Access Mode Template

This template creates a configuration that checks if the remote device is connected externally. It can be found in the COMPLIANT APPLICATION ACCESS category when filtered for REMOTE platform.

If the remote device is connected externally, you can choose between two actions:

  • Hides applications with FSLogix App Masking within the session if the remote device is connected externally.
  • Denies access to applications with Microsoft AppLocker within the session if the remote device is connected externally.

deviceTRUST requires some simple but essential configuration steps to be performed to enable the template for your remoting and DaaS environments. We will guide you step-by-step through simple deviceTRUST configuration steps to enable the template within your remoting or DaaS environment.

We will perform the following steps:

  1. Step 1: Prerequisites
  2. Step 2: Contexts
  3. Step 3: Actions

Step 1: Prerequisites

If the required deviceTRUST components (Agent, Console, Client Extension and License) are not yet installed, please visit the Getting Started for Remoting and DaaS guide and complete step 1 to 5 and then continue here with step 2 below.

Step 2: Contexts

The template has imported the following contexts:

Context Description Customizations
Access Mode
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Defines if the remote device is internal or external to the corporate network.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
You must update the following context condition with data suitable for your environment:

REMOTE - REMOTING CLIENT OUTBOUND DNS Equals *.REMOTING_HOST_DNS_HERE:3389
When using Microsoft RDP remoting protocol, replace *.REMOTING_HOST_DNS_HERE:3389 with your remoting hosts dns suffix.
Example: *.demo.devicetrust.local:3389

REMOTE - REMOTING CLIENT OUTBOUND DNS Not Equals *.REMOTING_HOST_DNS_HERE:3389
When using Microsoft RDP remoting protocol, replace *.REMOTING_HOST_DNS_HERE:3389 with your remoting hosts dns suffix.
Example: *.demo.devicetrust.local:3389
Note:
  • If a context is not needed, it can be deactivated or deleted. In addition, the corresponding task sequence within the relevant action must be deleted too.

Step 3: Actions

The template includes an FSLogix App Masking and a Microsoft AppLocker enforcement action that actively controls access to applications, depending on the technology available. By default both actions are disabled.

Action Description Default State Customizations
Access Mode - Conditional Application Access - Enforcement - FSLogix App Masking
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hides applications with FSLogix App Masking within the session if the remote device is connected externally.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Deactivated
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
You must update the following context condition with data suitable for your environment:

FSLOGIX APP MASKING
Replace ENTER_YOUR_FXA_PATH_HERE with your target .fxa file path on all FSLogix App Masking tasks.
Example: %ProgramFiles%\FSLogix\Apps\Rules\NotepadPlusPlus.fxa

TERMINATE APP
Replace ADD_PROCESS_NAME_X with your target process name on all Terminate App tasks.
Example: notepad++.exe
Access Mode - Conditional Application Access - Enforcement - Microsoft AppLocker
 
 
 
 
Denies access to applications with Microsoft AppLocker within the session if the remote device is connected externally.
 
 
 
 
Deactivated
 
 
 
 
You must update the following context condition with data suitable for your environment:

MICROSOFT APPLOCKER
Replace ENTER_YOUR_PATH_HERE with your target configuration on all Microsoft AppLocker tasks.
Example: %PROGRAMFILES%\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
Note:
  • If both actions have been disabled, the contexts will still be created.
