Find out the benefits of least privilege

88% of all Critical vulnerabilities reported over the last five years could have been mitigated by removing admin rights.

Doing so also greatly reduces the risk of losing data, either by cyber attack exploiting privileges, or misuse.

And with least privilege also increasingly a requirement to achieve compliance, there’s even more reason to take action and ensure least privilege across your organization.

Achieve least privilege

Defendpoint's privilege management capability ensures minimum impact for end users, for maximum productivity gain.

Working in tandem with application control, this powerful combination makes whitelisting simple - allowing you to assign privileges directly to applications, tasks and scripts to protect the endpoint against attacks that hit the operating system.

Our policy-based approach means rules are assigned to different groups of users, depending on their needs. Defendpoint effectively stop cyber attacks with low maintenance overheads and implementation costs.
