application. IT security leaders know in a world of everyday cyber threats, it’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to protecting sensitive information and systems.
USA today mentioned, “Utilize application ‘whitelisting’, which allows only specific programs to run on your computer. This will prevent malicious programs from running on your computer.”
PC Matic and PC Matic Pro products provide superior security protection over all security products, free or otherwise, on the market. In addition, PC Matic and PC Matic Pro keep your computers running at peak performance even after years of use.
