Deleting a Network Policy will remove the Policy from any Circle the policy is assigned.

Network Policy is applied when an application accesses a protected file. Any activity from the process/application before a protected file is opened will not adhere to the network policy. Once a network policy is applied, the policy stays in place even when accessing non-protected content. To remove the network policy from the active process, close the application, and restart.

Rule Format

Inbound and Outbound Rules can be created with the following format.
