1. A non-transitory computer readable storage medium comprising instructions that, when executed on a computing device configured to perform a function on a communication network managed by a service provider, cause the computing device to at least:

  • send to a server a request to communicate with a remote computing device over the communication network;

    receive in real-time from the server a response indicative of a decision granting or denying the request, the decision being based on one or more policies that are stored at the server and based at least in part on input from an administrator; and

    enforce the response by enabling the requested communication with the remote computing device over the communication network when the decision grants the request and by disabling the requested communication when the response denies the request, the requested communication being enabled or disabled without accessing the one or more policies by the computing device.
