ScriptLogic has also launched the Privilege Authority Community Forum, where Privilege Authority users can exchange rules that allow for certain end user configuration changes. Some rules are already available providing the ability for end users to access system properties, run iTunes® and BlackBerry® Desktop installers, install an Adobe® Flash® Player after download, and run Adobe® Reader®. More than 5,000 IT administrators downloaded Privilege Authority in the 24 hours following availability.
In addition to elevation rules, which are created by a template wizard, Privilege Authority also features:
- Common Rules: Privilege Authority ships with several pre-configured common rules that are already designed to handle the most common elevation requirements in organizations today.
- Automatic update of rules: Privilege Authority regularly checks the Privilege Authority Community Forum for updated common rules and downloads new rules when they are available.
