About trusting applications

To help provide security for your computers, the firewall blocks traffic from unrecognised applications on your computers. However, applications commonly used in your organization may be blocked, thus preventing users from performing their everyday tasks.

You can trust these applications, so that they can communicate through the firewall. Trusted applications are allowed full and unconditional access to the network and the internet.

Note For greater security, you can apply one or more application rules to specify the conditions under which the application can run. For information on how to do this, see Create an application rule from a firewall policy.
