Solidcore Systems, Inc. was a software company based in Cupertino, California, that developed software to detect and prevent unwanted change. It was acquired by McAfee in June 2009.[2]

Its products provide change management auditing, configuration control, PCI compliance and system lockdown used by enterprise IT organizations worldwide.

Solidcore competitors in change detection and configuration control domain include Lumension, Tripwire, Cimcor, Bladelogic and Ionx. Solidcore competitors in the security domain include Carbon Black, Coretrace and Symantec.

Its product for change prevention and security is based on white-listing of executables, which effectively locks down the operating system (MS Windows variants/Linux variants/Solaris/HP-UX...) by denying any arbitrary executable from running.
