    Exclusions with VS High / Default Process policies




      We are modifying our existing Default VS policy with High / Low / Default policies.


      It's clear about Low risk process policy, where we add all trusted processes and for most of the applications / servers no scanning is performed with Low risk policies.


      But for High / Default policies everyone including McAfee support & forum discussions (Virus Scan Policy Best Practices) asked to exclude the same set of exclusions (file / folder exclusions for Windows / AD / SQL / Exchange etc.), which makes no sense. If we do so, then as per our understanding, there is no need for 3 different process policies, 2 are enough like Default & Low risk, then make file / folder exclusions with default policy, and add processes (trusted process for McAfee, Exchange, SQL etc) with Low risk process policy and disable the scanning for these process.


      Can someone explain in what perspective McAfee is saying to exclude the same set of exclusions with High / Default (It makes more sense if we do the file / folder exclusions just with default process policy and add trusted process with low risk policy)


      Thanks in advance
