Moving To A Least Privileges Environment: A Step By Step Project Plan - Chapter 1: What It Takes To Successfully Implement Least Privileges
There are a number of benefits to companies when implementing a privilege management solution. When users do not have local administrator rights, they are less likely to make changes that destabilize the system and increase support costs. Systems that are locked down so that the local user does not have admin right are less susceptible to malware. Organizations are able to better control the software that is running on locked down endpoints and this provides operational consistency as well as improved endpoint security.
