Real User
Offers a sense of security that any malicious malware is going to be blocked

What is our primary use case?

My primary use case for this solution is to have an application wide listing solution. It's primarily to prevent unauthorized or unapproved applications from running on a user location.

Pros and Cons

  • "If any malicious activity, like VAT viruses, anything RNE, ZOD malware, or something similar, comes in we know that unless we approve it, it's going to be blocked."
  • "Another issue is that even sometimes if you approve, for example, Adobe as a publisher, you say any product or anything that's from Adobe has to run. It generally runs, but especially in a large environment and with a lot of users, sometimes, due to some certification validation issues or some other issue, it might stop the process from running. Genuine processes like Adobe and Chrome can get blocked. so that needs to be improved."

What other advice do I have?

You need the technical skills, the know-how, and also you have to be on the product. You might lose a lot of time if genuine files are blocked. Look at the problem, look at the log, then actually try to solve it for users. I would rate this solution a seven and a half out of ten.
