2 Part question, the upload and learn application

Created: 13 Feb 2013 • Updated: 13 Feb 2013 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

...why do we need it, what does it do?

Can we get Symantec EP to tell us if clients are running some applications that they shouldn't be, things such as P2P? (BitTorrent)?

Basically you can create firwall rules to control applications using this feature

Yes, it would show every application that runs on a PC

These may help:

Monitoring the applications and services that run on client computers

Taking this a step further. You know how exceptions are in place, can the same be done for things you want to bock, say, I want SEP to catch BitTorrent.exe

You would need to use the Application and Device Control policy for this.

The only thing you could do is create a firewall rule to block traffic to/from bittorrent.exe
