DLP Endpoint: Web Policy

Jump to solution

Hello,

    I created a web policy that looks for sensitive data movement online and offline.  For example, someone tries to email a sensitive file to themselves using Yahoo or Google mail.   I noticed after I had applied the policy that now I am constantly getting the DLP pop-up window as I browse in Chrome or any browser.  I need to tune this back some so that it actually only captures sensitive data movement.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

HI @itsmevic ,

You are doing it correctly. 

DLP Endpoint will go ahead and monitor or block as per your rules reaction for these classifications.

You can fine tune the classifications by removing the classifications which are not required as per your requirement, or you can create your classifications based on your organizational requirement.

 

If you wish to inspect only file upload you can select file upload only over there in the conditions tab and if you do not use DLP prevent in your environment and use only DLP Endpoint you can uncheck the "McAfee Network DLP"

Hi Jithendran, thank you for your response.  I've attached the screenshot for your review. What I've done is use many of the "built-in" filters to look for under the "Classification" section of the Condition tab.  It applies to ALL users.  I did try and adjust it some to only include Web addresses (URL) from sources like Dropbox, OneDrive, Popular webmail (Yahoo, Google) and Social Media Sites, as you see depicted in the screenshot.  My idea behind this was to be more specific with the websites so that people would not constantly get that popup when doing general web browsing.  Lastly, I set the Upload type to "is any data upload (ALL)."  I did try selecting  "is file upload" but it's telling me when I try and save it that the condition is not supported by McAfee DLP Prevent.
