When files are accessed in this way it is likely transfering over port 443. This will cause both Scan Engine and SharePoint to see this as an Encrypted Container.


Allow encrypted containers in both the Scan Engine settings and the SharePoint console.

In Scan Engine:

  • Log into the console (https://<server IP address>:8004).
  • On the left hand side click on Policies.
  • Expand the center column and click on Filtering.
  • Click on the Container Handling tab at the top.
  • Uncheck the box next to "Delete encrypted containers".
  • Click on Apply and Save in the upper left hand corner.
