About White Cloud Security
White Cloud Security provides a Trust-Listing cyber-security service that blocks all untrusted Programs and Scripts from running on users’ computer systems.
In 2017, the WannaCry and Petya Ransonware attacks infected hundreds of thousands of computers worldwide. Hacking has became a big business for criminal organization and is now more profitable than the illegal global drug trade in marijuana, cocaine and heroin combined. The cost of Ransomware for 2016, grew from $209 Million in Q1 2016 to $1B, and was expected to reach $5B in 2017. Application Whitelisting/App Control technology is the number one type of breach prevention solution recommended by Dept. of Homeland Security's US-CERT, the NSA, the FBI, Australia’s ASD, Canada, AIG, SANS, ISA, and NACD; but is nearly impossible to deploy and manage on a large scale. App Trust-Listing, the Next Generation of Application Whitelisting/App Control, uses Secure Crowd-Sourcing and Trust-Inheritance to simplify the deployment and management of which Apps are Trusted to run in your network. It's a simple and effective solution to the rapidly expanding array of today’s ransomware and malware threats.
