Max file size blocked by Prevent

There was a statement in the DLP version 8.5 release notes that files over 50 MB would not be blocked by the Prevent (issue originally from 8.0).  In the 8.6 release notes there is no mention of this issue anymore.  What is the max file size that is blocked by prevent in version 9.0?

Thanks in advance,

Re: Max file size blocked by Prevent

To clarify my question, we have a Network DLP running Prevent software version 9.0.3.  Right now we see that files over 50 MB are not scanned for content.  We have been told by McAfee support that files of any size are scanned.  What is the answer?


Re: Max file size blocked by Prevent

Your observations are correct.  Files over 50 meg are not scanned.
