Newest Version of CoreTrace's Award-Winning Application Whitelisting Solution Now Available

BOUNCER 6.0 Combines the Most Secure, Scalable and Easy-to-Use Whitelisting Solution With Application Intelligence From CoreTrace's Cloud-Based Whitelist and Blacklist Service

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - October 13, 2010) -  CoreTrace®, the leading provider of application whitelisting-based solutions, today announced the general availability of BOUNCER™ 6.0, the company's award-winning endpoint protection product. BOUNCER 6.0 offers unparalleled malware protection, simplified management and valuable intelligence about all applications in an organization's network, including prevalence, usage and whether each is "known good" or "known bad". Using the all-new CoreTrace Software Intelligence (CSI) cloud-based service of known good and bad applications, BOUNCER 6.0 enables enterprises to identify and block malware and other unauthorized applications while enabling a high level of flexible application management and control.

"We were unhappy with the poor detection rates and severe performance impacts of blacklisting-based antivirus on our servers and PCs. We knew application whitelisting would stop many more threats and not impact performance, but we were concerned about the time required to manage the addition of new valid applications," said Trevor Smith, CEO of "We turned to CoreTrace and BOUNCER 6.0 quickly deployed and secured our systems, easily handled new applications and also provided valuable security and operational intelligence about all of our installed applications."

Recent malware outbreaks such as Stuxnet and the discontinuation of support for legacy software such as Windows 2000 are fueling strong interest in application whitelisting technologies. In a July 29, 2010 Gartner research note, titled "Enterprises Must Do More to Fight Cyberattacks Like Mariposa," Gartner vice president and research fellow John Pescatore highlights the increasing amount and severity of malware attacks should serve as a wake-up-call for organizations to increase efforts to combat cybercrime. Pescatore recommends, "[Enterprises] deploy advanced threat detection technology and network forensics capabilities, and prioritize adding application control and 'whitelisting' capabilities to endpoint protection platforms as soon as possible."

"BOUNCER 6.0 picks up where traditional antivirus has long-since fallen short," said Toney Jennings, president and CEO of CoreTrace. "BOUNCER 6.0 provides a triple-play by delivering totally secure endpoints, self-service capabilities that enable end users to add needed applications and in-depth intelligence about all applications in the enterprise."

Highlighted features of BOUNCER 6.0 by CoreTrace include:

  • Highly scalable virtualized architecture, designed for large distributed environments;
  • A hardened, self-defending endpoint agent that cannot be bypassed;
  • Application intelligence -- information about installed and requested applications, including prevalence, usage, and application assurance (e.g., "known good" or "known bad");
  • Intuitive, transparent administration by way of roles-based administration and expanded Trusted Change options for user privileges like the highly requested AllowQ™ mode for self-service installation of needed applications;
  • Advanced security which includes memory protection, script controls and also malware removal;
  • Improved integration capabilities with the addition of a client API to facilitate easier integrations into third party management systems.

Pricing for BOUNCER 6.0 starts at $35 per desktop and is also available for servers.
