In today's Windows environment, end users are accustomed to having local administrator privileges which allow them to download a variety of applications and potentially misconfigure their PCs. While standard wisdom may be to simply solve the problem by revoking local administrator rights on users' systems, the reality is that this may not be an option at all organizations. And removing local admin rights doesn't address applications such as Google Chrome or browser plug-ins for which admin access isn’t required.
Fortunately, there's hope for IT administrators seeking to gain control over the Windows environment while still offering local admin rights to the user base – through application whitelisting. With application whitelisting, IT can gain power over what types of applications their users install and limit their access to under-the-hood controls that determine how well configured the machine remains.
In this webcast, we'll examine:
- Why revoking local admin rights won't solve the problem of unwanted and malicious applications
- How to promote productivity through local admin access while achieving control over configuration changes
- Additional benefits of application whitelisting, including the prevention of zero-day attacks
