According to Gartner’s latest research report on Endpoint Protection Platforms (January 16th, 2012), the vendors highlighted continue to have problems stopping malware such as targeted attacks. One of the key technologies that Gartner sites as lacking from these vendors and that is important to preventing these attacks is called application control.
One obstacle not highlighted in the report is the fact that a number of the early application control products have required dedicated systems that can conflict with existing endpoint protection and management systems, making it difficult to acquire and install this important capability.
In our opinion, the key to making application control generally available is for the major players to make it part of their overall offering and for the vendors of application control to make it easy to integrate. In the meantime, at Savant Protection, we will work to make application control and whitelisting easy to add to your existing systems, without the need to change what you are doing operationally. We continue to work behind the scenes with leaders in the space to make the technology more accessible to all.
As a dedicated application control company we have built a new generation of application whitelisting and control solutions that integrate with your existing endpoint protection and PC lifecycle management products. We have had success in working with organizations from twenty computers to thousands in adding this critical security layer.
With Savant Protection’s flexible application control and trust system you benefit by the fact that the solution:
- Works with traditional Antivirus and HIPS products to stop attacks that bypass these technologies
- Integrates with PC Lifecycle Management products to protect and support provisioning, patching and trusted update processes
- Automatically enforces endpoint policies
