This week’s sponsor interview is with Dave Cottingham from Airlock Digital.
They make whitelisting software that’s actually useable. And until I did this interview I didn’t know that their agent actually does host hardening as well, which is pretty cool. Since we last spoke they’ve also popped up in CrowdStrike’s app store thingy, which means a bunch of you Crowdstrike customers will be able to dabble in some whitelisting if you want to.
Dave joins the show to talk about a bunch of stuff, including their experience having Silvio Cesare do a code audit on their agent.
