With Application Monitoring enabled, Symantec Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Endpoint Agent attempts to hook in and monitor any application. Certain applications may perform poorly with this monitoring enabled. In that case, Administrators may need to whitelist the application.
From the online help regarding application monitoring :
By default, DLP Agents monitors Clipboard, print, network (HTTP and FTP), and file system (removable disc, local drive, and network share) activity on all applications. You can add applications when you want DLP Agents to monitor files that applications open or read. You can also add applications when you want to prevent Symantec Data Loss Prevention from monitoring the application.
Note that on occasion it may be necessary to make changes and update the agent configuration for the new application monitor.
To ignore macOS applications from being monitored:
Symantec Data Loss Prevention Endpoint Agent will need to check in to update before the changes will be effective.
If the application name that you are whitelisting contains a dot in its name the dot must be escaped with a backslash.
For example an application with the name Tosca.Automation.Agent.exe we would add it's Binary name like this Tosca\.Automation\.Agent\.exe
