Enabling Known Programs
Enabling Known Programs, referred to as Application Control or Application Whitelisting, is a recommended Australia Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) Essential 8 strategy used to prevent cyber attacks. The process ensures that only approved applications can run on a computer or in a trusted location or network. The goal of controlling is to prevent any malicious code (malware) from entering the business network or individual computers.
Application control is considered one of the most effective mitigation strategies in ensuring the security of systems by the ACSC. Our Cyber Security Management System (CSMS) includes application control to ensure your organisation is protected.
