You can allow users connect to Wi-Fi networks that you consider to be secure, such as a corporate Wi-Fi network. To do so, you must add the network to the list of trusted Wi-Fi networks. Device Control will block access to all Wi-Fi networks except those specified in the trusted list.

  2. In the application settings window, select Security ControlsDevice Control.
  3. In the Access settings block, click the Devices and Wi-Fi networks button.

    The opened window shows access rules for all devices that are included in the Device Control component classification.

  4. In the Access to Wi-Fi networks block, click the Wi-Fi link.

    The opened window shows the Wi-Fi network access rules.

  5. In the Access block, select Block with exceptions.
  6. In the Trusted Wi-Fi networks block, click the Add button.
  7. In the opened window, do the following:
    1. In the Network name field, specify the name of the Wi-Fi network that you want to add to the trusted list.
    2. In the Authentication type drop-down list, select the type of authentication used when connecting to the trusted Wi-Fi network.
    3. In the Encryption type drop-down list, select the type of encryption used for securing traffic of the trusted Wi-Fi network.
    4. In the Comment field, you can specify any information about the added Wi-Fi network.
