Reducing Local Admin Exposure Through Application Whitelisting
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.

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.
