SIOUX CITY, IA, December 02, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- PC Pitstop, maker of PC Matic, the only commercial whitelisting security technology made in America, today announced that they have earned a Bronze Best New Product of the Year in the SMB category in the Best in Biz Awards 2016.
Now in its seventh year, Best in Biz Awards honors companies, teams, executives and products for their business success as the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts. This year's judges included representatives from PC World, Cnet, CIO, Computerworld, ZDnet, and others. Past winners include well-recognized brands such as 1-800-Flowers, Boyd Gaming, Citrix, Dell, Dyson, Eastman, Epson, Experian, Hilton, HP, LifeLock, National Association of Realtors, Safelite, Sandisk, StubHub, Symantec, UnitedHealthcare and YMCA, as well as many of the most innovative start-ups and up-and-coming companies from the U.S. and Canada.
"This award recognizes PC Pitstop's PC Matic as a superior endpoint protection that has the ability to protect millions of PC users and enterprises against ransomware, malware, advanced persistent threats (APTs), zero-day attacks, and polymorphic viruses," stated Dodi Glenn, VP of cyber security at PC Pitstop. "With the recent upsurge of malware and ransomware, traditional antivirus products are struggling to keep up. A few simple malware modifications can easily bypass traditional blacklist detections, making it a constant game of cat and mouse. With our whitelisting approach, these issues are virtually nonexistent, because PC Matic allows only trusted and vetted applications to run."
A recent Forrester Report (http://bit.ly/2gDk74U) discusses application control (i.e. whitelisting) as an essential endpoint security component, stating, "It's no mystery that antivirus (AV) technologies are fighting a losing battle against an increasingly sophisticated malware threat landscape... As a result, security professionals must consider a different approach, one that doesn't rely solely on an increasingly hard-to-manage signature blacklist. In its various forms, application control delivers a much-needed value proposition for endpoint protection."
