Immediate ransomware protection

Application control is essential

Patching is the first step to reducing the risk of ransomware and other malware. But how do you block what you can't patch: zero-day exploits, legacy systems, and patches that could break something in your environment?

Application Control combines dynamic allowed and denied lists with privilege management to prevent unauthorized code execution without making IT manage extensive lists manually and without constraining users. Automated requests and approvals via helpdesk systems lighten the load for IT staff while providing users a streamlined experience.

Mitigate threats without manually managing extensive lists

With Application Control you can manage user privileges and policy automatically, at a granular level, and allow for optional self-elevation when exceptions occur.

Secure Windows servers

Enable server security with role-based user access.

Better control for MEM
Push Application Control configurations to endpoints. Use SCOM to gather events and auditing details.
Balance security with user needs
Deliver the apps users need, when and where they need them, for a great user experience while keeping endpoints safe.

Trusted ownership

Simplify allowed and denied lists. Allow only apps introduced by trusted administrators to execute.

Policy engine

Give your users access to what they need quickly, with seamless app access that relies on granular, context-aware policies.

Dynamic allowed and denied lists

Create flexible, preventive policies to help ensure only known and trusted applications can execute on a system.

Privilege management

Balance access and security. Remove full admin rights, but provide granular access to the apps users need. 

Digital signatures

Ensure application integrity by assigning digital signatures to prevent modified or spoofed applications from executing.

On-demand change requests

Enable automated requests for emergency privilege elevation or application access via integrated IT helpdesk system​.

Application archiving

Copy prohibited files users tried to run and store them in a secure repository for analysis.

License management

Manage which users have permission to run named applications and for how long.

User Workspace Manager

Application Control for Windows is part of the Ivanti User Workspace Manager (UWM) suite, which also includes Environment Manager, Performance Manager, Browser Manager and File Director. Using a centralized management console for all of the applications in the suite, UWM helps organizations to deliver responsive, secure desktops that provide an outstanding employee experience, save money on servers, manage users more effectively and reduce endpoint security risk.

Reporting and Insights

Application Control outputs a series of configurable events that track environment-wide instances of execution denials, elevation of privileges and other access-associated tasks. Application Control for Linux stores the audited events in the database, enabling you to report on the activities of your defined policies in order to ensure that they are not preventing legitimate activities from being carried out. You can access pre-built dashboards and reports generated from this aggregated event data via the Ivanti UWM Management Center or the Ivanti Xtraction self-service reporting software.
