You can block access to cloud services that you do not want users to access. You can also allow access to cloud services that were previously blocked.

Among other considerations, you may want to take the risk level into account when deciding whether to block access to a certain service.

You can block or allow access to cloud services for a security policy or profile.

There are two ways to block access to unwanted cloud services:

  • By using the Cloud Discovery widget.

    In this case, you can block access to the services one by one.

  • In the properties of the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows policy.

    In this case, you can block access to the services one by one or block an entire category at once.

    For details on how to enable the Cloud Discovery feature in the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows policy properties, refer to the Cloud Discovery section of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows Help.

To block or allow access to a cloud service by using the widget:

  1. Open the Cloud Discovery widget, and then select the required cloud service.
  2. In the Top 10 devices that use the service pane, find the security policy or profile for which you want to block or allow the service.
  3. On the required line, in the Access status in policy or profile column, do any of the following:
    • To block the service, select Blocked in the drop-down list.
    • To allow the service, select Allowed in the drop-down list.
  4. Click the Save button.

Access to the selected service is blocked or allowed for the security policy or profile.
