This means that the application control ensures CIA (Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability) of the application and the data associated with it.
Power user security breach is one of the most sensitive aspects of an organization. Many a times unintentional actions can result in serious security breaches. For example, if a user who has admin privileges can unintentionally install a software that has malware or virus in it. Some software installs can also cause network outage with increase in network activity which results in system/network outages (Ex :- Melissa virus in the 2000’s)
With the advent of cloud computing, the biggest challenges companies face is to monitor and control data security threats and vulnerabilities while still operating efficiently. This is where least privilege and application control work in tandem. Consider a real world scenario, where a normal user on a regular basis requires to install software or change settings on the system which requires administrative privileges. Normal users should not have the administrative privileges, but most organizations give access to the users to reduce sys-admin overhead. But this is a potential security risk. But with our solution of Cyberark viewfinity, we can elevate the admin privileges on demand and also give access only to the software which the user wants and is accepted by the organizational controls. This ensures that
