Under siege from a huge influx of constantly morphing malware, the old security model of using signatures to detect viruses, worms, and Trojans is hitting the wall. Whitelisting software adopts the reverse approach. These products take a snapshot of a known good system to create whitelisting rules and, thereafter, monitor systems for unapproved applications and even prevent unapproved programs from running. It represents a huge sacrifice in individual control, perhaps, but soon enough whitelisting may be the only solution to the pervasive malware pandemic.

  • Whitelisting

  • Hardware power management
  • Many-core chips
  • Solid-state drives
  • NoSQL databases
  • I/O virtualisation
  • Data deduplication
