Customer environment has Google Drive (or possibly similar programs like Dropbox or SkyDrive) that can share data outside the network via cloud networking and they wish to detect and possibly block data or notify users of their transgressions.
Etrack 3224088. Note: These steps are similar to those of Dropbox and SkyDrive. The only change is the executable names.
Step 1: Set up Google Drive properly in the AFAC (Application File Access Control).
In the Enforce Console: System --> Agent --> Application Monitoring
Add Application or Edit a previous entry:
Application Monitoring Configuration
Check one or more activities to enable application monitoring.
Send to Clipboard
Enable monitoring of local drive, removable media and other filesystem activities.
Monitor Application File Access
Monitor writing to CD/DVD
Monitor all files that application attempts to:
Step 2: Ensure that AFAC is enabled on the Endpoint Server.
In the Enforce Console: System --> Agent --> Agent Configuration
*If you need a config to work with, clone their currrent config* Inside the configuration under the Agent Monitoring area is the Applications section with a single option. Ensure that Application File Access is checked.
You can either Save and Apply or just Save. If you only save or if you cancel, make sure the configuration has been applied to the Endpoint Server.
In the Enforce Console: System --> Agent --> Agent Configuration. Click the Apply Configuration button. Select the appropriate server and choose the correct configuration from the dropdown menu on that right. Click the Apply and Update button.
Step 3: Set up a response rule. (If the customer has a response set up already, skip this step)
In the Enforce Console: Manage --> Policies --> Response Rules
If the customer is looking to Notify or Block the action, make sure the Action is Endpoint Block / Notify / User Cancel If the customer is looking to only apply this response to Google Drive (and any other applications being monitored), you can select Protocol or Endpoint Monitoring and choose Endpoint Application File Access under conditions.
Step 4: Set up the proper policy.
In the Enforce Console: Manage --> Policies --> Policy List
Any previously created policies should trigger the Google Drive response. If you are unsure, your best option would be to create a simple keyword policy, apply the appropriate Google Drive response, and test.
