Summary of the whitepaper:
In the box is Microsoft AppLocker, and it has a lot to offer; if you care to keep it maintained with a lot of care and feeding. But even then, AppLocker doesn’t address the number one concern of admins which is how to remove local admin rights. And, AppLocker doesn’t work at all with Windows Professional machines; only Windows Ultimate.
PolicyPak Least Privilege Manager, on the other hand does everything Microsoft AppLocker does, and more. Most specifically, PolicyPak Least Privilege Manager can enable IT Admins to remove local Admin rights, and elevate precise scenarios where Admin rights were once needed.
