Configure the Block List

You can configure an endpoint processes list to block from accessing a network. This reduces the amount of traffic that is redirected to the proxy server for filtering. Each Client Proxy policy is associated with a list of blocked processes. A process list is a list of processes that run on the endpoints. Windows process names must end with .exe and macOS process names don't require a file name extension. You can use the import and export option to upload and download the block list.

  1. In Skyhigh CASB, click the Settings icon.
  2. Select Infrastructure | Client Proxy Management.
  3. In the policy tree, select Configuration Policies.
  4. Select a policy from the policy tree.
  5. In For traffic on non-redirected port, select an option:
    • Allow traffic to go directly to destination — All processes are allowed to access the internet without going through a proxy server.
    • Block traffic for all processes not on a Bypass List — All processes are blocked from accessing the internet except for processes on the bypass list.
    • Block traffic for processes in this list: List of Processes to Block — All processes are allowed to access the internet without going through a proxy server except for the ones on this list.
      • Click List of Processes to Block to open List of Processes to Block. From the Add Process drop-down list, provide the following:
        • Process — Enter the process name. Windows process names must end with .exe. macOS process names don't require a file name extension.
        • Comment — Enter additional information.
        • +— Click this to configure another process.
