When approval by publisher reputation is enabled, the list of all trusted publishers that meet the specified threshold is sent to all computers. This allows Carbon Black App Control Agents that receive this publisher approval to approve new files from approved publishers as soon as they are seen for the first time, even if the computer is disconnected from the server when the new file arrives.

In addition, the agent will approve all existing files from these publishers that were previously unapproved, unless they are explicitly banned.

Approval by publisher reputation has a low impact on the Carbon Black App Control Server and network traffic.

Only files whose certificates meet all requirements described in Approving or Banning by Publisher can be approved by publisher reputation.
