Harry Sverdlove the Chief Technology Officer at Bit9 joins Craig to discuss application whitelisting. Bit 9’s award-winning endpoint protection solutions provide total visibility and control over all software on endpoints, eliminating the risk caused by malicious, illegal and unauthorized software. For more than 20 years the security industry has been chasing a seemingly infinite list of malicious software and creating a blacklist to prevent it from running. Given the exponential growth in malware, zero-day threats and the targeted nature of today’s attacks, this reactive approach is now ineffective, clearly evident by the high number of data breaches still taking place. The premise of application whitelisting is very simple: what you want running on your system is much smaller of a set than what you don’t want running on your system. here is no “silver bullet” in security, therefore a layered, defense-in-depth approach is critical when protecting computer systems.
