Endpoint DLP Removable Storage Protection- Device Exception

There doesn't seem to be a way to create an exception for removable media device types within Endpoint DLP Data Protection.   For example, we allow Aegis securekey for work and I do not want to monitor for content saved to this device type.  The only exceptions I see avilable are classification, end user, or application.  Not device type, serial number, or name.  Any ideas?

Re: Endpoint DLP Removable Storage Protection- Device Exception

You cannot use device type, serial number and so in "Data Protection". Use "Device Control" instead, where you can create an exception for device template (device type, device id, volume serial number, ...), processes, serial number and user pairs and/or users exceptions.
