Windows Environment Management Secret: User Rights Management


User Rights Management is an area of Windows environment management that has grown explosively in the last few years, as enterprises have realized that giving users local administrator privileges leads to many security and help desk issues. Before the appearance of User Rights Management solutions, taking local administrator privileges away from a user created *more* help desk tickets because it interfered with web applications (those that embed ActiveX controls) and prevented updates to essential applications like the Java runtime, or Adobe Reader. In addition, some power users actually need to install applications themselves, but the Windows environment is all-or-nothing in terms of granting admin rights, and does not provide a centralized audit trail of when they were used. With User Rights Management products it is possible to selectively allow privileged operations, keeping the user productive and the desktop environment more secure.
