Improving desktop security is a key initiative for nearly all companies. This is fueled by an increased recognition of the threat unsecured desktops pose, as well as a need to meet compliance regulations. Removing administrator rights from end users when they log into their desktop is the Holy Grail of desktop security. However, implementation of this level of security has been difficult due to the fact that ordinary activities an end user needs to do for their job, such as running certain applications or managing certain desktop settings, require users to have administrative privileges.

  • Security implications when users operate computers with administrative privileges
  • The compliance requirements for removing administrator rights
  • How to overcome implementation difficulties and ensure end users can perform all necessary tasks for their jobs
  • The combination of technologies needed for effective implementation
