    Hello,

     

    Sorry for my reply.

     

    Since there not comes any official replies yet. I decided to place some of my own suggestions;

     

    Based on your description there can be next meanings (maybe):

     

    --> HTTPS is not scanned (properly), but probably it possible to detect something 'before' established connection (and not certain pages under domain); So - if there is outcoming connection to known 'suspicious' IP (?!) or domain -- probably it anyway prevented.

     

    --> So - if most of this devices use https, but does it possible that there is not possible to use 'http'?

    And if possible - so maybe it can be a trigger for "not normal" situation as "connection under http";

     

    --> Also, as example, quite active status and network usage by this devices; Or kind of "not expected" view of this;

     

    Generally - I able to think that there is can be many of meanings (based on multi-layers protection; and only as additional points about certain specific features for this devices); And abilities handling "not normal situations" (also based on potential known troubles);

     

    I also able to think that there is quite many limitations and potential 'troubles with design" - so will be interesting to read official response from F-Secure SENSE team;

     

    Thanks!
