In this video, you will learn how to use Application Control to block web traffic from devices running Windows operating systems in the NT5 category, including Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, and virtual machines of these OSs.
When an operating system is no longer supported, it becomes a threat to the network because newly discovered exploits will never be patched. Using the FortiGate unit’s Application Control, you can restrict these computers from accessing external resources and putting the network at risk.
This recipe only blocks web traffic from NT5 devices. It does not prevent them from connecting to the network, but the logs generated by this recipe can be used to identify devices so they can be blocked completely.
The recipe for this video is available here.
