Release update: The Planned release of new applications for the Application Control list has been slightly delayed to April 6th, 2021.
Application control is a Sophos security feature that lets you detect and block applications which are not a security threat, but that you may decide are unsuitable for use in the office. It is available in both Central and Enterprise Console managed environments.
Controlled applications are programs, such as VoIP, IM, P2P and games, that can be blocked or allowed for different groups of computers, depending on productivity or security concerns. The List of applications that have been identified as warranting some control is updated regularly by Sophos. This is to inform you of new applications being added to the list and may include existing applications that have undergone an update.
The following have been identified as applications that would benefit from some level of control and will be added to the existing list.
