Separate low risk process settings for different processes?

Can you have separate low risk process settings for different processes?  For example, can you have one set of low risk processes where no reads or writes are scanned, and another set of low risk processes where only reads are scanned.  I'm using ePO 5.9 to manage.  It seems like this would require VirusScan 8.8 to allow multiple low risk groups, but I've only seen a single Default, Low Risk, and High Risk group.

Re: Separate low risk process settings for different processes?

[I cannot believe your question has sat out in the community forum for almost 22 months now without a response. Anyhow...]

For single systems, not really.  However, if they are on different systems, then yes.  You would create new policies with different Low-Risk Processes settings, then assign those policies to different groups of systems.

Although, if you really wish to control this type of behavior on a single system, and you are not using the High-Risk Processes policy, then you could (in theory) define the High-Risk Processes policy as your alternate, secondary Low-Risk Processes policy. IMO, I don't think there's anything preventing you from using the High-Risk Processes policy to differentiate it from the Default Processes and Low-Risk Processes policies.

However, I would probably advise against doing this -- to avoid confusion with future policy maintenance (by others) -- even though it may be technically possible.

Hope this helps.
