What it does? Savant Protection provides application whitelisting. The next generation decentralized management approach allows the end point device to control the execution of applications. It does this by establishing a unique key or signature for each executable and device. With Savant Protection a signature for the same executable will be different on each device ensuring the highest level of security. It is the only solution to provide system lock down, prevent the use of unauthorized software and eliminate the intrusion and spread of malware without the processing and memory overhead required by today's centralized whitelist signature approach.
Innovative products such as Savant Protection’s Automated Application Whitelisting are bringing significant and quantifiable improvements in security and compliance to a wide array of industries. Savant clearly understands its customers’ needs; providing total control and security over endpoints without disrupting business.

What makes it Innovative? Savant Protection's next generation application whitelisting solution was purpose-built with the needs of enterprises in mind: to safeguard the organization while ensuring that business is not disrupted. Unlike other application whitelisting solutions that require a centralized massive list of signatures for approved programs that just keep growing, we offer a decentralized approach which creates an implicit whitelist. This provides key differentiating benefits. From a security perspective enabling the device to control the execution of applications by establishing a unique key or signature for each application and device prevents malware from running or spreading as it will not have a key and be considered unauthorized. From a business perspective users continue to work seamlessly and are not disrupted or blocked causing costly downtime because Savant Protection automatically whitelists the applications users need to get their jobs done.
With Savant Protection there is no need to update download or scan lists of known signatures. Permission to allow an application to run is local immediate and transparent to the user making it non disruptive. Additionally Savant Protection is the only application whitelisting solution to provide system lock down prevent the use of unauthorized software and eliminate the intrusion and spread of malware without the processing and memory overhead required by today's centralized whitelist signature approaches. With Savant Protection unauthorized applications are prevented from accessing the Central Processing Unit (CPU). This includes among others malicious applications such as viruses Trojans and Bots as well as well as those that impact productivity and system performance such as file sharing instant messaging and games.
It is important to note that although the solution offers a decentralized approach, it delivers a centralized view providing users with the best of both worlds. The console enables devices across the enterprise.
Targeted Users: SMB as well as large enterprises across verticals especially those that are security conscientious (financial sector, aerospace, manufacturing & pharmaceutical etc.)
