Xerox and McAfee collaborate on 'whitelisting' security system

Xerox and McAfee are teaming up to design a security system to help companies protect against threats to confidential data.  By integrating embedded McAfee software into Xerox technology, the two companies plan to use a whitelisting method that allows only approved files to run, offering more protection than traditional black listing tactics, where a user has to be aware of and proactively block viruses, spyware and other malicious software.  Additionally, the solution provides an audit trail to track and investigate the time and origin of security events, and take action on them.
