Working with the Exe Explorer
You can use the Exe Explorer module to create a list of executable files, scripts, and macros that you want to authorize.
Use Exe Explorer for a newly configured reference computer to ensure that only clean (uncompromised) files are authorized. The reference computer does not have to be the same computer that the Management Console is installed on. You can browse the network and select any available computer as your reference. You may manually assign macros and scripts to the central file authorization list using the Exe Explorer module, although Ivanti recommends that you do this using the Log Explorer module.
Before using the Exe Explorer module, you must set up the default options for this module. The default options determine the way Ivanti Device and Application Control searches computer directories and how results are displayed. When you choose the root directory of a computer, the search process creates a list of all executable files, scripts, and macros on the computer. This process can be slow and is typically done when you want to check all the applications installed on a computer.
Restriction: Only administrators with defined user access rights can use the Exe Explorer module.
- Setting Up the Exe Explorer Default Options
The Exe Explorer searches computer directories for executable files, scripts, and macros.
- Adding a File Group
File groups simplify the process of administering large numbers of executable, script, and macro files for users. Instead of individually authorizing files, you can logically group files together logically by creating file groups.
- Renaming a File Group
You can rename an existing file group.
- Deleting a File Group
You can delete an existing file group.
