defense + setting

how does the defense + setting work “create rules for safe applications”
what kind of rules does it create and what is considered a safe appication?
is it checked in the cloud
thanks for the help

A safe application is an application that is on the white list. The white list is actually two list:

  • Individual executables of programs. This list is both a list on your computer and in the cloud
  • Files that are digitally signed and which publisher is in the Trusted Software Vendors list. This list is both on your computer and in the cloud

All actions are allowed except for accessing Protected File and Folder and Registry Keys. Then the application will ask.

thanks a lot for your help
