CoreTrace Announces First Enterprise-Ready Application Whitelisting Solution for Windows 7

Automatic Whitelist Generation and Updating; Centralized Management and Reporting; Cross-Platform Coverage Separate BOUNCER From Windows 7 AppLocker Feature

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - January 21, 2010) - CoreTrace, the pioneer of client-based application whitelisting technology, today announced the latest release of its award-winning and patented BOUNCER solution including coverage for Windows 7 clients. As the industry's first enterprise-ready application whitelisting solution for Windows 7 clients, BOUNCER provides clear value above and beyond Windows 7's embedded application whitelisting feature, AppLocker.

"Microsoft has tacitly declared that the default 'status-quo' security model for Windows simply isn't enough. With Windows 7, Microsoft has introduced new technology, dubbed AppLocker, that further legitimizes application whitelisting as the anti-malware approach of the future," said Jeremy Moskowitz, Microsoft Group Policy MVP, and founder of and Moskowitz, Inc. "AppLocker is only available on Windows 7 Enterprise and Ultimate editions, and not the popular Professional edition. While a good first effort from Microsoft, AppLocker could mean some time-intensive and ongoing manual tuning of whitelists for some enterprise customers."

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 where BOUNCER stopped 100 percent of all malware while leading blacklist-based antivirus solutions merely stopped 60 percent.

"We are excited about Microsoft's endorsement of application whitelisting technology, but we know BOUNCER provides clear benefits above AppLocker," said Toney Jennings, president and chief executive officer for CoreTrace. "BOUNCER provides protection on all the major versions of Windows and Solaris in one solution. Unlike AppLocker, BOUNCER quickly creates a customized whitelist for each computer, automatically updates the whitelist for new applications or upgrades, and provides centralized administration and reporting."

In order to help IT professionals determine whether AppLocker is sufficient for their purposes, or if they need a more enterprise-ready solution like BOUNCER, Moskowitz, Inc. and CoreTrace have produced an educational whitepaper titled "Application Whitelisting: Microsoft AppLocker and Beyond." The paper can be read at:

BOUNCER for Windows 7 is available immediately.
