Instead of using what our competitors use, an archaic blacklist approach, PC Matic uses a proprietary whitelisting technology for real-time, proactive protection against ransomware, advanced persistent threats (APTs), polymorphic viruses and zero-day attacks.
What does this mean? PC Matic functions by using a list of known, trusted programs and allows them to run. Everything else that tries to execute that is not on our whitelist is sent to our malware research team to be tested. Within 24 hours it is categorized either trusted or malicious.
How does whitelisting stop ransomware, polymorphic viruses, APTs, and zero-day attacks? With the advances in technology, malware is getting harder to stop. Instead of trying to keep up with the continually changing malware algorithms and codes, we do the opposite, and track tested safe programs. This methodology has been proven most effective in proactive detection, as evidenced by the Virus Bulletin Reactive and Proactive (RAP) Test. In August of 2016, PC Matic outscored every other tested competitor in proactive detection with a 99.9% detection rating. Historically,
PC Matic has exceeded the average proactive detection rate by 18%!
