Included in the release is Faronics Identifile, a feature that checks files against a signature database and reports on manufacturer name, file hash, version, and whether the file is malicious. This facilitates improved workstation protection through a stronger understanding of files and their properties.
The new Temporary Execution Mode (TEM) feature allows unrestricted file execution for a specific time period based on users’ need. Users now have more flexibility to manage special projects or use specific programs without any whitelist restrictions. The TEM Reporting feature allows users to run a report on executed programs during Temporary Execution Mode. This amplifies the visibility and recognition of user actions during TEM. Finally the ability to now control .dll files allows for expanded control over workstation security.
The evolution of malware has strengthened the need for endpoint security beyond traditional anti-virus. Anti-Executable’s whitelisting technology provides an essential additional layer of defense between Faronics Anti-Virus and the ultimate system restore protection of Deep Freeze.
