ENS is more like antivirus/malware checker/preventer.

Application Control is whitelisting 

 

These are two different technologies.. Yes ENS Memory Protection is similar to application control but the question you really need to ask is what are you trying to accomplish.

 

1. Only scanning and preventing viruses 

or 

2. Locking down the computer to only applications you want to allow and make changes.

The USP of Application and Chnage control is whitelisting as mentioned by my friend in first response.

You can control the execution of  files based on its file type, checksum and many more parameters.

You can also track the changes made to files residing on your system.

Also control the installation of packages, and track them.
