Application Control prevents applications from performing actions that may be dangerous for the operating system and controls access to operating system resources and your personal data.
Application Control tracks actions performed in the operating system by applications installed on the computer and regulates them based on rules. These rules restrict suspicious activity of applications, including access by applications to protected resources, such as files and folders, registry keys, and network addresses.
On 64-bit operating systems, applications' rights for the following actions cannot be configured:
On 64-bit Microsoft Windows 8, applications' rights for the following actions cannot be configured:
Applications' network activity is controlled by the Firewall component.
When an application is started on the computer for the first time, Application Control checks the safety of the application and assigns it to a group (Trusted, Untrusted, High Restricted, or Low Restricted). The group defines the rules that Kaspersky Internet Security applies for controlling the activity of the application.
Kaspersky Internet Security assigns applications to trust groups (Trusted, Untrusted, High Restricted, or Low Restricted) only if Application Control or Firewall is enabled, and also when both these components are enabled. If both these components are disabled, the functionality that assigns applications to trust groups does not work.
You can edit application control rules manually.Page top
