Looking for advice on App-id configuration

L0 Member

Looking through the white papers and documentation, I didn't really find much as to a recommendation on how to tackle the task of app-id configuration as a whole. Have any of you found any documentation that was helpful in this area? One approach I was considering was running a report to identify the most widely used applications within our organization and initially focusing on those that need to be addressed right away. But I can only imagine that eventually a decision point will have to be made on every app-id and future additions PA decides to make. I was also thinking I almost need to create some type of matrix that identifies all of the standardized applications App-id addresses along with all the controls and a decision point on if that control is turned on or not. What approach did you and your organization use to tackle App-id configuration? Rather than re-inventing the wheel, I thought I would ask for advice from my peers that have already gone through this process.

Starting from ACC will be good way to construct a secure way.

If you can do best is "positive security" model as you know.That is not possible for every environment but a best practice for me.

Over an implicity deny, only allow what app you need.And for policy rules , service option - application default.

This will take some time, but after then most secure.

Alternatively, if you can't do that, you should use app. filters by category and also it is a dynamic solution.

After that you should add any harmful apps to a group and write a deny rule for both.
