Airlock enables you to easily create and manage secure whitelists in dynamically changing computing environments.
Unlike signature based file blocking (black listing) such as antivirus, Airlock only allows files it has been instructed to trust, to run. If the file is not in the whitelist it cannot run, regardless if a file is known good, bad or indifferent.
This proactively prevents malicious code like ransomware from running on your system, before any damage occurs.
Modern attacks involve the modification of files, or the creation of unique malware to avoid detection by traditional security software. 99% of malware hashes are seen for only 58 seconds or less. In fact, most malware was seen only once. This reflects how quickly hackers are modifying their code to avoid detection.
As each customer makes decisions regarding what files they trust in-house, each deployment is unique. This prevents cyber-criminals from testing their attacks before attacking their targets.
