About Application Control

The Application Control component monitors user attempts to start applications and regulates the startup of applications by using Application Control rules.

Startup of applications whose settings do not match any of the Application Control rules is regulated by the selected operating mode of the component. Black List mode is selected by default. This mode allows any user to start any application.

All user attempts to start applications are logged in reports.

By default, Application Control operates in Black List mode. This component allows all users to start all applications. When a user attempts to start an application that is blocked by Application Control rules, Kaspersky Endpoint Security blocks this application from starting (if the Block action is selected) or saves information about the application startup in a report (if the Notify action is selected).
