And so I continue with series on some of the lesser-known, fruitiest features to be found in our products. This time I’ll be concentrating on whitelisting – a completely different approach to malware protection, which at the moment is included in KIS, PURE, and the new generation of our corporate products.
So why did I choose this seemingly techie term that could frighten off a respectable non-overly-techie reader from the very beginning?
The answer is quite simple: in a way whitelisting is pretty much revolutionary for the industry – based on a totally new paradigm, which goes far beyond traditional pattern-based technology. As a result this a great opportunity for the anti-malware industry to be one step ahead in the battle with cyber-criminals, and for you – to be better protected against unknown threats. And in fact whitelisting is not that techie – see for yourself below!
So, what is whitelisting?
A list written in correction fluid? Such a thing may exist, erm, I guess. But no, KL’s whitelisting is something a little different.
