Limit which applications can be installed onto Windows Desktop devices with the Application Control profile. Limiting application installs protects your data from malicious apps and prevents end users from accessing unwanted apps on corporate devices.
To allow or prevent installation of applications on devices, you can enable Application Control to whitelist and blacklist specific applications. While the compliance engine monitors devices for whitelisted and blacklisted apps, Application Control prevents users from even attempting to add or remove applications. For example, prevent a certain game application from ever installing on a device, or allow only specific apps whitelisted to be installed on a device. Blacklisted apps installed on the device before the Application Control payload is pushed to the device are disabled after the profile is pushed.
The Application Control profile helps reduce the cost of device management by preventing user from running prohibited apps that cause issues. Preventing apps from causing issues reduces the number of calls your support staff must answer.
