DLP Exception Rule for File Copy

Jump to solution

I created a rule to block all files being copy to/from Removable storage devices.

However, I wanted to exclude this rule for some company devices. How should I do that? 

Thanks.

There are two different rule types that cannot be mixed.

1. Data protetion rule (which is what you have.) It can be filtered by application, user, classification.

2. Device rule: which can be filtered by device information

You need a device rule, which has an exception for your list of device VID/PID.

Hello, User72274901.

 

You could use the same policy, however you would need to set up Device Definitions for the devices you would like to exclude. 

Once configured you could add those devices under the Exception tab of the policy in question.

Hello Mreaden,

Yes, this is what I'm intended to archieve, but sadly, I couldn't found the way to add the Device Definition I created to the Exception tab in the policy. (See the screenshot)

To best of my knowledge, I am not aware if we can use Device Definition in this rule.

User72274901,

You should probably use a Removable Storage Device rule. With this rule, you can specify the device definitions in question.
You would first need to create the Device Control definition. If you go to the Policy Manager and click on Definitions tab, under Device Control,
you could use either the Serial Number & End User Pair or Device Template to create a Removable Storage Device Template.
Once created you can create a Removabel Storage Device rule policy and add the newly created template as an exception.


Hope this helps.
