Hi everybody.
I will tell you how to block exe files via Application and Device Policy rule.
I choice block exe files via file fingerprint. Because users can change exe names but cannot change file fingerprint.
Best Regards.

I use second way. yes you rigth there is no ip address but i copy the exe name and search it from "Search for applications" than i can find the user. This is o easy way but i did it like this.
I have 500 clients I can handle them. But I am not sure for more clients.

Hello rajagobal,
First of all please use forum for question. Because you can access more people :)
And are you sure your clients in test group use win32zip.exe before.

Best Regards.
