Controlling network access

This protection mode makes it possible to control specific applications’ incoming or outgoing access to networks.

Access can be filtered by:

  • Network events such as "bind", "accept" (server rule) and "connect" (client rule),
  • TCP and UDP protocols,
  • Specific ports,
  • Specific IPv4 or IPv6 addresses.

Communications between the SES Evolution server and agents do not need to be explicitly opened as the agent's self-protection mechanism guarantees that no security rules can block communications.

Network rules make it possible to:
  • Protect a server by controlling access to the host,
  • Force users of a service in the company to use a specific application to access a given network resource.
