Block Password protected files in NDLP or WG

Jump to solution

Is there any way to block Password protected files in NDLP or WG?

I have tried somethings that in Community but no luck.

My requirenment not to read and block the content of the password protected file, but block them completely with out pass through Webgateway or NDLP.

As an example .zip file should allowed but password protected .zip files should block.

Thanks in advance.

Password protected and encryted files are easy to block on the MWG.  The property for that is Body.IsEncryptedObject, and simply a true or false option.

The NDLP is a bit trickier.  There is no global option for encrypted files.  The best you can do is look at the Templates section and create a Construction of "Content Type" "is any of" and choose the following options:

  • EncryptedExcel
  • EncryptedWord
  • EncryptedPDF
  • EncryptedZip

Hi,

In the NDLP create a policy with the content type as ''EncryptedZip" and the action as 'Block'
