- Operating System
Furthermore, you can block many vulnerable executables from Windows folder without breaking Windows Updates and system scheduled tasks, because they are usually blocked by SRP only as standard user and allowed to run with higher rights.
Generally SRP configuration is simpler from WD Application Control.
SRP can be applied in Enterprises networks, but to get the similar security level as in the case of WD Application Control, SRP has to be very restrictive, so less usable.
Why nobody talks about more important factor, that most home users are "click happy" and don't pay attention to any security alerts and if some comes up or "in their face" like Smartscreen alert, they just click yes to get it faster out of their way without reading any information what its for. If family have no one to ask computer help, they have to call someone tech like. And most people 50+ who didn't born with tablets and pc's in their hands, will not do manual way seeking for problem help in Google or Malwaretips example. I can set SRP for my other 5+ family windows systems, but if I wasn't there for them, default-deny would NOT be the best security solution.
SRP is best for Business/corp oriented systems where employes are not allowed to install additional programms and just use work oriented applications.

- Home - when computers can be supervised by an experienced user.
