How to block applications with Application Patrol (App Patrol) on the NSG?

Question

In some cases, it is more suitable to use Application patrol instead of Content filtering. For example, applications like Netflix or Spotify, may use multiple domains, therefore Content filtering may fail to block all websites containing this application. App patrol works well in the same scenario, sicne it inspects the content of all traffic (regardless of domain) and looks for application patterns.

Answer

In Security gateway> Firewall, scroll down to find the Application patrol section and click the add button.

 

Enter Netflix to search bar and then click add button.

 

Turn on the log and then click the create button.

 

Scroll up then apply the App patrol file in firewall policy, for the instance the source is the LAN1 subnet.

 

In event log you can find the Application patrol category and the message conetent is the Netflix traffic has been drop.
