|Issue||How to prevent DLP Endpoint from monitoring certain files|
In certain circumstances such as application not able to run or slow in processing due to DLP Endpoint, it might be desirable to prevent DLP Endpoint from monitoring certain files.
To prevent DLP Endpoint Enforce from monitoring certain files, you need to add those files in the Tech Support Only section of the Endpoint Group Configuration in the Enterprise Manager. Bt default, the Endpoint currently ignores files with ".exe" and ".dll" extensions and also ignores files that start with "\\device\\","pipe\\".
As an example, one would need to enter the following in the Override Configuration under Tech Support Only section of the Endpoint Group configuration page:
Few things to note here:
1) Endpoint will ignore any file that starts with the path, so if you open a Network share using the above option, then anything copied over to the share will NOT be monitored.
2) This setting is system wide, and will be applicable for ALL application running on the system.
