In the Web GUI, go to Configuration > Object > Device Insight, enable the checkbox

Then, click to Add button to create a new profile, select the device based on category and operating system you want to manage.

Apply the Device Insight profile to policy control

Go to Configuration > Security Policy > Policy Control, create a new policy rule or select an existing one to apply the Device Insight profile. In the Device field, choose the Device Insight profile.

Go to Monitor > Network Status > Device Insight. Select one or more rules and click Remove to remove devices from the table. If the device is on the block list, it cannot be removed.
