ManageEngine today announced the launch of Application Control Plus, advanced enterprise security software that brings together endpoint privilege management and application control capabilities. The move gives organizations greater authority over their critical applications by enabling control processes based on Zero Trust and threat prevention.
“Applications are ubiquitous and incredibly conducive to the productivity of any enterprise. However, they are also the biggest threat vectors in a network, so IT admins constantly have their hands full with application maintenance and access management,” said Mathivanan Venkatachalam, vice president of ManageEngine. “By taking on a trust-based approach to filtering and controlling software, enterprises can eliminate a huge percentage of their security challenges.”
Application Control Plus helps enterprises gain a holistic view of their network by aiding in the instant discovery and categorization of authorized and unauthorized applications. With application-level privileged management and dynamic, rule-based whitelisting and blacklisting, Application Control Plus ensures only authorized access occurs, minimizing an enterprise’s attack surface.
A comprehensive application control solution for Windows environments, Application Control Plus curbs both security breaches and nonproductive use of employee time by ensuring that only authorized applications are running.
Application Control Plus’ enterprise-oriented highlights include: Malware prevention, Rule-based list building, Endpoint privilege management, Flexible operation modes and Controls to improve productivity.
Going forward, ManageEngine plans to extend the capabilities of Application Control Plus to support macOS and other operating systems.
