Default deny approach to software installs

Comodo Group : 04 March, 2009  (New Product)
Comodo whitelist used as basis of default-deny approach to protecting users from malicious code and is available free to internet users
Comodo Internet Security puts power in the hands of the people with a default deny approach to installing software. The award-winning suite includes both firewall and anti-virus software and is available to Internet users entirely free.

Melih Abdulhayoglu, Chief Security Architect and CEO of Comodo said, 'Other security software works on a default-allow basis. If you allow software in by default, you admit any software as long as that software is not on a blacklist of known malware.' Malware is software that can harm computers or can be used to steal personal information.

Comodo Internet Security instead denies access to all software that is not on Comodo's whitelist. Comodo's whitelist includes more than 2,000,000 files that are known to be safe for computers.

If Comodo Internet Security does not recognize the file, it prevents instructions on the file from running. This gives the computer user a chance to review the file and be sure it is safe before it can harm the computer. (Users who are not certain they can recognize malicious software can utilize Comodo's newest feature called ThreatCast. ThreatCast reports back to the user how other Comodo users have chosen to react to the file, including information on the number of users permitting the software to install itself.)

'Systems on a default-allow basis permit any software to install itself, as long as the software is not blacklisted. Comodo Internet Security's default-deny system holds it at bay if it is not on the whitelist,' said Abdulhayoglu

Comodo Internet Security comprises Comodo's proprietary firewall and antivirus software. PC owners may download one package alone or both for complete protection.
