As IT professionals know, endpoint security needs are evolving: new vulnerabilities are disclosed every day, new malware creation is exploding, and traditional AV signatures cannot keep up. You know that patch management and AV are necessary – but not sufficient – layers of endpoint defense. Intelligent application whitelisting is an important addition to your risk mitigation strategy, and taking prudent measures to establish a best practices approach can help reduce costs and risks in the long term. View these slides to learn the recommended steps to check unknown executables on your endpoints as we dive into a technical discussion of what the critical items to address:
* Prepare – properly laying the groundwork for implementing application whitelisting is crucial to ultimate success.
* Lockdown – preventing unwanted or dangerous changes while providing necessary flexibility to support business needs.
* Manage – maintaining the environment as application, end user and business needs develop.
