MS Update application being recognized as ssl

L2 Linker

Hi Experts

I'm looking for an assistance where ms-update is being recognized as ssl and getting denied. We've allowed the web-browsing and ssl to allow the dependency applications as well on the same rule. Port is being identified as TCP/8531 but the application is marked as ssl. Firewalls are running 9.1.6

Any suggestions please. Thanks in advance.
