Downloads in zip form?
yes they block the download of EXE files, it is a security risk to allow people to download EXE files. You know how some people don't know better and open things without knowning what they are opening. I guess that can be said for zip files also. But to assume that all companies allow the download of EXE files is ridicules in my opinion, if anyting both option should be available.
This also not the first time I have asked to have zip files added to the downloads.
So you're unable to download EXEs such as...oh...Microsoft security updates? I understand your frustation at not being able to get at the SCOL updates, at the same time blocking EXEs is a very heavy handed solution and, as you are painfully aware, not very viable for many situations. Better to put web AV if the concern is malware. All of which may be outside your control, I realize. Any chance you can get an exemption from this policy? How does your IT organization download content from the web, much of which is in EXE format?
I doubt your chances of getting RSA to change their download process. 😕
