Allow Listing with Microsoft AppLocker
With the ever-increasing incidence of malware and malicious software, organizations are forced to deploy application control solutions. Microsoft's AppLocker provides a way to control access to applications and files so that they can only run when configured as allowed. Microsoft AppLocker uses a so-called "filter driver" to control application access. This is already included, tested and documented in Microsoft operating systems. This guarantees the highest level of security, stability and performance.
Creating an Allow List using Microsoft's own administration tools (GPO) presents challenges for most organizations. The list of approved applications changes regularly in most companies and applications to be approved are not always installed in standard directories.
deviceTRUST assists with AppLocker management through several options. By integrating management into the deviceTRUST console, our customers can easily create the required Allow List in an automated and secure manner. It is also easy to respond dynamically to changes in the application landscape. Our customers can implement an Allow List that is always unique, secure and productive. Malware and malicious software can be effectively prevented from executing; the user is not given the opportunity to cause harm unintentionally or intentionally.
deviceTRUST & AppLocker: better together!
As digital workplaces become more dynamic and mobile - whether delivered via managed notebooks, through traditional remoting environments or modern DaaS offerings - access to permitted applications and files is becoming more flexible. This makes it more difficult for organizations to implement security, compliance and regulatory requirements when accessing applications and files.
In principle, Microsoft AppLocker can control access to applications and files based on the user or their group membership. However, very many scenarios require a dynamic control capability that responds to different contextual situations. With deviceTRUST, in addition to the Allow List, it is possible to define exactly which user or user group can use which applications and files in which context.
