How to Enable Application Control

  • Last updated on

Application Control expands the scope of the firewall engine to include application type as a matching criteria. If an access rule matches that Application Control is enabled for, the application ruleset is processed from top to bottom and the action set in the first matching application rule is executed (block or deny). Application detection for applications using SSL-encrypted connections allow for more granular control when SSL Interception is enabled. Application Control is currently limited to IPv4. Application definition updates for managed Barracuda NextGen F-Series Firewalls are distributed via the Control Center. Phion legacy-licensed Control Centers do not support updating application definitions via Energize Updates.
