A recent survey conducted by BeyondTrust (, a developer and marketer of least privilege management software, reveals that 92% of critical vulnerabilities reported by Microsoft could have been prevented simply by removing administrator rights from Windows users. Also, the survey points out, removing administrator rights helps companies protect themselves and their computers against 94% of Microsoft Office, 89% of Microsoft Internet Explorer, and 53% of Windows vulnerabilities. Given the prevalence of Microsoft software in today’s corporate environment, these numbers should give any administrator pause.
