“Application whitelisting is coming to Linux and Mac

“To date, application whitelisting vendor CoreTrace has offered
its Bouncer technology just for Windows, yet is now set to expand
the effort due to market demand and opportunity. According to
CoreTrace, Linux and Mac users face some of the same types of
application risks as their Windows peers, which is why there is a
need. The increased usage of Apple Macs is also helping to drive
demand for an application whitelisting solution. In the enterprise
market we have had a lot of customers ask us for Red Hat support,
there are a lot of Red Hat Enteprise Linux servers out there and
there are a lot of people running Red Hat on the desktop,” Dan
Teal, founder and CTO of CoreTrace told InternetNews.com.

“CoreTrace’s Bouncer technology enables administrators to lock
down applications by way of an application whitelist. The
technology was updated to version 6 in July of 2010 with
cloud-based intelligence to help enterprises determine if an
application poses risk to the organization based on known good and
known bad applications.”
