E.g. :- Block Yahoo messenger for User1.
Application Control module subscribed
2. Go to Tools à Classes Management à Application to select the application that you want to block for User1.
Endpoint Data Protection Agent scans the applications running on the user’s machine, and sends it to the Server. The Endpoint Data Protection Server would then group it all in ‘Unclassified’ Class. From there we can move applications to custom class. Unclassified is a default class.
Click on unclassified class, and select the applications ‘Yahoo’ to be blocked for User1, and move them to separate class i.e. Yahoo.
Customized Message [Not allowed]
This way to block application is called the ‘STRING’. In the Application Setting windows, click the button to input the application name directly.
For E.g. YahooMessenger.exe
If the user changes the application name to YahooMessenger123.exe the policy is not effective anymore because the input only matches with a string. To avoid this problem, use the earlier method of application class.
If we select whole network here then this policy will be applicable to all the users.
2. Navigate to Basic policy in Main menu and click on ‘Application’, and then click on ADD icon to create a new policy as shown above.
3. Configure the Application Control Policy with the following values
4. Save this policy.
When user will try to access Yahoo application warning message will be displayed on user PC.
