ENS - Block a program and custom popup ?


I would like to block a specific program (like TOR), this program can be anywhere on the system and hash is often changing.

To block it I find Access Protection is perfect for the job, but I would like to create a POPUP to the user when the Access Protection block this program to inform the user that this program is not allowed. (So they stop calling the support helpdesk).

How can I achieve that with McAfee ENS ?

Re: ENS - Block a program and custom popup ?

Hi @jmcg ,

Thankyou for reaching us on community.

Unfortunately, ENS Access protection does not have this feature to add a custom popup.

Another way you can avoid these kind of files is my adding the filename in ENS treat prevention policy under potentially unwanted program. so that tor.exe will be deleted the next time it is accessed.

Steps :

1. Log in to  EPO -> policy catalog.

2. Endpoint security Threat prevention -> Options ->

3. Select the policy that you would like to edit.

4. Scroll down to "Potentially Unwanted Program Detections".

5. click "add".

6. Enter the file name. example : tor.exe -> click save

7. save the policy -> enforce the changes to the client machine with a wakeup agent call or "collect and send props".


I hope you find this helpful!
