Application: GetPrivate VPN

GetPrivate is a VPN (virtual private network) that makes all the internet connections go through servers located world wide. It uses Point-to-Point Tunnelling Protocol (PPTP). This application can be blocked by using these application signatures, or by enabling blocking for PPTP application in PROTOCOLS category of Application Control. For this application, blocking the DNS queries, and the HTTP requests are enough to block the app before it makes the PPTP tunnel. However, this might not work for other apps that tunnel traffic over PPTP. So, be advised to enable blocking of PPTP app signatures for the general case.
