group or time of day

Application Control makes it simple to selectively allow, block, or restrict access to applications based on a user’s department, job function, and time of day, and generate reports on usage.

Makes acceptable use
policy enforcement easy

Establish acceptable use policies for users and groups by category, application, and application sub-function for maximum flexibility. Enforcing acceptable use policies has never been easier.

Application Control In Action

Intuitive and Effective
Exercise fine-grained control over more than 1,800 applications, organized by category. Application Control lets you drill down from application category ("P2P") to application name ("Facebook") and down to application function ("Facebook Chat"). Find out more about the 1800+ applications included in the product by default.

Signatures...and then Some
Sophisticated Behavioral Analysis works overtime, regardless of destination address or L7 protocol, to ensure applications that exhibit certain patterns of behavior don't escape the gaze of Application Control — including encrypted applications that are specifically designed to bypass ordinary security measures.

Dynamic Updates
New applications and new versions are released constantly. Application Control stays current with regular application signature updates.

Reporting Out of the Box
Real-time reporting and monitoring are included. That means no additional software to buy in order to have complete visibility into network activity.
