Blocking of Application from Download

Copper Contributor

Hello All,


We want to restrict all the users from downloading the applications while they are connected to Office Network (remote or office) or not connected to office network.  They shouldn't able to download the specific application only. we want to deploy for Windows 10 only.

Hello @g461571,


Isn't it better to use a Firewall for that? 

Thank you for the response, Just to clarify you mean Defender Firewall? In our environment Firewall is not configured on endpoints. So if we configure will it work when user connected to office network and non-office network.
I meant corporate network firewall. Because when users are in a corporate network or connected to the corporate network via VPN they are working behind the corporate network firewall.

If you configure Defender Firewall you will have three options. Domain Network, Private Network, and Corporate Network. Block downloading applications for Domain Network and leave it for Private and Corporate.
