Policy to block the access of Microsoft Store through Cortex XDR

L1 Bithead

Hello,

i would like to know if there is a way to block access to microsoft store through Cortex XDR , i know there are many way to reach this goal such as GPO. but i would like to use Cortex XDR  . because it will be harder to manage (remote) out of network users unlike cortex which can be forced almost instantly.

 

any help will be highly appreciated.

Dear @AmmarBahasan

 

Hope you are doing well. From the query I understand that you would like to block Microsoft Store using Cortex XDR. You can try achieving this by using exception profile. Create an exception profile and enable executable files in block mode and then add *\WinStore.App.exe in file and folder block list. Create the exception profile. 

Once done please go to the policy rule and assign this exception profile to the endpoints you want to restrict use of Microsoft store on. Once done the end users shall be able to open the Microsoft store, however, is shall not load if the policy is assigned properly. Thank you.
