Application Control is a subscription for WatchGuard XTM appliances that enables policy-based monitoring, tracking, and blocking of over 1,800 web 2.0 and business applications, including Skype, Facebook, YouTube, and many more. It relies on behavioral techniques and over 2,500 signatures to deliver enhanced security, bandwidth protection, and greater productivity.
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. Once you establish your policy, Application Control allows you to see in real-time what's being accessed on your network and by whom. You can use this information to demonstrate compliance, evaluate employee need, and refine acceptable use policies.
