Standard Software on Desktop Builds
Note: Users will not have local administrative rights to desktop and laptop computers. End users’ administrator rights can be used by unauthorized users, hackers, and malware to compromise computer systems. For example, administrator rights can be used to alter a standard desktop image, change security settings, or install unauthorized software. Most malware and spyware requires administrator rights in order to install. By removing administrator rights from users and granting only the minimum privileges necessary for the performance of an authorized task, we will limit the damage that can result from a security breach or malicious user.
