UpTech is proud to be working with the world-renowned company, PC Matic, to bring all our consumers the best in device security with top quality PC maintenance for a great price…$50 for 5 PCs
Instead of using what our competitors use, an archaic blacklist approach, PC Matic uses a proprietary whitelisting technology for real-time, proactive protection against ransomware, advanced persistent threats (APTs), polymorphic viruses and zero-day attacks.
What does this mean? PC Matic functions by using a list of known, trusted programs and allows them to run. Everything else that tries to execute that is not on our whitelist is sent to our malware research team to be tested. Within 24 hours it is categorized either trusted or malicious.
How does whitelisting stop ransomware, polymorphic viruses, APTs, and zero-day attacks? With the advances in technology, malware is getting harder to stop. Instead of trying to keep up with the continually changing malware algorithms and codes, we do the opposite, and track tested safe programs. This methodology has been proven most effective in proactive detection, as evidenced by the Virus Bulletin Reactive and Proactive (RAP) Test. In August of 2016, PC Matic outscored every other tested competitor in proactive detection with a 99.9% detection rating.
Historically, PC Matic has exceeded the average proactive detection rate by 18%.
“Let’s use an analogy. Think of your house, could you possibly maintain a blacklist of all the people you don’t want in your house? A list of all known criminals and untrustworthy people? Probably not. However, I bet it’s manageable to write out a whitelist of all the people you trust to let in your home.”
Security Awareness Training
When it comes to cyber safety, most people completely rely on protection from others; their antivirus software, government cyber security agencies and built-in security features in email, just to name a few. While these forms of security can stop a lot of cyberattacks, especially if you’re being protected by PC Matic’s whitelist technology, knowing how the criminal underworld operates and how criminals steal information is key to protecting yourself in the cyber world. That’s why PC Matic has partnered with KnowBe4, to provide every PC Matic subscriber access to free, topnotch cyber security training.
PC Matic Adblocker
PC Matic’s adblocker technology keeps your PC and data secure from malicious ads, or malvertising attacks. These attacks have become increasingly advanced, effectively infecting PCs without the user even clicking on the ad. With the use of our adblocker, these malicious ads are blocked from ever showing up on your PC, therefore protecting your privacy, data and PC from infection.
Our adblocker also stops persistent pop-up advertisements. These ads are not only an annoyance, but they are also designed to obtain the user’s personal information such as location, computer information, and browsing habits. This information is in turn sent to other companies for further analysis and sales efforts. Since our adblocking technology effectively stops these pop-up ads, this personal information is not able to be gathered.
Our automated PC maintenance occurs every time you scan your computer with the PC Matic software. These features include:
- Defragments Disks
