Windows IT Pro Rates PowerBroker Desktop 4 out of 5 Stars

Posted June 1, 2012    Peter McCalister

Windows IT Pro has published its review of PowerBroker Desktops, Windows Edition. The review is quite favorable and gave PowerBroker Desktop a 4 out of 5 star rating, saying PowerBroker Desktops is an easier way to protect users’ computers. An excerpt below:

“PowerBroker does the heavy lifting for you. Instead of having to relax NTFS or registry security for each application that would normally require local administrator privileges, PowerBroker elevates the user’s privileges for just that application. The GPMC integration is super convenient…I’m giving PowerBroker 4 stars out of 5.” Read the entire review on Windows IT Pro here.
