How to assign more than one HIPS rules to a single machine?


I'm currently need to configure Application blocking rules to one machine to 'Allow' running of Process1 and Process2.

There are rules already defined for both Process (says Rule1 and Rule2).

I found that I cannot assign both of them on one single machine. The interface does allow only 1 rules per one machine. And I don't want to create Rule3 just to allow Process1 and Process2.

Is there anyway to assign more than 1 rule on that machine?

I'm currently using ePO 4.5 and HIPS7.

Re: How to assign more than one HIPS rules to a single machine?

HIPS 7.0 Application Blocking is not a multi-slot policy; only one policy can be assigned.  You'll need to add all app blocking rules into a single policy (much like HIPS Firewall).
