BOUNCER by CoreTrace Named Winner of Info Security Products Guide 2009 Global Excellence Award for Both Antivirus and Anti-Malware Categories

Customer Voting Demonstrates Worldwide Shift Towards Application Whitelisting as the Future of Anti-Malware and Antivirus

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - April 21, 2009) - CoreTrace, the pioneer of client-based application whitelisting technology, announced today that Info Security Products Guide, a leading publication on security-related products and technologies, has named its BOUNCER technology an award winner for the 2009 Global Product Excellence Customer Trust Awards in both the antivirus and anti-malware solutions categories. This customer-endorsed honor is a testament to the cutting-edge BOUNCER application whitelisting technology, providing the industry with highest security possible.

"This award comes at a time when malware and security breaches are front-page news on a daily basis," said Toney Jennings, president and CEO for CoreTrace. "It's clear the industry needs to make some adjustments in the security technology that's being used to combat threats. We believe these Info Security Products Guide awards re-affirm customers' beliefs that traditional antivirus and anti-malware solutions are no longer sufficient forms of security and that application whitelisting is the answer."

BOUNCER is the only application whitelisting solution that simultaneously stops even the most sophisticated malware attacks (e.g., rootkits, memory exploits), while allowing users to safely install new applications and have them automatically added to the whitelist without requiring IT involvement. BOUNCER's impressive record against rogue applications was shown at the Defcon16 "Race to Zero" competition last year where BOUNCER stopped 100 percent of all malware. Leading blacklist-based antivirus solutions stopped 60 percent. With the additional protection that BOUNCER provides, for example memory protection, this one solution replaces an entire suite of products from traditional antivirus companies.

"In an interconnected world, threats have no boundaries and security has to remain a prime requirement," says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief of Info Security Products Guide. "We are pleased to honor CoreTrace as a winner in two different categories."
