Winternals releases Protection Manager Windows security solution
Winternals Software announced the release of Protection Manager security solution, which features a combination of unauthorized application execution prevention, merged with a least privilege user environment.
Protection Manager is a proactive Windows enterprise security solution that enables organizations to safeguard servers, desktops and notebooks from unauthorized external and internal influences. It monitors and intercepts all applications prior to execution and then blocks or permits each application based on centrally-configured rules, while adjusting security privileges as needed. Users who must run as local administrators can reduce the risk of high-exposure applications by running those applications with limited user privileges. Users who run as limited users can still run legacy applications that require administrative rights by having Protection Manager elevate the permissions of the specific application. This capability stops current and future malicious software attacks and prevents harmful applications from being unintentionally installed by users.
