How to best block portable apps?

L0 Member

Has anyone successfully implemented in their environment? Do you do it by BIOC Restrictions, using digital signatures, file path or executable name?

Hi @Kahlil 


Thank you for writing to live community!

You may block a file/application from running on any of your endpoints in either way i.e. 

1. By adding the associated hash to the block list but with new version of application, hash might change and thus application will not be blocked as application Hash would need to be updated.

2. By using BIOC restrictions and in BIOC restrictions to adapt with Hash change you may use the Digital Signature or Vendor Signature. You may refer to this thread for more details.  

 

Hope this helps!
