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. Application Control is included in all cybersecurity packages from GOLD upwards. You can read more about Application Control benefits here.
