Data Loss Prevention Network Discover


By default the following file extensions (.txt .doc .xls .ppt .java .c cpp .h .js) will retain their original file type when Quarantined and replaced with a marker file.


To adjust the file marker extension that is left in place of a file that has been quarantined you will need to modify the following file on your Network Discover server: is located in \Vontu\Protect\config (/opt/Vontu/Protect/config for Linux)

Modify the following line: com.vontu.protect.extensions_not_replaced=txt|doc|xls|ppt|java|c|cpp|h|js

Example if you want all replaced marker files to be filename.doc.txt OR filename.ppt.txt 


To complete the change, save the file, then Restart the Vontu Monitor service.
