I got a few questions with a customer about how DLP works with microsoft files and winrar compression.
1. How DLP protect files from microsoft excel, microsoft word, etc that have password., how operate with them.?
2. How DLP protect files into a winrar with password.?
DLP is not going to be able to scan the content of password protected (encrypted) files for obvious reasons.
maybe the release notes will help?

If the password encrypts the file, DLPe cannot read its contents.
Word, Excel etc. allow use of passwords to make file/content read-only. If a password was used to make the file / contents read-only and not encrypt, then DLPe can read the contents of the file.
A much better answer than mine. Thanks Vimal.
