Avecto released a security update for Privilege Guard at the beginning of this year to protect running processes against potential code injection threats. This added protection ensures that Avecto continues to help its customers to achieve the least risk Windows 7 desktop.
Privilege Guard is configured through Group Policy, and only applications that are included within the policies are elevated, removing the decision from the end user. For more advanced users, on demand elevation allows the user to elevate applications, as required, with a full audit trail, including application forensics. With Privilege Guard, all users logon with a standard user account and only the applications that require privileged access are elevated. Privilege Guard integrates closely with UAC, and can completely suppress UAC prompts or replace them with more corporate aligned messaging, which is crucial when informing users of their actions.
Avecto is the leader in Windows privilege management, helping organizations to deploy secure and compliant desktops and servers. With its award winning Privilege Guard technology, organizations can now empower all Windows based desktop and server users with the privileges they require to perform their roles, without compromising the integrity and security of their systems.
