    I would think Mark means that OS components (usually whitelisted by security applications) are frequently abused now, so "whitelisting is dead." :)

    To me, whitelisting is not dead. You whitelist OS components (the system space), especially the critical ones. Then, protect them against non-whitelisted objects to preserve their integrity. Whitelisting has its purpose. One just needs to utilize this purpose for better security. :)

    The word "initiated" is incorrect, to me. I don't think that's the right term for the origin of malware attacks. :)

    Whitelisting plus monitoring of program actions = good security model. :)

    Mark means you cannot implicitly trust (whitelist) what Microsoft ships with Windows. He is not saying anything that has not been known for the past few decades.

    In the context of AppGuard, it blocks everything by default in User Space, so it doesn't much matter what is whitelisted in System Space. Also, AppGuard is SRP with the ability to disable processes - so if the user wants to harden their AppGuard install then they may do so - and AppGuard has Guarded programs that are run with restricted privileges.

    So, is there still no difference between v4 and v5? Lifetime license for v4 not valid for v5?

    Thanks. Will just stick with v4 as long as possible. Sure wish they would offer a lifetime license for v5; at least for long time users of AG.

    No differences at all, just the licensing changed.

    Lifetime licenses make no economic sense. We might as well close up shop and all go home for good.

    You cannot even make money with lifetime version licenses. That's why we switched to the annual license subscription model just like virtually everyone else.

    Version 5 needs to query the license server every 21 days or else the license will deactivate. Otherwise there is no meaningful difference.
