Anti-Executable offers a method to keep users on task and highly productive. Using Faronics' whitelist technology, Anti- Executable standardizes any environment by preventing all unauthorized or unwanted programs from being installed, regardless of whether they are downloaded from the Internet or introduced via any removable media. Anti-Executable provides total system control, restricting the user's ability to run or install any new executable program. On install, Anti-Executable performs a deep scan of the computer and authorizes every executable on it. From that point on, any other executable program is deemed unauthorized and will not run or install. Because Anti-Executable prevents any new executable from launching or installing, executable viruses and spyware will be permanently blocked without requiring definition file updates.
