Faronics is excited to announce that Info Security Products Guide, world’s leading publication on security-related products and technologies has named Anti-Executable and Deep Freeze as finalists in the upcoming 2010 Global Product Excellence Awards. Anti Executable has been nominated in the category for Anti Malware Solution, while Deep Freeze has been named a finalist in the category of Data Leakage-Protection/Extrusion Prevention. These prestigious global awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of technologies. Faronics is a longtime advocate for a layered security approach. With the number and complexity of malware threats increasing, relying solely on an anti-virus solution is no longer enough. An application whitelisting solution such as Anti-Executable combined with a system restore product like Deep Freeze in addition to an existing anti-virus security perimeter is the best defense to effectively protect an IT environment. Anti-Executable ensures total endpoint security by preventing unwelcome applications from executing or installing, while Deep Freeze offers the strongest protection available and eliminates the need for IT professionals to perform rebuilds, re-image, or troubleshoot computers-reducing support incidents up to 63% as documented in a recent study.
