In preparation for an upcoming sensor release the dashboard will additionally display two new options for administrators to whitelist applications from the Settings > Reputation page:
IT Tools - this functionality will allow users to assign an initial elevated trust to applications that are dropped by IT Tools that are known to their organization. This trust will be assigned to both programs and scripts written by the initial installer. Detailed information about the IT Tools designation will be provided in the updated user guide.
Certs - this functionality will allow users to assign an initial elevated trust to applications that are signed by a specified publisher and Certificate Authority. Detailed information about Certs will be provided in the updated user guide.
The IT Tools and Certs options will not have any effect on application trust levels until the device has been updated to the upcoming release.
