Chuck Leaver – Ziften Will Help Counter The Threat Of Extraneous Software

Written By Dr Al Hartmann And Presented By Chuck Leaver CEO Ziften

The fact about the PC ecosystem is such that extraneous procedures are all over and go into enterprise computers by every ploy you can possibly imagine. Leading software ISVs and hardware OEMs and IHVs have no ethical qualms with straining enterprise PCs with unneeded and undesirable software applications if they can grab a few royalty bucks on the side at your cost. This one flew up on my screen only today as I handled the recent headline-making Java security vulnerabilities.

Here is the setting – zero-day vulnerabilities were found just recently in Java, a key software element in many business applications. Department of Homeland Security professionals encouraged shutting off Java entirely, however that cuts off Java enterprise apps.

The option for where Java is required (within lots of enterprises) is to update Java, an Oracle software product, to obtain a minimum of the latest partial software application fixes from Oracle. But Oracle defaults installation of unwanted extraneous software through the Ask Toolbar, which many security-conscious however naïve users will assume is useful given the Oracle suggestion (and golly gee there is no charge), although browser add-ons are a notorious security risk.

Just Ziften integrates security awareness with extraneous procedure recognition and remediation abilities to help businesses boost both their security and their performance-driving operating efficiency Don’t choose half-measures that ignore extraneous processes multiplying throughout your business client landscape – employ Ziften to get visibility and control over your client population.
