Applications that are not in the official version of the Software Catalog, but that have been added to the local version on the appliance, are referred to as Locally Cataloged applications.
Not Allowed applications are applications that have been marked as Not Allowed on the Software Catalog page.
Windows and Mac applications can be marked as Not Allowed only if they are classified as Discovered, Not Discovered, or Locally Cataloged applications. Applications that are Uncataloged cannot be marked as Not Allowed until they are added to the Software Catalog. Applications that are marked as Not Allowed can be blocked or denying access on managed devices if those devices have an Application Control-enabled label applied to them.
See Using Application Control.
Applications in the Software Catalog are grouped into categories, such as Productivity Applications and Antivirus Utilities.
These categories are useful for Reporting and License Compliance. In addition, applications in the Operating System category cannot be metered.
At a specified interval, the appliance collects information about every executable installed on managed devices. This information includes the executable’s publisher, published date, file size, and registry information.
The information is compared to information in the Software Catalog to determine whether Discovered applications are Cataloged or Uncataloged. See Schedule metering and inventory collection intervals.
