Re: Does McAfee DLP OCR support cyrillic languages?

Hello @IRomich96 ,

Scanning image files with Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

McAfee DLP Prevent appliances now support OCR for classifications. This feature allows you to scan images attached to emails, images uploaded in web posts, and images found in other network traffic. When the text extractor comes across an image file, a second pass is made with OCR to extract text and classify the file according to the relevant rules. The feature also works with images saved as PDF. If a PDF contains both text and images, it is scanned with the text extractor in the usual way.

OCR scanning works with all McAfee DLP-supported languages, and most Western and Asian languages. Text recognition is poor with European languages, such as Russian and Greek, which do not use the Latin alphabets. The recognition is also poor with languages written in right-to-left scripts, notably Arabic and Hebrew.
