The Power of Trust: How Application Control Stops Ransomware and Other Malware
Homeland Security’s US-CERT recommends “App Control” as the #1 Malware Mitigation Strategy. What is this technology, and how does it block what Antivirus can’t? Hackers are winning the cyberwar and the global impact of malware has exceeded $3 trillion. The cost of Ransomware in Q1 2016 was $209 Million. Almost a 3,500% increase from 2015.
Application Control, where apps are verified as being trusted, is the number one type of breach prevention solution recommended by Dept. of Homeland Security’s US-CERT, Australia’s ASD, Canada, AIG, SANS, ISA, and NACD. It’s the only effective solution to the rapidly expanding array of today’s ransomware and malware threats.
