Paul Cooke took time out to provide a tour and demo of AppLocker.
AppLocker is a new feature in Windows7 that allows you to manage what applications are allowed to run on a managed machine with multiple techniques, including white listing and black listing applications. It goes way beyond what is available today using Software Restriction Policies.
One of the slick features is the ability to use a machine as a reference – configure a machine with just the apps you want users to run, and AppLocker will automatically build a policy from that machine you can deploy across your org. Very Cool.
