Privileged accounts or super user accounts are accounts that usually have access to all aspects of the IT infrastructure, information and data that others users are not privy to. Privileged account security deals with monitoring and managing these privileged accounts ensuring that there are customized policies and processes to ensure that there are no breaches in privileged accounts.

This also means that only users that are required to access a particular resource have access to it. Application control is a practice that blocks or restricts applications from executing in ways that puts data at risk. The controls vary based on the application and also the business purpose.
