Can a policy template be modified to only create one match for each unique SSN?  This would be helpful when scanning documents where multiple instances of a Social Security Number would appear, such as tax documents.


Counting unique matches only on keywords in policies, such as single instances of the same SSN, is possible in version 11 and higher of Symantec DLP.

Earlier versions do not have this functionality, and the only workaround is to upgrade.
