CoreTrace Releases "Top Seven Things You Need to Know About Application Whitelisting" Paper and Webinar

Leading Security Company Aims to Dispel Myths and Outdated Perceptions Surrounding Application Whitelisting Solutions and Demonstrate How Enterprises and Government Agencies Can Better Secure Systems

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - November 10, 2010) - CoreTrace®, the leading provider of secure and flexible application whitelisting solutions, today announced the availability of a new brief titled, "Top Seven Things You Need to Know About Application Whitelisting." The paper, authored by security industry veteran, Toney Jennings, President and CEO of CoreTrace, aims to make sure every security and operations professional can make decisions about application whitelisting based on the most updated information and not on outdated perceptions. The brief provides information on how flexible application whitelisting has become, how simple the self-service mechanisms are, and how much valuable intelligence it can bring about all applications in the network. In addition to the brief, a live webinar on this same topic will be held on Thursday, November 18, 2010.

What:
CoreTrace President and CEO, Toney Jennings, has authored a new brief, available to the public at no cost, on the benefits and capabilities of today's application whitelisting technology. A sampling of what the brief covers includes:

  • Application whitelisting is not the same as "lockdown"; leading solutions are built to address user-driven dynamic environments like desktops and laptops.
  • Leading solutions actually include cloud-based blacklists.
  • Leading solutions go beyond security to provide intelligence about all applications in a network -- including usage and prevalence.
  • Application whitelisting is no longer just for early adopters; the technology is securing thousands of systems across all major vertical markets and organizational sizes.

When:
Thursday, November 18, 2010
2 p.m. EST / 11 a.m. PST
