It seems to me that PowerBroker, advertising itself as providing
application based policies, would need specific rules for Cygwin.  This
would either need cooperation from your IT department or even
enhancements from BeyondTrust.

It seems that PowerBroker works by inserting itself into every process
image.  That's not going to work.

Until Beyond Trust comes up with a fix, I'd say PowerBroker should be
added to the BLODA.
