The Role of Application Control in a Zero Day Reality

Welcome to the world of security in 2011, when there doesn't seem to be enough time to plan your patches and update your defenses. But if you change your strategy, you can raise your security defense game.

The problem: In today's always on, Web 2.0-connected work environment, end users often download unwanted and unknown applications without much concern for potential risk. Coupled with the fact that around 1.6 million new malware signatures are appearing every month and a rising tide of zero-day attacks, IT managers need to raise their security defenses game. But whilst traditional endpoint security solutions are designed to deal with known attack vectors, there is no signature for zero-day threats.

The solution: Application control/whitelisting allows organisations to block unknown and unauthorised applications from executing by default and prevent zero-day attacks automatically. While application control has traditionally been used more in static environments, it has evolved to provide IT and end users with the necessary flexibility in even the most dynamic endpoint environments, improving security without impacting productivity.
