- The ability to deny applications from launching. Even a standard user with the best intentions can bite into a worm, (yes, it’s a cheesy Apple reference, but you can’t ‘deny’, it works). Setting deny policies on applications or processes greatly reduces the risk of malware, vulnerable applications, or misconfigurations of the system.
- User Messages. Users like to be informed, especially if they click an application that is being denied. Being able to provide a consistent message to users informing them why something has been denied, or prior to certain elevations, helps your users and you.
