Blocking a program from connecting to the Internet

Online Help

In Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition, the cloud agent detects the well-known programs running on each endpoint and adds the programs to an organization's database. The Smart Firewall allows these programs to run safely. However, an administrator can prevent the discovered programs from connecting to the Internet if an organization's security policy prohibits it.
