Office document properties for DLP

Hi,

Is there a possibility in SWG 7.x to check the microsoft office document properties, for example "Category:"?

We want to use this to enhance our DLP capabilities.

Thanks

Hi Stefan,

is this for SWG (Secure Web Gateway) or MWG (McAfee Web Gateway)?

Hi Michael,

It's MWG (McAfee Web Gateway) 7.0.1.5.

Hi Stefan,

thanks for the clarification. This is something MWG can't do. It just can detect the media type and extract text from the body of the document.

best,

Michael

Hello Stefan

MWG 7 can extract some office documents properties (not only for ms office files, but also for some other types). But it doesn't expose them as separate properties, and put them as part of text. For example,

Some text...

------------------------------: Meta information
AppName = Microsoft Office Word
Author = Some user
ClipFormat = MSWordDoc
CompObjReserved = Word.Document.8
Last Editor = Another user
Organisation = Secure Computing Corporation
Revision Number = 1
Template = Normal.dot
UserType = Microsoft Office Word-Dokument


Or you need to have this information as separate properties?

Hello Alex,

I need to have this information as separate property.

Stefan
