Companies often have a difficult time preventing endpoints and servers from deviating from corporate standards. Users may install unauthorized applications while on or off the corporate network that may introduce malware, present support issues, or create software licensing risks. With its industry-leading white listing technology, McAfee Application Control ensures that only trusted applications run on servers and endpoints while permitting software updates from authorized sources. This provides IT with the greatest degree of visibility and control over endpoints and also helps enforce software license compliance. Additionally, as companies strive to extend the viability of fixed function systems (Microsoft Windows NT legacy or low footprint), Application Control also extends an extra layer of protection without impacting system performance.
In regulated industries such as retail, healthcare, and critical infrastructure, devices such as point-of-sale (POS) terminals, customer service terminals, and legacy Microsoft Windows NT systems perform critical functions and often store sensitive data.
McAfee Application Control is ideal for extending a layer of protection to systems that are fixed function in terms of CPU or memory resources. Its low overhead footprint does not impact system performance, requires very low initial and ongoing operational overhead, and is equally effective in standalone mode without network access.
