Red Button is the security model of the future.

CrossTec Corporation today announced the release of Red Button Process Control v2 from Red Button Systems. Red Button is the newest breed of desktop protection for the enterprise. Red Button offers centralized, robust process control that stops unwanted programs, processes, and DLLs before they start. Red Button v2 now achieves this without the complex and burdensome setup required by other products in this space. According to Stu Sjouwerman, former President of Sunbelt Software, “Red Button is the security model of the future.”

Red Button reduces complexity by implementing the Program7 methodology. Unlike first generation white- and black-listing solutions that require complex and cumbersome upfront configurations, Red Button begins a ‘self-learning’ process on installation and activation. In learning mode, Red Button analyzes the network and begins to build an enterprise-wide profile of processes. This profile is analyzed by the expansive Red Button Process Cloud. Safe processes are allowed, threats are disallowed, and unknown processes are handled automatically.

"Historically, security technologies have reacted to threats, dealing with attacks after the fact,” said Jeff Richards, VP at CrossTec Corporation. “This strategy leaves enterprises open to the latest breed of viruses and malware. Red Button prevents the newest zero-day and even zero-hour threats from even starting, all without adding additional workload to already overloaded IT security teams.”

Villy Rasmussen, President of Red Button Systems, commented: “At Red Button Systems, we have strived to create a product that ensures strong, ongoing protection against targeted and zero day attacks while remaining simple and easy to use.”
