Re: DLP Logs

Yes. You can create a removable storage protection rule and set it to monitor. Then create an automated response in ePO to email an alert.

Re: DLP Logs

I don't see a DLP automatic response in automatic responses, tried to add new response no did you do it?

Re: DLP Logs

The event group is ePO Notification Events

Event type: Threat

The Filter I have is:

Detecting Product Name Equals: Data Loss Prevention

Event Description Equals: Email Protection ( you would change this to Removable Storage Protection)

Threat action equals: BL|EVDNC|MON|NTFY|ON (You would change this to match your rule, or you could leave this off) I use this to only see Email blocks.

Action: Send Email

Subject: McAfee DLP Email Event - User Blocked: {sourceHostName}/{sourceUserName}


User Name : {sourceUserName}

Host Name: {sourceHostName}

Event UTC : {detectedUTC}

IP address: {sourceIPV4}

Event Type : {eventDesc}

Action Taken: {threatActionTaken}

Also as far as a "log": Use the DLP Monitor plug-in, right? Set a filter to Removable Storage.
