Vulnerable endpoints are often the first point of attack in organizations targeted by malware. However locking down corporate endpoints in order to maintain security is at odds with end-user needs for flexibility around applications they want to install and run.
So how do you implement application control and privilege management without disrupting user experience or productivity?
AppSense’s privilege management technology ensures, with surgical precision, that desktop admin rights are granted only when necessary and don’t interrupt user’s workflows.
Additionally, remote or traveling users can request self-elevation, which Application Manager can then algorithmically review and approve, all while maintaining logs necessary for compliance.
With AppSense Application Manager, IT teams can enforce corporate security’s policy and licensing requirements while application entitlements can be defined per-user based on contextual factors such as location, device name, IP address, firewall settings or even time of day.
In addition, Application Manager also adds to your existing security’s defense and depth with a layer called Trusted Ownership™, which only allows applications introduced by trusted administrators execute. This adds additional endpoint protection on physical desktops and allows IT to minimize antivirus functions in XenDesktop VMs and XenApp servers, all without compromising performance or user experience.
