McAfee Application Control software provides an effective way to block unauthorized applications and code on servers, corporate desktops, and fixed-function devices. This centrally managed whitelisting solution uses a dynamic trust model and innovative security features that thwart advanced persistent threats — without requiring signature updates or labor-intensive list management.
Complete protection from unwanted applications Application Control extends coverage to executable files, libraries, drivers, Java apps, ActiveX controls, scripts, and specialty code for greater control over application components.
Flexibility for desktop users and server admins IT can empower select desktop and server users to approve new apps instantly, and IT can choose to approve or reject these new apps during their routine audit.
Viable security for fixed-function and legacy systems Application Control has a small footprint and low performance overhead, making it the perfect solution for protecting fixed-function devices, such as kiosks and point-of-sale (POS) terminals. It also extends protection to your legacy Windows NT and Windows 2000 systems.
Minimize patching while protecting memory Allows you to delay patch deployment until your regular patch cycle. In addition, it prevents whitelisted applications from being exploited via memory buffer overflow attacks on Windows 32- and 64-bit systems.*
