File Blocking in DLP is Content Aware?



We are in process to add DLP Endpoint wiht existing Mcafee, we don't have full DLP license and DLP Operation Mode having two option only (ful content protection is grey becuase of not having license for that)


1. Device Control and content aware removable storage protection (wihtout tag support)

2. Device Control Only


We setup option 1.


In our testing we found that file blocking is only working on extension based (DLP not scanning content) i.e. we blocked copying/executing EXE file from USB but if we just rename EXE file to some other extension whicn is not block then we can easily copy to USB Drive.


My question is:


1. DLP is not providing content scan protection or I have setup some thing wrong
