How to deploy Potentially Unwanted Application protection with Microsoft Configuration Manager

SECPotentially Unwanted Application (PUA) is a threat classification based on reputation and research-driven identification. Most commonly, these PUAs are unwanted applications that come bundled with some other application installer. With Microsoft System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection and Configuration Manager, you can protect your users from PUAs by simply deploying an antimalware policy in your Configuration Manager environment. The protection policy setting is disabled by default, however once enabled, this feature will block PUAs at download and install time. You can also exclude specific files or folders to meet the specific needs of your environment.

For details on how to enable PUA protection, see the following documentation in our TechNet Library:
