You can use executable files from selected devices as a template of executable files that you want to allow or block. Based on executable files from selected devices, you can create an application category and use it in the Application Control component configuration.

To create application category that includes executable files from selected devices:

  1. In the main menu, go to Operations → Third-party applications → Application categories.

    The page with a list of application categories is displayed.

  2. Click the Add button.

    The New category wizard starts. Proceed through the wizard by using the Next button.

  3. On the Select category creation method page of the wizard, specify the category name and select the Category that includes executable files from selected devices. These executable files are processed automatically and their metrics are added to the category option.
  4. Click Add.
  5. In the window that opens, select a device or devices whose executable files will be used to create the application category.
  6. Specify the following settings:
    • Hash value computing algorithm
    • Synchronize data with Administration Server repository
    • File type
    • Folders

When the wizard finishes, the application category is created. It is displayed in the list of application categories. You can use the created application category when you configure Application Control.
