Resolution

The custom gatelet feature may not correctly detect and inspect a file upload for some applications such as Whatsapp because of the way the SaaS's mechanisms perform the upload including the file ecryption before the upload.

For Whatsapp a Full Gatelet would be required to properly inspect or isolate the file.
