CoreTrace to Host Free Webinar Examining Higher Education's Tremendous Interest in Application Whitelisting

CoreTrace CTO and Founder to Discuss Why Higher Education Security Professionals Are Turning to Application Whitelisting to Combat the "Perfect Storm" They Are Facing

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - April 15, 2010) -   CoreTrace, the leading provider of high-security, easy-change application whitelisting solutions, announced today that it will host a live webinar on Thursday, April 22, 2010, at 2 p.m. EDT entitled "Application Whitelisting & Higher Education: Why The Tremendous Interest?" The free webinar, led by Daniel Teal, founder and chief technology officer at CoreTrace, will take a fresh and interactive look at the "perfect storm" facing higher education security professionals, today's anti-malware challenges, and one promising new solution being investigated by hundreds of institutions, application whitelisting.

  What:   Security professionals in higher education are facing a "perfect storm": a wide-open culture, multiple user groups, private personal information, sensitive research data, uncontrolled student computers, and users requiring unfettered Internet access for research -- access that almost certainly takes them to malware-distributing websites. While security teams in other industries may be able to limp along with outdated approaches, higher educational ones must deal with the threats -- including those the easily bypass blacklist-based antivirus products like targeted threats, memory exploits, advanced persistent threats (APTs) and rootkits. Mr. Teal will discuss this perfect storm, the shortcomings of traditional solutions, and why application whitelisting is becoming a must-have, proactive defense. Mr. Teal will also discuss how modern whitelisting solutions easily allow users to install new applications and do not interfere with productivity / research.
