Forcepoint DLP Endpoint (formerly known as TRITON AP-ENDPOINT DLP) supports the versions of Firefox listed in the Certified Product Matrix. Unsupported versions of the browser can cause compatibility issues.
When Mozilla releases new versions of Firefox, they have auto-update enabled by default, so unsupported browsers may be installed on endpoint machines.
If this happens, Forcepoint DLP (formerly known as TRITON AP-DATA) can monitor or enforce application controls such as file access, copy/cut/paste, and screen capture operations done on the browser, and in most cases, continue inspecting outbound content on the HTTP or HTTPS channel; however, other compatibility issues, such as decreased performance, can arise.
(To enable application controls, select Endpoint Application as one of your rule's destinations, and then configure Application Control in your action plan.)
To prevent possible compatibility issues, deploy only supported versions of Firefox and disable its auto-update feature. Instead, use the enterprise tools provided by Mozilla to proactively manage browser updates. This reduces the risk of an unsupported version being installed.
