Learn How to Whitelist the Easy Way

Learning to whitelist doesn’t have to be difficult, but first you have to understand the term. A whitelist is a register or list of entries that are provided for particular services, mobility, privileges, recognition or access. To be able to use the service or opportunity, you have to be on the list. If you are not on the list, you won’t be recognized or approved to use the feature in question. The four primary types of things that can be whitelisted include:

  • Emails
  • Applications
  • Programs
  • LANs (Servers)

At Comodo, we understand that companies have the right and necessity to learn how to create whitelists so they can quickly and efficiently keep productivity high and information secure. Your employees have to be able to use emails, programs, and applications correctly and whenever they wish. You also have a responsibility to keep data secure from hackers and other cybercriminals.

Email Lists

While spam filters are employed to keep out emails that are deemed inappropriate, they aren’t perfect. You may need mail from domains, IP addresses, and individual emails that have the wrong mix of phrases and end up in spam folders. In some cases, it is as easy as adding the email address to your contact list but sometimes is more difficult.

Application Lists

To help prevent malware and viruses, many companies are now whitelisting applications that are deemed safe or appropriate to run. Learning to whitelist applications can save time because employees won’t have to “give permission” each time they need to use the app. The same can be true for programs. Most firewalls are set up to require an admin’s permission to use the program, especially if it could make changes to the computer.

Now that you understand the whitelist ability and function, you’ll need help learning how to do it. Our product can help you and will make it simple for admins to use. Contact us today to learn more.
