About Application Privilege Control

ID 45193

Application Privilege Control prevents applications from performing actions that may be dangerous for the operating system, and ensures control over access to operating system resources and to identity data.

This component controls the activity of applications, including their access to protected resources (such as files and folders, registry keys) by using application control rules. Application control rules are a set of restrictions that apply to various actions of applications in the operating system and to rights to access computer resources.

The network activity of applications is monitored by the Firewall component.

When an application is started for the first time, Application Privilege Control scans the application and places it in a trust group. A trust group defines the application control rules that Kaspersky Endpoint Security applies when controlling application activity.

We recommend that you participate in Kaspersky Security Network to make Application Privilege Control work more effectively. Data that is obtained through Kaspersky Security Network allows you to sort applications into groups with more accuracy and to apply optimum application control rules.

The next time the application starts, Application Privilege Control verifies the integrity of the application. If the application is unchanged, the component applies the current application control rules to it. If the application has been modified, Application Privilege Control rescans it as if it were being started for the first time.
