ePO: Navigate to the ENS policies. You want to be looking at the On Access  Scan policy. Here you can add exclusions. You can also define low and high risk processes which you may need to configure. 

ENS console locally: Open the Console > Settings > Threat Prevention > Enable Advanced > On Access Scan


You can use wildcards to define exclusions:

And here are some more info on the low/ high risk process definitions:
