Watch more videos

In this video, you will use application control to track applications on your network and enhance security by restricting certain applications.

The FortiGate database categorizes applications by Category, Technology, Popularity and Risk. In this example, you will block BitTorrent, a high risk file sharing application that is part of the peer to peer category. You will also block access to the most popular application, YouTube.

The recipe for this video is available here.
