There should be more reports available on different subjects. There is a set of predefined Dimension reports but there needs to be more available on aspects like security and Wi-Fi.

They could expand the amount of applications that are on the list, but it's pretty intensive anyway, so it's pretty good.

There is no message displayed for the user on the desktop informing them that access to a web page has been blocked by Application Control. Because of this, the administrator has to check the logs to find out. It would be better if the user could call the administrator and explain that the page has been blocked by Application Control, and give the details, like the category and the reason, at that time. In the Web Blocker module, you can define a message that is sent to the user on their browser.

The solution needs to improve the interface. I'm not able to easily find things using it. In the future, it would be nice if they could offer deadlock with an addition of desk geolocation.
