Using Application Control
The Management Console provides direct access to system management, configuration, file authorization, reporting, and logging functions.
The Management Console allows the user to communicate with an Application Server to send and retrieve file authorization data from the database. The data is sent from the server to a client, thereby establishing application control on the client. The Management Console provides direct access to system management, configuration, file authorization, reporting, and logging functions.
