Learn More about the Android Whitelist and How to Use It
Administrators have the time-consuming task of creating an Android whitelist if their company uses this smartphone option. If you want control over the apps that are used, you must create whitelists so that users don’t inadvertently use the wrong apps or download something that could be a security risk.
At Comodo, we understand the difficulties and have a product that could help. It can help protect against:
- Remote takeovers
- SSL sniffing
- Man-in-the-middle/man-in-the-browser attacks
- Zero-day Malware
Malware and viruses can enter your computer via applications. Any device that is allowed on the Internet or intranet is at risk if you don’t have policies in place. Most companies do provide a document that states employees cannot download items or view websites that are deemed inappropriate and most employees sign these statements. However, without a way to enforce it, you could still be at risk.
What to Do
Our product can help you create a whitelist for applications, making it easier to manage all users from a single console. Administrators can push certain apps automatically, so they don’t have to wait for employees to download them. They can also block apps from being downloaded or used while on company time/property with a whitelist.
Unless it is on the list, it cannot be used or downloaded, which can keep security risks lower. Paired with our product, you will be as safe as possible from threats including the ones mentioned above and many more.
Whitelisting can be a better option than blacklisting because, with whitelisting, you don’t allow anything except those items that have been approved. Blacklisting allows everything except they ones added, which can be more time-consuming for organizations. If you’d like to learn more about whitelisting and our product, Contact us today.
