One of the best ways to protect against malicious software is to prevent users from running unwanted applications with a technology called application control. Application control restricts the software that runs on a system to programs that meet the organization’s security policy. Learn about implementing application control via whitelists and blacklists, patching applications, and host software baselining.

The blacklisting approach offers users…much more flexibility.…Instead of listing the applications that users are…allowed to run, administrators list prohibited applications.…This is much easier for users…but reduces the effectiveness of application control.…Windows provides the App Locker functionality…to implement application control.…Let's go ahead and build an App Locker application control…
