Access control

In a policy, you can define these access control features:
  • Application visibility and control (AVC). Allows your organization to control access to web applications. You can assign a policy action to define default policy behavior, categories, category operations, applications, and any application operations. These actions are performed on the policy's Access Control > AUP & Shadow IT tab. For more information, see Application visibility and control.
  • Acceptable use policy (AUP). Allows your organization to control access to websites based on categories. Like AVC, you configure AUP in the Access Control > AUP & Shadow IT tab. For more information, see Acceptable use policy.
  • Data loss prevention (DLP). Allows your organization to identify and block sensitive or confidential data that's uploaded to websites on the Internet. DLP scans data that’s posted over an HTTP or HTTPS connection. For more information, see Data loss prevention.
  • Access by File Type. Allows you to block or monitor the download or upload of specific file types. For more information, see Access by file type.
