  • Good Day, 

    Wondering if there is anywhere which would list the reasoning of an item being added to the list?
    I know the blanket, notice that it is deemed some level of control is deemed necessary for these applications bit on a quick review of the list I see a Security Camera management system, and a Microsoft System Tool.

    Just curious on the potential risk behind these apps versus some other if there is a more in depth description of the concern anywhere?
