Application control software for enterprises

“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. By taking on a trust-based approach to filtering and controlling software, enterprises can eliminate a huge percentage of their security challenges.”
Mathivanan Venkatachalam, vice president of ManageEngine

Powerful Application Control

Countless applications that are left unsupervised will lead to a lot of security problems in your network. According to the National Vulnerability Database, the number of application-related security issues has increased 273 percent during the last decade. This certainly emphasizes just how important it is, to adopt a 0-trust approach. Even though you do that by filtering and controlling applications, you will still experience attacks that leverage priveleged access. By combining black/white listing and initiating application-specific privileges you can begin to tackle these application-related threats.

Application Control Plus is advanced enterprise security software that brings together endpoint privilege management and application control capabilities.

Application Control Plus automates the generation and maintenance of application whitelists and blacklists based on the specified control rules. With built-in sophisticated Endpoint Privilege Management, Application Control Plus is a comprehensive solution tailored to fit the application control needs of every growing enterprise.

This gives organizations greater authority over their critical applications by enabling control processes based on Zero Trust and threat prevention.

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.

A fully functional, 30-day trial is also available, as well as the Free edition for startups and small businesses to manage up to 25 computers.

Features

Application Whitelisting

Application whitelisting is the process of creating a list of trusted applications and allowing only those apps to run on managed devices. The concept of allowing only what you trust cannot be taken lightly, considering applications tend to be the route through which cyberattacks occur, leading to either major financial losses or massive data leakage.

What is application blacklisting?

Application blacklisting is a technique used to prevent certain applications or executables from running in a network. If application whitelisting is a proactive threat prevention technique, then application blacklisting is more like damage control. ManageEngine Application Control Plus' application blacklisting software simplifies blacklisting by enabling policy-based list creation and updating.

Flexibility regulator

Every enterprise, regardless of size, has different application control requirements. Traditional application control solutions might not satisfy the needs of all the enterprises alike. ManageEngine's Application Control Plus is a smart solution that can meet the demands of different kinds of enterprises of all sizes. Application Control Plus functions in several modes, each built to satisfy various levels of flexibility preferred by different enterprises.

What is endpoint privilege management?

Endpoint privilege management is the process of governing privileges so that admin privileges aren't excessively distributed among users. This prevents users from exploiting functions beyond their requirements, which is a common risk of elevating the entire user account privilege. With 80 percent of security breaches involving privileged credentials, endpoint privilege management is crucial for effective security. If an attacker gets their hands on a set of privileged credentials, they would be able to access all the endpoints present in your organization in no time, easily stealing data or injecting malware.
