MYRTLE BEACH, S.C., Oct. 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — As ransomware attacks surge globally, Australians are choosing PC Matic’s application whitelisting to proactively stop ransomware. PC Matic announced technical and sales support for its business product line, PC Matic Pro and PC Matic MSP, during Australian business hours.
“Our mission is to protect the world from ransomware, and Australians understand that application whitelisting is a critical element in any security stack to proactively stop ransomware,” said Rob Cheng, CEO and Founder of PC Matic.
In direct response to the spread of ransomware, the Australian Signals Directorate, issued the Essential Eight Maturity Model with four maturity levels (0-3). Levels 1, 2, and 3, require application whitelisting also called application control.
“PC Matic’s global whitelist makes it easy to deploy and maintain application whitelisting and to meet the application whitelisting requirements given in Essential Eight,” said Mani Padisetti, Chief Operating Officer at Digital Armour Corporation in New South Wales, Australia.
PC Matic initially plans to support the Australian market from the far western American state of Hawaii.
PC Matic Pro uses the company’s patented global whitelisting technology to proactively block cyber threats such as ransomware.
