Least Privilege Management For Protecting From Malware And Security Breaches 
PPN Newsletter  2 May 2008 
Once inside a company's environment, access to various areas should be restricted based on business need. However, there is a need to allow end-users to run applications that require administrator rights, and install approved software and ActiveX controls. These end-users with administrator rights have long been the Achilles heel of desktop security, as these rights can be exploited by malware and users to change standard desktop configuration settings, install unlicensed software and disable other security solutions. PPN would like to introduce you a privilege management solution, BeyondTrust Privilege Manager, to you.
BeyondTrust Privilege ManagerTM 
A Pioneer in Least Privilege Management
 BeyondTrust Privilege Manager was the first product to enable the security best practice of Least Privilege in Windows environments by allowing administrators to assign end users permissions to required or selected applications. Hundreds of organizations worldwide in industries such as financial, healthcare, government and military reply on BeyondTrust Privilege Manager to secure their enterprises.
Through BeyondTrust Privilege Manager, administrators can attach permission levels to Windows applications and processes. Privilege Manager is implemented as a true Group Policy extension. By setting Privilege Manager policy, end-users without administrative privileges will be able to run all applications.
