This AV uses a new method of blocking malware- a whitelist. Only programs you authorize are able to run on your computer. Any thoughts on if we should use it or not?

Seems awfully expensive and I don't see any reputable or non self serving reviews, not to mention a lot of work from home marketing schemes attached to it. Sounds like snake oil to me.

Whitelisting is a good idea, but as Animal remarks, this product here is really expensive.

And their site lacks technical details. What do they whitelist? I assume EXEs, but to they whitelist DLLs too? And what about scripts (VBS, VBA, ...)?

And there's one thing they are not honest about "Speeds up your PC". This can't be true. I can't believe that a PC without their product is slower than a PC with their product.
