Policy Examples

To restrict employees from using non-work related applications, you can set the control policies as follows:

1.Prohibited by application name

Administrator can block application usage by directly adding the name of the application, such as msn.exe. This policy is applied by string matching. If user changes the application name to msn123.exe, this policy will be invalid. To avoid this, administrator can set the second control policy.

2.Prohibited by application classes

Administrator can categorize all prohibited applications and put them into an application class, and then select that application class to block. In this way, even if the user changes the application name, as long as the program itself does not change, this policy remains in effect.

Warning: Block all applications will result in the disabled of most processes. In order to avoid potential losses, please set the policy cautiously.
