Re: Block the Content based on Data Classifications

Hi seetha123,

Thank you for your question.

The rule you will be able to set for blocking, and you are able to build content classification criteria from data and file definitions.

More information can be found on our McAfee Data Loss Prevention 11.4.x Product Guide

Choose classifications page

Use case: Allow a specified user group to send credit information
