Can a Discover rule be created to delete files.


At this point Vontu only allows rules to copy or to quarantine files.

You want to ensure that initially no files are being deleted due to false positives or policies that are being tested. 

Vontu usually recommends quarantining files to a folder for review.
After reviewing the quarantined files you can delete the content of the folder manually.
