This paper discusses the limitations of security by denying users administrative access to their systems, and highlights how cybercriminals can achieve their goals without administrative access.
This white paper touches on the following:
- Limiting users' privileges on end-points should not be seen as a replacement for vulnerability management and expedited patching of software;
- Anti-virus or other protection technologies can't replace vulnerability management and expedited patching of software;
- Effective patch management is an absolute must to reduce the window of exposure and eliminate the root cause of potential compromise.
