Allow Only Google-Chrome Update and Block all other google related pages

L1 Bithead

Hi Team,

 

The Google and Google related products/pages are completely restricted at our environment.

We only allow a specific destinations from our internal Application servers.

To remediate the vulnerability risks, we are in need of updating the google-chrome periodically.

 

Could we get an inputs in allowing the google-chrome updates alone, and block all remaining as it is before.

 

Thanks,
SPM

Hello,
 
There would need to be an APP-ID for that and to my knowledge, there isn't one for Chrome updates.
You can take a look at Applipedia yourself here - https://applipedia.paloaltonetworks.com
You might need to give up Chrome and use another browser, such as Firefox, for which there is na APP-ID for updates - firefox-update

There is something called google-update. Unsure if that would help us on this requirement.

 

Also, wondering if we could get any whitelisted URLs specific to google update alone.

Hi @Muruganandham.SP 

If your company is that restrictive, why not cut it all off and only update the environment with Chrome from something like SCCM?

 

Otherwise, check out this article:

Hope this helps.

@RobertShawver  Yes, we had this discussed internally. The present idea here is to execute it via firewall and to find all the possible available solutions in PAN-FW.
