Application Control

Application control solutions, sometimes referred to as “application whitelisting,” are a type of endpoint (e.g., desktop and server) protection under the broader category of host-based intrusion prevention systems. Basic application control solutions control whether a given piece of executable code is allowed to execute with more advanced solutions, subsequently offering varying degrees of control over what an application can do once it is running as it interacts with system resources.
