The following have been identified as applications that would benefit from some level of control and will be added to the existing list. 

Note: These applications will be automatically blocked for customers who have enabled the following optional setting in their Application Control policy for their Sophos Central:

  • Sophos Central: New applications added to this category by Sophos

If you don’t want new applications to be automatically blocked the above setting can be disabled.

Sophos will be releasing Application Control in two different parts. The latest released applications would be visible in Central, 24 to 48 hours prior to the identity release. Therefore, customers are requested to wait 24 to 48 hours to Allow/Block most recently released applications in Central.
