SecureWave Combats Viruses with SecureEXE
- By Scott Bekker

SecureWave SA, a European security firm, developed a
security solution called SecureEXE, to stop Trojan horse viruses from attacking
SecureEXE works with a white list, meaning that only
applications that have been tested and approved will run on the network. All
unauthorized executables, including Trojan horse viruses, will not run.
SecureEXE is thus the last line of defense, after firewalls and virus scanner
On a SecureEXE-protected machine, all requests for execution
of a program are intercepted before they are carried out. SecureEXE calculates
a unique signature of the executable at that time and compares it to the
authorized database. If the program matches any in the authorized database, it
is run, otherwise, it will be stopped.
