Application Whitelisting by PC Matic Available in Australia to Prevent Ransomware's Global Spread

“Our mission is to protect the world from ransomware, and Australians understand that application whitelisting is a critical element in any security stack to proactively stop ransomware,” said Rob Cheng, CEO and Founder of PC Matic.

In direct response to the spread of ransomware, the Australian Signals Directorate, issued the Essential Eight Maturity Model with four maturity levels (0-3).  Levels 1, 2, and 3, require application whitelisting also called application control.

“PC Matic’s global whitelist makes it easy to deploy and maintain application whitelisting and to meet the application whitelisting requirements given in Essential Eight,” said Mani Padisetti, Chief Operating Officer at Digital Armour Corporation in New South Wales, Australia.

PC Matic’s initially plans to support the Australian market from the far western American state of Hawaii.

PC Matic’s Pro uses the company’s patented global whitelisting technology to proactively block cyber threats such as ransomware. PC Matic’s Pro is engineered to seamlessly stack on top of other traditional endpoint solutions and serves as an additional preventative layer for infrastructure, industry, and all levels of government.
