Mitigate threats without manually managing extensive lists

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. 

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.

User Workspace Manager

Application Control is part of the Ivanti User Workspace Manager (UWM) suite, which also includes these products.
