Here’s the video how-to:

To do this, select the ‘Alert Rules‘ section.

First, we’ll add a rule for downloads.

Then, we’ll name the rule “EXE and PNG blocked”.

In the file extension box, we’ll put EXE and PNG  separated with a semicolon (exe;png).

Checking the button ‘Cancel/Delete download‘  box will prevent the download. The rule work as this:

As the file is downloaded, GAT Shield sense that the file is downloaded and there is a rule against it, the file is removed from the downloads straight away.
The downloaded file will be deleted.

We can then apply these rules to a User, Group, or OU. You can also exclude a User, Group, or OU from this rule.

In the end-user action, you can pick what will happen if a user violates this rule.

You can check the report file name screen capture and webcam captured to see who downloaded the file and what their screen and webcam were capturing at the time of the download.

You can also Allowlist certain web pages Allowlist rule will not apply.

If you uncheck the ‘cancel/delete download‘ button but have any reports checked, you will only receive a report instead of interrupting to download.

That concludes this GAT Shield how-to.
