The Carbon Black App Control Server can take advantage of your Active Directory (AD) environment to set access privileges for users of the Carbon Black App Control Console. You can assign security policies to computers and provide user and computer metadata. Also, you can designate certain groups or users to be able to install software on computers that are managed by Carbon Black App Control, and have the software automatically approved.
