How to scan end-users home network-mapped folder in RSA Data Loss Prevention 9.6 and later
RSA Product Set: RSA DLP RSA Product/Service Type: Datacenter RSA Version/Condition: 9.6 SP2 Platform: Windows Server 2008R2/Windows 7
Question: Is RSA Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Datacenter Discovery agent capable of scanning end-users home network-mapped folders?
By default, RSA DLP Discovery Agents don't scan and capture a violation of the user "Home" network-mapped folder when "paths to scan" is set to all fixed drives or all drives (fixed and removable).
It can be configure manually by editing the agent-scan group configuration on EM GUI as following:
Go to Admin > Datacenter > configuration and status > Agent Group > Edit config > Paths to scan
Select "Scan Only" These folders >
Specify the UNC path (example: \\192.168.x.x\home\userA)
Best Practice to configure all your users home network-mapped folders is through using grid-worker scanning by pointing it to scan the parent home directory for all users on the shared-network file server.
