By eliminating administrator rights (USGCB/FDCC mandate), you can prevent many forms of malware from completing their mission--all without ever needing to update an anti-virus signature.
The Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC) and U.S. Government Configuration Baseline (USGCB) constitute a list of security settings, and at the top of the list is the removal of administrator rights. You already know that endpoints with administrator rights are a nightmare for IT. Users with administrator privileges install inappropriate applications, run bad software, change system settings, crash their computers, and it's also a huge vector for malware attack. Eliminating administrator rights prevents many forms of malware from completing their mission - all without ever needing to update an anti-virus signature. Even some forms of the dreaded zero-day attack can be prevented. Viewfinity's Privilege Management and application control solution:
