“Why Should Organizations Moving from CSA Consider Application Whitelisting as a Viable Alternative to Antivirus?”
Since Cisco initiated the end-of-life process for the Cisco Security Agent (CSA) endpoint security solution, IT managers responsible for their organization’s CSA implementation have been looking for the best ways to secure their systems.
CoreTrace recently sat down with Eric Ogren, founder and principal analyst of the Ogren Group and former executive at OKENA, the company whose technology formed the basis of CSA, to discuss the current state of antivirus security and why application whitelisting is a viable alternative solution.
If you are looking to replace CSA, read the Q&A brief to learn Eric’s views on questions such as:
- Are people considering dropping antivirus because it is no longer effective, or do they need to find something to add to it?
- With people looking to migrate away from CSA, why should they look at application whitelisting?
- Are people teams really looking to deploy application whitelisting beyond single purpose systems and onto their desktops?
- Change on endpoints is inevitable. Can whitelisting really deal adequately with a dynamic environment? If so, what are the keys to making it successful?
- Application whitelisting and blacklisting seem to be converging. What are the primary ways you see this occurring?
