Application control is a security practice to restrict unauthorized and unwanted applications from executing on endpoints to guard the organization‘s endpoint environment. Application control solution protect corporate endpoints such as desktops, laptops, smartphones, tablets, servers, Point-of-Sale (POS) systems, virtual machines, and other fixed functioning devices. These solutions safeguard the enterprise data and endpoints against viruses, Trojans, and malwares as well as advanced threats such as Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), zero-day malwares, and targeted attacks.

Traditional security solutions are proving to be ineffective with the increasing number of sophisticated threats on multiple endpoints. This is encouraging enterprises to deploy application control solutions for improved security measures and special protection at multiple endpoints against potential threats. Also, the lack of awareness of end users regarding security is a significant challenge faced by the security vendors these days. Educating them about multi-level security solutions will ensure proper enforcement of application control policies, which is vital for reducing the potential risks on endpoints and for the growth of the application control market.

The report on Vendor Comparison in Application Control based on DIVE methodology reviews major players that offer application control solutions and outlines the findings and analysis on the basis of two broad categories: Product Offerings and Business Strategies. Each category carries various criteria, based on which the vendors are evaluated.

Based on the extensive secondary and primary research, key information about the vendors’ product offerings and business strategies was gathered. After the completion of data gathering and verification process, the scores and weightage for shortlisted vendors against each parameter were finalized. A comparison scorecard was prepared after evaluating all the vendors and each vendor was placed in the DIVE matrix based on their product offering and business strategy scores.

This report is instrumental in helping the stakeholders, such as application control vendors, system integrators, value-added resellers, and technology partners, to make business decisions on application control solution deployments.

The report covers the comprehensive study of key application control vendors, including Symantec Corporation, Intel Security (McAfee), Trend Micro, Inc., CyberArk Software Ltd., Carbon Black, Inc., Digital Guardian, Check Point Software Technologies Ltd., LANDESK Software (AppSense), Thycotic (Arellia), and HEAT Software USA Ltd., (Lumension Security, Inc.).

Exteneded Description

In today’s technology environment, cyber threats and vulnerabilities have become a boardroom discussion in organizations across the globe. The need to mitigate IT security risks and protect data, applications, and various endpoints against threats are still the primary goal of organizations. Application control refers to the security of endpoint applications to safeguard them against advanced persistent threats (APTs) and targeted attacks.

Application control is defined in the report as the solution that blocks the unwanted and unauthorized applications from executing on various enterprise endpoints such as desktops, smartphones, servers, Point-of-Sale (POS) systems, and other fixed function devices.

The need to enforce enterprise-wide application usage and data security policies has fueled the growth of application control solutions within the organizations. In the era of rapid adoption of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trends among organizations, application control and data security is of utmost importance. The acceptable use policy has contributed to BYOD success with application control and security.
