Should IT/Security managers attempt to utilize coarse control capabilities currently at their disposal, blocking ports or entire protocols just to eliminate access to a handful of known bad applications? For that matter, will such an approach even work? Or do they plot a more permissive course, allowing access to every application the business deems necessary or useful, simultaneously exposing the organization to greater risk and a myriad of unwanted applications that sap user productivity and consume valuable computing resources? The answer is “none of the above.” What organizations need instead is a next-generation firewall featuring application control.
