Comodo Endpoint Security Manager Protects Enterprise Data with DDP

Rather than permit executable computer files to install themselves unless they appear on a blacklist, Comodo's Endpoint Security Manager protects enterprise data on a new model: default-deny protection (DDP). The default-deny model refuses by default to execute any files, as opposed to the more widely-used default-allow model.

Comodo Endpoint Security Manager comprises Comodo's firewall and its proprietary antivirus software. Combined, they offer powerful default-deny protection. The protection software quarantines any software file entering a computer system unless it appears on Comodo's proprietary whitelist of files known to be harmless. System users may then choose to allow the quarantined files to install and execute.

With industry-standard default-allow protection, malicious software such as viruses, keyloggers, Trojans or buffer overflow attacks can wriggle in to the computer and install itself without the user's knowing or being able to stop it. Computers are exposed to malicious software if a computer user opens an infected email, or reads from an infected thumb drive or disk. Default-allow systems only stop malware if it is already on the security vendor's list of known malware, and if the computer user has updated the list.

The whitelist of allowable files in Comodo Endpoint Security Manager now exceeds two million making it easier than ever to use.
