Block single peripheral, whilst allowing all by default

In Sophos Central, you can block all peripherals by default - and then have an allow list

You can't do it the opposite way round, where you allow all devices and just have a block list.

When trying to create a Peripheral Exemption to Block a device, with the default being Allow, it says that "Exemptions cannot be stricter than global settings."

This mean that for a particular customer, we have to Allow around 300 USB devices just to block a singular device which a user brought in with malicious content on.

It would be good to just block a singular device, whilst allowing all devices by default
