Overview McAfee® Application Control blocks unauthorized executables on servers, corporate desktops, and fixed-function devices. Application Control uses dynamic whitelisting to guarantee that only trusted applications run on servers, devices, and desktops. It eliminates the need for IT administrators to manually maintain lists of approved applications. It also gives IT control over endpoints to help enforce software license compliance. The software uses a dynamic trust model and innovative security features to prevent advanced persistent threats (APT) without requiring signature updates. It guarantees protection without impacting productivity. With Application Control, you can: Prevent any malicious, untrusted, or unwanted software from being executed. Automatically identify trusted software and grant it authorization to run. Block users from introducing software that poses a risk to your company. Important: You can deploy Application Control in a managed McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee® ePO™) environment or in an unmanaged environment, also called standalone, or self-managed.
