Monitor New App-IDs

Get visibility into newly-categorized App-IDs on your network, so that you are best equipped to update your security policy to most effectively control application traffic.
The New App-ID characteristic enables you to monitor new applications on your network, so that you can better assess the security policy updates you might want to make. Use the New App-ID characteristic on the ACC to get visibility into the new applications on your network, and to generate reports that detail newly-categorized application activity. What you learn can help you make the right decisions about how you to update your security policy to enforce the most recently-categorized App-IDs. Whether you’re using it on the ACC or to generate reports (or to Ensure Critical New App-IDs are Allowed), the New App-ID characteristic always matches to only the new App-IDs in the most recently installed content releases. When a new content release is installed, the new App-ID characteristic automatically begins to match only to the new App-IDs in that content release version.
  • Generate a report with details specifically regarding new applications (applications introduced only in the latest content release).
