Faronics Anti-Executable and its application whitelisting technology ensures endpoint security and productivity by only allowing approved applications to run on a computer or server. Any other programs - whether they are unwanted, unlicensed, or simply unnecessary - are blocked from ever executing.

Application whitelisting also enforces compliance with organisational IT policies. Organizations benefit from productive user sessions each and every time, while IT personnel are guaranteed that desktop computers, notebooks, and servers are compliant with acceptable use policies, regulatory requirements, and software deployment schedules.

The Layered Security Approach

With the number and complexity of malware threats steadily increasing, relying solely on definition-based anti-malware solutions to ensure IT security is no longer enough. Anti-Executable offers a necessary additional layer of protection to the existing "blacklist" solutions such as anti-virus - without the need for definition updates.

Balancing Security with Flexibility

Anti-Executable makes applying Windows and third-party updates easy and effortless. On demand or scheduled maintenance modes allow for application updates and additions with automatic white list population.

Visit the Key Features page for a full listing of Anti-Executable's capabilities and options for the two Windows editions: Standard and Enterprise. These features also apply to the Standard and Enterprise versions of Anti-Executable Server.


Unauthorized or unwanted programs can cause a multitude of classroom security and productivity challenges. Distractive and malicious software can be accidentally or intentionally brought into classrooms through portable drives, email accounts, and web browsing. Allowing these programs to run on workstations presents a serious challenge to IT and instructor efforts to keep classroom computers running and student productivity high.

Block Distractive Software From Running - Applications that are unwanted in a classroom—such as games, instant messaging clients, and peer-to-peer file sharing applications—distract students from paying attention to the instructor or completing class assignments. Anti-Executable’s white list protection eliminates these threats to student learning by ensuring computer workstations are only able to run applications that enhance student productivity. Instructors are able to teach in computer labs with the confidence that the computers will be used only for their intended purpose.

Stop Malicious Software From Installing - IT administrators are always in a constant battle trying to keep school computers free of malicious software—such as keyloggers, spyware, malware, viruses, and trojans. These unwanted pieces of software can seriously cripple computing sessions, create damaging privacy leaks, and hamper student productivity. Anti-Executable protects students from these threats by blocking all unauthorized programs from installing or running while still allowing students to access the programs they need to complete their assignments. IT personnel experience a reduction in helpdesk requests as all malicious software is automatically blocked from running at the workstation level.

Keep Systems Free Of Unlicensed Software - Ensuring that the software on academic computer systems is fully licensed is a responsibility that IT personnel take seriously. If schools are found to be in non-compliance, the consequences can be quite expensive. Anti-Executable makes it easy to ensure that computers remain in full-compliance at all times by preventing unlicensed software from running or installing. Systems remain in full-compliance at all times without the need for constant IT attention.
