Re: ENS Adaptive threat Protection blocking McAfee Web Control?

Hi @User27605043 ,

JTI/Suspect detection would have a Rule ID associated with it. Its a Joint Detection.

There are couple of things to look here.

1) Is this a repeated detection or a one time event?

2) Open related threat event on ePO and look for Story Graph at the bottom of the page. It may contain more information on why it was blocked.

3) Refer ATP debug logs matching the same time as the detection (AdaptiveThreatProtection_Debug.log). Let us know the Rule ID.
