Setup for Azure file sync

Hi all,

Is anyone using Azure File Sync?  According to Microsoft, AV products should filter out (exclude) file system objects that contain the "FILE_ATTRIBUTE_RECALL_ON_DATA_ACCESS" attribute (refer to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/files/storage-sync-files-planning#antivirus).

I read somewhere that McAfee ENS is compatible with AFS, however I can't find anything on how you setup this exclusion.  I am using ePO 5.10 and Engine version 6100.8979.8979

Is anyone using AFS, ENS, and ePO?  How did you set it up to prevent the recall of AZ stored files?

Thanks,

Mike

@FMG87 

Thank you for contacting McAfee Community, refer following steps to add exclusions through McAfee EPO and Let us know if that answers your query. 

To configure the above exclusions using ePO:

  1. Log on to the ePO console.
  2. Click System Tree.
  3. Select a system where you need to modify the policy.
  4. Click Actions and select Agent, Modify Policies on a Single System.
  5. Select Endpoint Security Threat Prevention from the Product drop-down list.
  6. Select the On-Access Scan policy.
  7. Click Show Advanced.
  8. Navigate to the Process Settings section, Exclusions list.
  9. Click Add.

Re: Setup for Azure file sync

Thank you Ryadav1 and BSharma for your replies.

Following your helpful post, did find how to exclude AV scanning based on directory (of folder) location, but that isn't what I'm looking for.

Is there a way to filter AV scans based on file attributes?  That is what MS is recommending.  If not using ePO then maybe something I can set on the scanning agent manually (outside of ePO)?

Any thought are appreciated.

Thanks

Mike
