Have you considered the Application and Control Device policies in SEP - these can block as well all that you require and may be easier to implement than with SNAC:


How to block all Wireless traffic when an Ethernet interface is active using Symantec Endpoint Protection



How to use Symantec Endpoint Protection to block or log legitimate but unauthorized software usage

Thank you very much SebastianZ, this type of solution kind of similar to me,

but i need a solution exactly by SNAC... I wil be grateful to you if you could find any article about this scenario, or generate your own solution :)

Well application execution is not exactly what SNAC is meant for - some reference:

The Symantec Network Access Control client evaluates whether a computer is properly protected and compliant before it is allowed to connect to the corporate network.

The Symantec Network Access Control client validates and enforces policy compliance for the computers that try to connect to the network. This validation and enforcement process begins before the computer connects to the network and continues throughout the duration of the connection.

However.... under the Host Integrity templates -> HI Sample Toolkits you should be able to find one template for termination of applications with certain fingerprint - maybe this can help you a bit. Still searching if I can find any other preconfigured templates...

You are using SNAC with SEPM or with Enforcer?

Everything is done using the HI policy you can check the various options under the policy page

3. you would need tofind what games you want to block, There is no technology to search and block games installed or standalone.(portable exe's, scr files, DOCX or  XLSX embedded games, flash games etc. )
