Even when you deploy an app perfectly, Windows might still throw users a UAC prompt, creating confusion and downtime. PolicyPak Least Privilege Manager removes those UAC prompts and enables Standard Users to do “Admin-like things” without risking security.
Deploying software isn’t the only way to install software on user’s machines. Sometimes users install software themselves, resulting in malware attacks that infect the network. PolicyPak Least Privilege Manager stops malware in its tracks by only letting users install software that you authorize.
After you deploy an app, sometimes, users can’t open it with the right application, no matter how hard you try. Does opening PDFs in Microsoft Edge instead of Adobe Reader ring a bell? Well, PolicyPak File Association Manager fixes those pesky defaults once and for all!
After deploying an app, you’ll need to ensure your users have easy access. Unfortunately, Windows 10 & 11 doesn’t give you much control over where and how you customize Start Screen and Taskbar tiles. Fortunately, PolicyPak gives you complete control over placement, so end users can get work completed easier and faster.
Standardizing and securing your applications is job 1. In this example, we'll take a simple application, like WinZip and lock it down. Then you can use what you learn here to deploy applications via PDQ Deploy and then lock them down with PolicyPak Application Settings Manager.
To make sure users aren’t messing with settings like “installing add-ons” and “blocking reporting attack sites,” you have to lock down Firefox settings. With PolicyPak, you can quickly lockdown FireFox security policies in any Windows 10 & 11 environment, so users don’t inadvertently violate your security or compliance mandates.
