Whitelisting is an advanced malware threat detecting tool that allows only approved programs and files to run on systems. It is recommended for every retail business for securing networks, applications and firewalls.
Today’s malware is too complicated and some of the usual blacklisting or anti-virus are just not enough. According to an article written by an expert Information Security Manager, “By implementing the whitelisting technologies to only allow known applications and processes, enterprises can reduce risk, lower support costs and increase visibility into every network endpoint, another important layer in the ongoing effort to ensure effective defense-in-depth against advanced attacks”.
Today’s retailers should worry about running their business and not about which programs to use to keep their networks secure. Omega ATC handles security concerns, particularly for Level 2 merchants. Call us today 636-557-7777.
