As an essential component of a layered security strategy, Faronics Anti-Executable and its application whitelisting technology ensures endpoint security and productivity by only allowing approved applications to run on a computer or server. Any other programs - whether they are unwanted, unlicensed, or simply unnecessary-are blocked from ever executing.
Application whitelisting also enforces compliance with organizational IT policies.
