The problem most companies are still facing is that users need to be local administrators, typically to install software or to run legacy applications. To totally avoid this need, IT would have to script every piece of software any user may need - or alternatively, IT would have to manually install software for all users. Both are extremely time consuming and therefore the pragmatic solution is often to let users be local administrators and let User Account Control (UAC) handle it. Although UAC along with protective software does prevent most viruses, malware and ransomware being installed, attacks happen anyway. Admin By Request can help!
