In SecureAPlus context, whitelist is a list of trusted programs, which are allowed to run. The programs that are not in the whitelist are not trusted, so they will not be able to run until the user give them permission, by whitelisting them.

This concept is the opposite of the traditional antivirus, which is using blacklist concept. In blacklist concept, only programs that are listed in the blacklist, are not allowed to run.
