          It might be best to contact your McAfee reseller and get some professional help - that way you can fully understand the product?

              You would have needed a grant number to access the evaluation site - so you must have a McAfee reseller?

                  Screen Shot protection uses tagging to protect the file. This means the file itself is protected regardless of the actual content in the file. Files can be tagged either manually or by using the Discovery feature of DLPE. Discovery will crawl the system and identify files that contain information that match the content criteria set for the scan. Once the file is tagged, screen shot will respect the tag on the file.


                  Content protection is designed for in flow data such as sending an email or transferring a file. Screen shot protection does not scan all of the open files on the system before allowing the screen shot to be copied to the clipboard but rather checks if open files have specific tags.


                  Depending on the version you are testing with this works a little different. Take a look in the product guides and it explains it in a little more detail:

                    Hi jhall,


                    Thanks for the reply , i will try to implement this. I want to ask one more question is that possible to tag "jpeg" files. Let say i have scan multiple document in the Jpeg format and i want to tag all the file in the folder.

                      Endpoint discovery scan with content classification as an action.


                      Or you can do an application content classification by identifying the scanner app.

                        Dear Abanaru,


                        how we can configure configure endpoint discovery with content classification as an action.





                        • 9. Re: McAfee DLP

                          You start by creating a classification then an "endpoint discovery rule - local file system" and end up by assigning it to an "endpoint scan" of the local file system.


                          The content classification can be set as an action in the creation of the "endpoint discovery rule - local file system".
