Shavlik Announces Availability of Application Manager for System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM)

Solution Blocks Malware and Ransomware, Enforces License Agreements and Controls End User Privileges

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - Sep 27, 2016) - Shavlik, a global leader in IT management and innovative security systems, today announced availability of Application Manager for System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), an AppSense product. The newly available solution is designed to reduce security risk, control application licenses and maximize SCCM investments. The product will be featured during Microsoft Ignite in Shavlik's booth #432.

"Adding Application Manager for SCCM to the Shavlik product suite enables us to deliver new application control and privilege management capabilities to organizations using Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager," said Rob Juncker, vice president of R&D, Shavlik. "With Application Manager added to our product portfolio, we are furthering our focus on addressing the acute security needs of today's enterprise while supporting license agreement enforcement and granular end user privilege control."

Application Manager for SCCM reduces endpoint security risks and adds value to SCCM application control and endpoint security functions with dynamic whitelisting and highly granular privilege management. Application Manager for SCCM enables IT administrators to:

  • Control applications and end user actions on the endpoint using a centralized console

  • Prevent unknown applications from launching by using Application Manager's Trusted Ownership™ technology which automatically blocks user-introduced applications and unknown code, including malware and ransomware

  • Enforce compliance with license agreements by enabling admins to limit the number of applications instances by user, define the devices or users that can run an application, and determine the timing of application availability

  • Control end user privileges with precision, including the ability to manage privileges at the application or individual task level instead of at the session or account level

Application Manager for SCCM is now available from Shavlik. For more information email sales@shavlik.com.
