You have successfully installed your new ThinScale Management Console 5.2x as seen from this article,

and you are now wondering how to create configuration-specific to your Secure Remote Worker within the Profile Editor.

This article will explain the new Access Policy configuration added in the 6.2.x release,  one by one.


In order to configure the policies, tick the Enable Access Policies checkmark:


Enable Rule Logging will log the app blocking events.

The Passive Mode will stop enforcing the blocking of the apps, but will still log what apps are being blocked and what are being allowed.


Operators

Like AEP/AEPO/ SEP, also Access Policy have the condition and triggers relationship. You can have multiple rules concatenated with an and/or relationship, pick a condition that evaluates using an operator, and a value.

There are different operators.
