What is Application Control?

To top

Application Control is essentially the list of all approved programs that are allowed to be installed on your computer. This means anything not on this list cannot be installed without administrative approvals. This protects both the company and the user via accidental installation, or if malware attempts to automatically install malicious programs or apps. You can read more about Application Control benefits here.

Installing Application Control

To top

Application Control is installed as part of the Remote Monitoring & Management (RMM) Platform installation. Please view the RMM Install Guide here: RMM Install Guide

Using Application Control

To top

Users will only experience Application Control when they need to install a new program or app, or, add a new program or app to the safe-programs list. For instructions on installing new programs, please visit: Guide Installing Programs & Apps

Best Practice Tips:
  1. To add a program to your business Control, please contact your ICT Manager to begin this process.
  2. In the event you try to install a program that has not been controlled, you will receive an Admin Approval Block screen. To navigate through this process, please see: Guide Installing Programs & Apps
