It has never been easier to decide who, what, when, where, why and how applications are used on your network. Application Control makes it simple to create and enforce acceptable use policies at your company. With Application Control, you can selectively allow, block, or restrict access to applications based on a user's department, job function, and time of day.
Today, new Internet and social media applications are a common source of vulnerabilities and attacks. IT pros are faced with the challenge of managing or controlling a vast array of web applications without hindering productivity. Most application traffic is now web-based over port 80 or port 443. Adding to this challenge, some applications also use evasive techniques like encryption or they jump around non-standard ports. And to complicate matters, the distinction between "web site" and "web application" is tenuous at best. No longer does a traditional firewall with only port and protocol numbers suffice; the firewall administrator needs to set granular controls by application. The business needs to understand and control which applications employees use.
Application visibility and control is critical to the health of your network and your business. Learn how Application Control from WatchGuard makes enforcing acceptable use policies simple.
