Faronics Anti-Executable Standard
Faronics Anti-Executable Standard is the least powerful edition of the Faronics Anti-Executable suite that also comprises the Server and Enterprise iterations. With Faronics Anti-Executable Standard, you can quickly and easily set up multiple filters in order to help you keep your system protected even when the antivirus solution does not, due to several reasons.
As malware these days is strikingly popular and rather easy-to-get, lurking in every corner of the world wide web, antivirus companies have to work harder to provide the best tools to work with whenever a new threat is being discovered. This usually happens through an update of the database, but when such an operation is impossible, you can make sure that our computer is still safe from harm in various ways.
One particularly efficient way is the application control, the method you can use in order to block any program that does not pass every criteria that you previously set up in software such a Faronics Anti-Executable Standard. Any application that fulfills each and every rule you set can be executed, thus added to the whitelist, while the blacklist is the place for all the other ones that do not seem to be able to pass at least one of the tests.
The blacklist of Faronics Anti-Executable Standard can also serve as a very good quarantine pool for eventual malware, especially the zero-day attacks. Once this peculiar piece of software is deployed on the system, it automatically scans the contents of the hard drives in order to create the list that controls the execution of applications. Everything from there on in is totally customisable.
Overall, Faronics Anti-Executable Standard can help you a lot if you manage to get used to it and the features it delivers. Although it requires an advanced level of computer knowledge, Faronics Anti-Executable Standard is not completely inaccessible for beginners as it only takes time to get accustomed to it. As soon as you start taking full advantage of its functions, you may really grow fond of it.
