Why application whitelisting services are important
Imagine your network is an exclusive club where only those on the guest list or in good standing with the hosts are welcome. Similarly, application whitelisting works like an event you can't enter because your name isn't on the list.
Application whitelists lock down computers to ensure only authorized apps are allowed to run. This is also called a trust-centric approach. It works on the logic that hackers are already present, so you should take on as much of a defensive posture as possible.
Therefore, only the "known good" applications should be running on your systems. Proper use of whitelisting ensures the safety of your systems and protects them from spying apps, ransomware and much more. We have created enough application whitelists to identify which providers should be trusted in your network.
A whitelisting plan is essential
A step-by-step planning process is essential for a successful deployment, and we can help you in each phase. We can help you perform some of the essential tasks needed to achieve security via application whitelisting, such as:
- Software inventory
- File monitoring
- Incident response
- Access streamlining
The first step is to identify the programs and processes needed to operate the business. The goal is to achieve the right balance between security and usability.
To successfully protect your systems, the whitelist should allow programs necessary for normal work operations. Conversely, it should block any suspicious or redundant apps.
Two vital considerations should guide your choices:
- The job roles that exist in the system
- The necessary background functionality
Our first goal is to take an inventory of your apps and processes with a magnifying glass verifying which ones are required to run your business.
Whitelist best practices
To enhance both the usability and security of your systems, the whitelist can be defined in two ways. Firstly, there's the individual, person-by-person basis. This works for smaller companies where only a small number of people have access to company devices.
Otherwise, the role-based approach works much better. In this method, we go through your system, isolate specific roles and descriptions, and give them permission to use only certain apps. It reduces your vulnerability to cybersecurity threats by not only creating a stronger system but also making sure your employees can't accidentally endanger your network.
A whitelisting program is only as good as the list itself. We'll help ensure it's set up correctly.
