Introduction

Application-level security attacks, such as file system corruption, registry corruption, spyware, and keylogging, pose a serious threat to mission critical business operations. Altiris Application Control Solution helps you manage this risk by letting you control the software applications in your Altiris environment.

For example, using Application Control Solution, you can create policies to automatically inventory the software packages or systems in your environment. You can also protect your company's data from malicious behavior by automatically encrypting documents, controlling an application's access to specific network locations, and preventing applications from installing Windows API hooks.

What's changed in this release

The following items were changed in this release:

  • The Application Control service name changed from Altiris Application Control to Arellia Application Control.
  • The File Inventory Agent package was consolidated with the Application Control Agent installation package.

    The File Inventory agent was embedded into the Application Control Agent installation package, and it is automatically installed or upgraded whenever the agent is installed. The independent File Inventory Agent package and related software delivery policies were removed to reduce confusion as to whether the File Inventory Agent needs to be rolled out independently of the other agent.
