Introduction

McAfee® Application Control software offers an effective way to block unauthorized applications from running on your systems. Unlike simple whitelisting, it uses a dynamic trust model to avoid labor-intensive lists.

Today’s IT departments face tremendous pressure to ensure that systems and servers comply with security policies, operating procedures, and regulations. Users can unintentionally introduce software that poses a risk to the business, installs malware, creates support issues, and violates software licenses, compromising systems and your business. Businesses of all sizes need an efficient way to standardize systems and servers to make sure that they are running only approved software, without impacting productivity.

As enterprises face unknown software from the Internet, Application Control adds timely control to your system security strategy, and is attuned to the operational needs of enterprises.

This document is intended for using Application Control in the standalone configuration only.
