Avecto Privilege Guard 2.6 simplifies locked-down Windows desktop environments, reducing the need for users to have local administrative rights by individually elevating the rights granted to applications and scripts that require such privileges automatically. Privilege Manager also reduces the impact and annoyance of Windows UAC prompts through the automatic privilege escalation process, allowing administrators to maximize Windows built-in security measures while avoiding the end-user hassle that normally accompanies those measures. Avecto Privilege Guard 2.6 delivers new granular controls, allowing administrators to build complex application privilege escalation policies, along with customizable end-user messaging, and time-based policy enforcement.
