Control and Block More than 1,800 Web 2.0 and Business Applications

Application Control from WatchGuard allows you to block, allow and report on Application usage on your network. For example, you can block applications like YouTube, Skype and QQ 24/7 or only during certain hours. Additionally, you also have the ability to provide access to departments or individuals who require access to business-critical applications like Facebook or Twitter for the marketing department.

Application Control makes it simple to create and enforce acceptable use policies at your company. With Application Control, you can selectively allow, block, or restrict access to applications based on a user’s department, job function, and time of day. Once you establish your policy, Application Control allows you to see in real-time what’s being accessed on your network and by whom. You can use this information to demonstrate compliance, evaluate employee need, and refine acceptable use policies.
