Proximity Template

This template creates a configuration that checks the proximity of the remote device to a given position. It can be found in the COMPLIANT APPLICATION ACCESS category when filtered for REMOTE platform.

If the remote device is not in proximity to a given position, you can choose between two actions:

  • Hides applications with FSLogix App Masking within the session based on the proximity of the remote device to a given position.
  • Denies access to applications with Microsoft AppLocker within the session based on the proximity of the remote device to a given position.

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
Proximity
 
 
 
 
Defines the proximity of the remote device to a given position.
 
 
 
 
You must update the following context condition with data suitable for your environment:

REMOTE - LOCATION POSITION In Range 500 METERS FROM 0,0,…
Replace 0,0 with your target position and define the range to the given position on all conditions.
Example: 49.8971,8.9258
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
Proximity - Conditional Application Access - Enforcement - FSLogix App Masking
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hides applications with FSLogix App Masking within the session based on the proximity of the remote device to a given position.

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.

TERMINATE APP
Replace ADD_PROCESS_NAME_X with your target process name on all Terminate App tasks.
Example: notepad++.exe

Denies access to applications with Microsoft AppLocker within the session based on the proximity of the remote device to a given position.
 
 
 
 
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.
