quick clarification on object name and program name

Can someone give me a quick refresher on Object Name vs Program Name?  Is it Object called the Program Name, or Program calls up the Object Name?  Example output from my query:

Program   NameObject NameEvent Name
C:\Windows\System32\services.exeC:\Windows\System32\dns.exeEXECUTION_DENIED

Re: quick clarification on object name and program name

I reached out to my McAfee Solidcore expert and this is what he told me.  Just an FYI for anyone else out there...

In your example the program is what called the object. It’s the object that is related to the event name. In this case, dns.exe was denied from running.

Re: quick clarification on object name and program name

This can change depending on the type of event. In the case you posted here were an executable is denied permissions to run the log file will show the process that tried to launch the exe and the path to the exe.
