Issue/Introduction

Can files within an ZIPX container be detected?

Resolution

At this point Symantec DLP cannot natively detect ZIPX files.
Enhancement request PM-1698 has been filed.

As a workaround you could utilize custom content extraction in V11 onward or utilize the endpoint agent to prevent creating zipx files of sensitive information in first place.
