Taking Least Privilege to the Max

...One of my favorite improvements on user access control in all current versions of Windows is BeyontTrust Privilege Manager, a program that is still remarkably alone in providing certain powerful security features for Windows.

User access control is all about setting the privileges for users when accessing certain resources. The heart of the problem being discussed by Symantec is that when you set a general level for a user, and presumably the philosophy these days is that you set the user to have a limited set of rights, you are inevitably going to misestimate what they need for particular tasks.
