The Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC) and U.S. Government Configuration Baseline (USGCB) constitute a list of security settings, and at the top of the list is the removal of administrator rights. You already know that endpoints with administrator rights are a nightmare for IT. Users with administrator privileges install inappropriate applications, run bad software, change system settings, crash their computers, and it's also a huge vector for malware attack. Eliminating administrator rights prevents many forms of malware from completing their mission - all without ever needing to update an anti-virus signature. Even some forms of the dreaded zero-day attack can be prevented. Viewfinity's Privilege Management and application control solution:
Controls end user permissions for Windows applications and desktop tasks which require elevated permissions
Helps IT Administrators enforce consistent policies for endpoints to run/install applications and desktop functions by controlling user rights for desktops and mobile users
Adds another layer of defense to protect against malware and malicious security breaches
Read more about how Viewfinity enables US Government Agencies move to a least privileges environment to comply with the USGCB and FDCC mandate.
