Data Loss Prevention Endpoint Prevent

Issue/Introduction

You do not want to monitor Endpoint Agent download activity and want to know if this can be excluded.

Environment

Data Loss Prevention Endpoint Prevent from 12.0 to 15.0 MP1.

Resolution

- There is no setting to monitor only the upload stream and not monitor the download stream in Endpoint Prevent as both streams are being monitored.

- However if there are specific web sites that are used regularly to download only you can exclude them based on IP addresses or domain names on the Agent Monitoring tab of you Agent Configuration.

- Alternatively if one has Network Prevent setup in their environment one could possibly use this to detect uploads and ignore downloads within the network based on the network traffic filtered from a proxy server.
