Swif Joins Dreamit Ventures SecureTech, Recognized for Innovative AI-Powered SaaS Platform Ensuring Device Security Across Multiple Operating Systems

Dear Swif Family,

As we embark on a new chapter in 2024, we are thrilled to share exciting updates and initiatives that set the stage for a year of growth and innovation at Swif.

To enhance our commitment to data security, we are proud to introduce the Application Block Policy. This policy empowers our users with the ability to control app installations, updates, and operating system updates, ensuring a secure and reliable computing environment.

As part of our ongoing efforts to meet the highest standards of information security, this policy plays a pivotal role in the ISO 27001 audit. We understand the critical importance of safeguarding your data, and the Application Block Policy is a proactive measure to reinforce our commitment to your security.

Navigating Application Block Policy

Understanding the intricacies of the Application Block Policy is crucial for all users.

For instance, to block a macOS update, navigate to Settings -> Software Update and type the following Signing Id List: "platform:com.apple.preferences.softwareupdate.remoteservice". This will match specific apps signed by a particular team.

You can also block by application names, eg. Adobe.

As a practical example, attempting to open Acrobat Reader after implementing the policy will trigger an alert message. This ensures that our users are informed about the security measures in place while maintaining transparency about application restrictions.
