HDLP and CAD files

Hi everybody,

I'm currently testing DLP & EEFF solutions to secure our R&D files, which include CAD files (Dassault Catia).

I created a DLP policy with a few protection rules, such as e-mail and encryption. These policies target a tag which is manually applied for the moment.

My problem is, when I apply the tag on my CAD files, and then I modify and save these files, my tags are lost, and policies don't apply any longer.

I read KB53436 ( which explains that the minimum length of files is 350 characters. What about CAD files, whose content is not textual ?

Is my problem due to a bad setting ?

Software : Windows XP 32 & Windows 7 64 - CATIA v5 - HDLP - EEFF - McAfee Agent

Thanks in advance.

You need a tagging rule to tag the CAD files when they're saved.

Thnaks for the reply.

For the moment, I can't set a tagging rule. But with manual tag, I should not need a tagging rule, my tags should stay on the files when they're saved, right ?

No.  Look at KB53436.  "This also applies to tag preservation. If a tagged file is opened and saved, the tag will be lost if the saved document has less than 350 characters."

If you don't have a tagging rule the tag will get removed.
