application blocker / block infections????

  • OK. This may be a strange question, but has anyone used the application blocker in Kaseya (under the Audit Tab) as a means to block infections?

    I just recently used it to block “personal antivirus” on a machine while I cleaned it with an antivirus. It made the cleanup process go much faster, and I didn’t even have to boot into safe mode.

    Now I'm thinking maybe I should block the illegitimate application on all machines, just in case. And of course add many more……..

    What do you think; good idea?

  • It's hard use it to block infections as they tend to randomize the filenames. However, it is good for blocking other non-business related applications.
