Eliminating Administrator Rights Prevents Malware and Ensures Federal Desktop Core Compliance

The Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC) and U.S. Government Configuration Baseline (USGCB) constitute a list of security settings, and at the top of the list is the removal of administrator rights. You already know that endpoints with administrator rights are a nightmare for IT. Users with administrator privileges install inappropriate applications, run bad software, change system settings, crash their computers, and it's also a huge vector for malware attack. Eliminating administrator rights prevents many forms of malware from completing their mission - all without ever needing to update an anti-virus signature. Even some forms of the dreaded zero-day attack can be prevented. Viewfinity's Privilege Management and application control solution:

  • Controls end user permissions for Windows applications and desktop tasks which require elevated permissions
  • Helps IT Administrators enforce consistent policies for endpoints to run/install applications and desktop functions by controlling user rights for desktops and mobile users
  • Adds another layer of defense to protect against malware and malicious security breaches
Read more about how Viewfinity enables US Government Agencies move to a least privileges environment to comply with the USGCB and FDCC mandate.
