Application Control

Application control is a security measure that can help businesses protect their data and systems from being accessed or modified by unauthorized users or applications. This is done by establishing rules limiting which programs can be installed on a computer or network and what actions those applications can perform. For example, an application control policy might prohibit all users from installing new software without getting approval from their IT department.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Application Control

For SMBs, application control is essential because it allows them to regulate how employees use their computers while also protecting against viruses and other malware that could potentially damage their networks or put sensitive information at risk. By restricting specific applications, SMBs can make it harder for hackers to access their systems and steal valuable information.
