What is Application Control 

The Application Control component logs the actions performed by applications in the system, and manages the applications' activities, based on which group they belong to. A set of rules is defined for each group of applications. These rules manage applications' access to various resources.

Two category of resources - Operating system and Identity data - are defined in Kaspersky Internet Security 2012.

When an application tries to get access to any system resources which belong to this category, Application Control checks the rules defined by Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 for this program and in accordance with the pre-defined rules Application control allows, prompts the user or blocks the application.
