Faronics is pleased to announce the release of Anti-Executable 3.4. Anti-Executable scans a workstation’s hard drive and creates a whitelist of all programs that are authorized for use, thereby preventing unwelcomed applications from executing or installing. The latest version of Faronics’ application whitelisting software features blacklist capability and full compatibility with Deep Freeze Maintenance Mode.
With the number and complexity of malware threats steadily increasing, relying solely on definition-based anti-virus solutions to ensure IT security is no longer enough. A layered security approach is absolutely necessary to effectively protect an IT environment. Application whitelisting builds an integral additional layer of security between anti-virus and the ultimate safety net of Deep Freeze.
Anti-Executable protects users from Internet dangers such as spyware, malware, and adware as well as prevent distractions, such as chat programs and games. Other new features in version 3.4 include the ability to export whitelists in easy-to-manipulate CSV format and improved event log viewing.
