Rule descriptions

Rule Description
Port Blocking Rule Blocks incoming or outgoing network traffic on specific ports or ranges of ports.
Note: When you block a port, Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) accesses are blocked.
File/Folder Blocking Rule Blocks read or write access to files and folders.
Note: Once you restrict access to a file or folder, the restriction remains in place until the administrator removes it. This helps prevent intrusions and stops them from spreading during an outbreak.
Registry Blocking Rule Protects registry keys or values by blocking these actions: read from, write to, create, or delete.
