PolicyPak & Scriptlogic Privilege Authority

ScriptLogic’s Privilege Authority is a decent step toward reducing the reliance upon administrator rights. You can elevate Windows Processes, Active X Controls, Application Installers and more – all while keeping Standard Users as, well, standard users.

Reducing reliance upon administrator rights is great – it means more security – instantly.

But, running with Standard User rights doesn’t mean “true desktop lockdown.” Users can still misconfigure their desktops and applications and cause major damage and unnecessary headaches and security risks.

Standard Users can still misconfigure the operating system (Control Panel), key applications (Flash, Acrobat, Java), or desktop and business applications you have.

Here’s the video to show you where using Scriptlogic’s Privilege Authority is a great first step, and how PolicyPak goes the extra mile if you truly want a locked down and secure Windows:

Getting your organization toward a “Least Privilege desktop” is great. But it simply doesn’t solve the big problems left after you transition to Standard User rights:

  • How are you able to guarantee key application and operating system settings for users?
  • How can you prevent users from messing up their apps?
  • How can you ensure users won’t work around your important security and operating system settings?
  • How can you re-apply key application and operating systems settings when users are disconnected from the network?

A “Least Privilege” solution like Scriptlogic’s Privilege Authority doesn’t solve these issues.

Only PolicyPak does.

Users of Scriptlogic’s Privilege Authority will feel right at home with PolicyPak: both use Active Directory and Group Policy as the delivery for their rules.

PolicyPak prevents users from manipulating important settings, but also quietly reapplies misconfigured settings if a user or application happens to work around them.

In short, PolicyPak enhances your Scriptlogic Privilege Authority investment. And PolicyPak protects your users from themselves.

PolicyPak was designed by Group Policy MVP Jeremy Moskowitz – who “wrote the book” on Group Policy, runs GPanswers.com, and lives and breathes Group Policy and enterprise software deployments and desktop lockdown.
