Business Driver: Airlock Digital Whitelisting

In spite of years of adversarial security challenges, Cybersecurity is still in a constant state of flux. Ransomware and a multitude of malicious attack vectors keep organisations constantly on their toes, trying to locate that magic security bullet that many vendor’s claim their product fulfills. The reality is that information security is at its most effective when a layered approach is applied that address risks with the most effective products or solutions. Application Whitelisting is one such approach that prevents malicious code executing without pre-approval. Put simply, white-listing prevents bad software from operating unless the organisation’s IT administrator’s give it the all-clear.

Overview – Airlock Whitelisting

Prevent Malicious Software from running on your IT systems Airlock provides another layer of security across your IT infrastructure by preventing unauthorised “code” (software or applications) from functioning unless they have been pre-approved by the IT Department. Pre-approval ensures that only sanctioned files can be deployed within IT systems and gives IT administrators greater control over their environment, further reducing the risk of malware, viral infection or ransomware hijacking.

  • Reduce business risk
  • Exercise greater control over the entire technology chain
  • Complement “black-listing” tools like anti-malware and anti-virus software
  • Proactive security initiatives provide greater overall protection
  • Improve security posture
