support Avecto Defendpoint elevation

We would like ClearCase to be supported with Avecto Defendpoint software, which is an endpoint security software that offers privilege management, application control and sandboxing to help protect the operating system and user data from unknown cyber threats. For us, it is a mandate that Avecto be installed on all Windows domain clients. Although not supported by IBM, we have used Avecto on Windows 7 successfully for years. Starting with Windows 10, where we have also introduced UAC, any Avecto elevated process for a domain account not in the local Administrators group cannot access MVFS content. Furthermore, the ClearCase integration in Visual Studio does not work (i.e., crashes) if Visual Studio has been elevated by Avecto, regardless of the underlying view type. Adding domain users to the local Administrators group works around these problems, but that defeats the main purpose of using Avecto. We would like to find a way to use ClearCase, Visual Studio and Avecto Defendpoint together on Windows 10.
