Can I monitor IM traffic with DLP-endpoint?

I know that it's not in the endpoint DLP configuration, but maybe it can do it by some alternate method.


Would love to know. Thanks

Re: Can I monitor IM traffic with DLP-endpoint?

Hi @ISmith ,

The text uploads to IM applications cannot be monitored since all IM applications have end to end secure encryption.

However when a file is being accessed by these IM applications from the machine local drive, you can use DLP Endpoint to block IM applications from accessing the classified files. You would need to use the Application File Access Protection Rule for this requirement.


Thank you.
