Block Skype File Transfer

Hi All,


We want to block skype file transfer from our users. Checking on the application-list, I can only see Skype and Skype-probe.
Here are my questions:

1. Is there a future plan to add additional skype sub-applications (skype-video-call, skype-file-transfer, etc.)?

2. Is there a work-around to block skype file transfer?


Thanks and regards,

I'm suprised there aren't more controls around what I would think is a pretty widely used service.

If application uses proprietary encryption then there is nothing Palo can do to look deeper into it.

Unless application behaviour changes I don't think there is going to be better control over those apps.
