Anyone who has ever worked in the IT support field knows that the help desk analyst's job is made much tougher if he or she doesn't know which software the user has installed. This has been a problem since the early days of personal computing. Unbeknownst to IT, employees install new programs on their PCs, and that can complicate troubleshooting efforts when problems arise.


All this boils down to a simple axiom: organizations want to run the apps they want, and not run the apps they don't want. Sounds simple, but it can be surprisingly challenging in the real world. One of the tools Microsoft has given Active Directory administrators to help in this regard, Software Restriction Policies (SRPs), has been re-engineered in Windows 7 as AppLocker. This white paper introduces you to AppLocker and makes a few key points about how it differs from earlier software restriction technologies.
