      • Create a security rule to 'deny' ncaa2018-mml.
  2. Enforce QoS policing (permit the NCAA March Madness Live application but rate limit the video streams):
      • Create a security rule to 'allow' ncaa2018-mml and ncaa2018-video applications.
      • Create a QoS policy for ncaa2018-video.                                                              
  3. Gain visibility into the usage of March Madness Live in your traffic mix:
      • When you import the custom-defined applications to your firewall and commit, make sure the traffic is 'allowed' by the security policies.
