FreezeX, the latest innovation from Faronics, provides a revolutionary method to address blended threats and unauthorized or illegal software. Utilizing its unique whitelist technology, FreezeX provides proactive protection against spyware, keyloggers, trojans, viruses, root kits or any other malware. Powerful and secure, FreezeX is an economical software solution that prevents unauthorized executables from launching regardless if they are downloaded or introduced via removable media or the network.
According to Vik Khanna, director of sales at Faronics, ÂIT professionals currently spend up to 50% of their time diagnosing, cleaning and patching workstations. Blended threats are not the only culprits; removing unwanted software installation by users is equally time consuming.Â
FreezeX enables IT Professionals to spend more time on mission critical tasks and less time performing routine maintenance. As a result, user up time is improved dramatically. Further, FreezeX is an ideal de facto license manager maintaining an organizationÂs current software compliance.
Existing security programs used to prevent installation or launching of new software rely on a blacklist concept or heuristic techniques. Similarly, existing antivirus software relies on definition files. The problem with these methods is that they need to be monitored and kept up to date at all times. Also, it is often trivial for a creative user to get around the protection.
FreezeX offers a revolutionary new method of protection based on the concept of a whitelist. During installation, FreezeX performs a deep scan of the workstation and authorizes everything on it. From that point on, any other executable is deemed unauthorized and will not launch or install whether it was downloaded from the Internet or introduced via removable media or the network. Therefore, there are never any definition files to maintain or update. Any new executable, whether itÂs a program, virus, keylogger, trojan, or rootkit, will never run.
