Doubt about Software Policy Restriction RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody.

    I'm with a doubt about software restriction policies. One of my clients asked for a SRP that allows users to remove programs but doesn't allow them to install. As far as i know, that's not possible with the resources offered by Windows Server. They're using W2K8 R2 SP1.

    If i'm correct about this request  anybody knows a third-party tool that delivers this kind of granularity?

  • You are going to need to purchase a third party product that performs WhiteListing.  Microsoft does ok on 2012, but I would recommend a third party product, the name slips me but there is a product out there that works from a centralized point of view to control a group of devices from a central locations.

    Check out Bit9, IIRC they are the vendor I was thinking of.
