Best practices for client security requires administrators to run users with the least privileges necessary to get their jobs done. But some applications, ActiveX controls, and application updaters require administrator rights, preventing least privilege user practices. Native tools lack application level granularity.
If one application needs administrative rights, you have to run the user as an administrator. Privilege Authority provides the granularity native tools lack. Now, run users with the least privileges possible, and elevate applications and ActiveX controls only when needed.
