Are Pitstop software Behavior based or Signature based?

Recommended Posts

Hey justme, our product that is providing security is PC Matic, which is whitelist based. We only allow applications that are known good to run on the computer while all unknowns are blocked by default pre-execution. When unknowns are blocked they are then sent to our malware research team for analysis to determine if the application is good. Once marked good that is updated into our Global Whitelist so all of our users can run that application if they ever come across it. It's a unique approach compared to traditional security that would rely on blacklist signatures to block known bad applications or seeing bad behavior happen on the machine and blocking then rolling back changes.
