Synchronized Application Control overview

Synchronized Application Control detects application traffic in your network and automatically categorizes known applications. You can categorize and rename unknown applications.

You can control application traffic based on that information. Interactive application reporting provides deep insight into network traffic.

Clean up application database: Sophos Firewall can automatically clear applications detected before a certain time period. It then runs a daily check for these applications and deletes them in batches of 100 every five minutes. Applications are also deleted from application filter policies if they were added individually.

To use this feature, register this firewall with Sophos Central.


The domain created on Sophos Firewall must be the same as the domain selected on the endpoint.
