Creating a UAC Whitelist Can Be Easy

User Account Control for Windows can be very annoying, especially when it asks for approval on particular apps each time. At Comodo, we understand that productivity is an essential part of the workplace. If your employees have to stop their thought processes and click okay for every application, they aren’t going to be as productive as possible.

The user account control feature has its own whitelisting ability, but it may not be enough. For example, Task Scheduler can be used to add frequent offenders of the annoying prompt, effectively creating a UAC whitelist. However, it can be tricky and annoying to do so.

How We Help

Our product ultimately helps remove known threats, including:

  • Data exfiltration
  • Fund transfer fraud
  • Man-in-the-middle and Man-in-the-Browser attacks
  • Keylogging
  • SSL Sniffing

Another ability is to help you whitelist effectively. The steps necessary to create a whitelist for the user account control are difficult and require you to go to many different areas within the product. Our product allows you to add applications to the approved list. It will automatically override the UAC’s prompts, making it simple and easy to use.

Benefits

Employees won’t have to “approve” the use of the app each time and administrators won’t have to sift through all the logs created by employees attempting to access an unsafe application. Administrators can add their approved programs and applications directly using our software. It will ensure that dangerous or unknown apps aren’t downloaded or used. If they are, you will be notified and a log created. However, these records will provide pertinent information instead of annoyances.

Employees will be able to work more proficiently and won’t be bogged down by clicking yes each time they want to open something. To learn more, contact us today.
