How to deploy Software Restriction Policy GPO

Software Restriction Policy using Group Policy

Software restriction policy is used to restrict the access of the newly installed programs or pre-installed windows based programs. Consider an example of call center, if an organization hires a person for the particular process and he/she is  expected to use only certain set of applications and not allowed to access other programs. In that case, organization can deploy the software restriction policy. It would restrict all the softwares that user is not allowed to access.

As we already learned about Group Policies and procedure to remotely install software on client computers. Group policy is a combination of settings through which we can allow or restrict users to access software, remotely install application, restrict applications and programs, etc. Through Group Policy Management Console, we can manage existing Group Policy Objects (GPO) and create new GPO.
