Need to stop a program from running on your Windows hosts now? Found a virus but don’t have an updated definition file from your anti-virus vendor?
Lieberman RED – Rapid Enterprise Defense Systems Management’s patented Access Control List (ACL) management technology, called File Cratering, can save the day.
With Cratering, you can identify and block malicious software from executing on client systems, rendering it harmless and preventing propagation throughout the Windows enterprise.
To use Cratering, select any file on a Windows host and set the permissions to Everyone:Deny Full-Control, then automatically reboot the machine. The program – whether it’s malware or an application that violates your organization’s security policies – won’t be allowed to start when the machine reboots.
RED Systems Management can also search for files on a list you provide, and Crater them if found on any machine. This allows you to take the proactive step of using Cratering to insert a series of files with known virus names. If known malware then attempts to infect your systems, it will be unable to do so because a locked file has already taken its place.
