CoreTrace Named Among Top Ten Security Companies to Watch by Network World

Company Is Only Application Whitelisting Provider Honored; Ability to Easily Handle New Applications and Upgrades Cited

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - November 18, 2008) - CoreTrace, the creator of high-security / easy-change application whitelisting, announced today that it has been named among Network World magazine's "Top Ten IT Security Companies to Watch." Published in the November 17th, 2008 issue, the feature highlighted CoreTrace among the ten up and coming security companies worth watching in 2009. CoreTrace was the only application whitelisting vendor named in the feature. Application whitelisting is gaining quick traction in the industry as the next viable solution in antivirus, as the technology inherently prevents anything from running on the endpoint that isn't on an approved whitelist. What sets BOUNCER apart from the competition is the patent-pending ability to handle change with minimal effort, keeping computers secure without straining IT teams. Other vendors highlighted in the article include Behavioral Recognition Systems, Envysion, Guardian Analytics, Metaforic, NexTier Networks, NovaShield, Packet Analytics, Purewire, and Rohati Systems.

Based on a unique combination of security and flexibility, the award-winning BOUNCER technology from CoreTrace has received numerous accolades from both leading IT publications and industry analyst organizations, including a "grade A" from InfoWorld magazine and also being named to the list of "Best Security Products at DEMO" by PC Magazine. BOUNCER's impressive record against rogue applications was shown in the recent Defcon "Race to Zero" competition, where the solution stopped 100 percent of all malware created. Unlike other application whitelisting solutions on the market today that are simply lockdown technologies, BOUNCER's unique "Trusted Change" capability enables IT professionals to predefine multiple sources from which users can safely install applications and have them automatically added to the whitelist -- without any further IT involvement required.

"We are thrilled to be named among Network World magazine's Top Ten Security Companies to Watch in 2009 and mentioned alongside an impressive list of leading-edge security companies," said Toney Jennings, president and chief executive officer for CoreTrace. "The validation further acknowledges our innovative BOUNCER technology as a game-changing antivirus alternative to be reckoned with. It is our belief that 2009 will be the year that organizations realize that traditional antivirus solutions are no longer sufficient. The constant threat of malware and zero-day attacks, coupled with the time consuming nature of emergency security patching, will prod IT to seek out other solutions, and BOUNCER is just that."
