About Endpoint Privilege Manager: Endpoint Privilege Manager secures privileges on the endpoint and contains attacks early in their lifecycle. It enables revocation of local administrator rights, while minimizing impact on user productivity, by seamlessly elevating privileges for authorized applications or tasks. Application control, with automatic policy creation, allows organizations to prevent malicious applications from executing and running unknown applications in a restricted mode. This, combined with credential theft protection, helps to prevent malware gaining a foothold and contains attacks on the endpoint.
