Case 1: Application Elevation
Enabling standard users to run specific applications that would normally require administrator rights
Assume that a user in your department would be usually running a list of applications and processes that would require administrator rights to install, run, and update. When local administrator rights are removed and the user is made a standard user, the applications cannot be run.
Securden enables the user (with just standard user rights) to run all those applications without any hassles.
Securden administrator can create a policy marking the list of applications as trusted and permit the user to run those applications on a specific computer or multiple computers. The Securden agent installed on the end-user machine takes care of elevating the applications for that standard user.
The user can use/run the applications in one of the three ways:
- Context Menu (Right-click the application and ‘Run with Securden privilege’)
- Using Run Command (Command Prompt with prefixing the word ‘secudo’)
- Double-clicking the Application (This option will be available only if the administrator has decided to allow)
While local administrator rights stand removed, user experience is not compromised and productivity is not impacted.
