"Application whitelisting is coming to Linux and Mac platforms.

"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."
