Deprecated Categories in Application Control
Solution

The following Application Control categories were deprecated (to have less options and more consistency in the category assignment).

All applications assigned to a deprecated category will be assigned a new category, based on the suggested replacement.

Prior to such changes a notification will be sent via the Application Control database update newsletter. It is recommended to register to get the most up to date information about Application Control detection updates.

Once a category is deprecated, it will not be available in the Application Control picker. Existing rules that use the deprecated categories will continue to function and match as before.

It is recommended to review the Application & URL Filtering policy, and modify the rules accordingly (remove the deprecated categories and replace them with the relevant supported categories).

Enter the string to filter this table:
