Why is Pearson Vue proctor program getting blocked by McAfee ?

I used a work laptop to take an exam with Person Vue - world renowned certification program. To my surprise, the McAfee endpoint protection was blocking it and making it behave abnormally.

I turned off McAfee features and it worked great, but there is a 55 minute policy enforcement rule set-up by my organisation, which meant the threat detection started after this time, and killed my exam almost at the end - loosing my work and causing frustration.

How can this happen, I have taken Exin and PeopleCert exams without any issue in the past on the same machine. 

Can you fix this? It's probably affecting a lot of people taking Pearson Vue certifications from work machines.
