Access Protection exclusion with comma in digital signature

Somewhat related to an old post which never got a proper answer.

We use Endpoint Security in combination with ePO. For a subset of computers I'm trying to exclude the WhatsApp application, which installs in **\Users\*\AppData\Local\Whatsapp\Whatsapp.exe in Access Protection, which is otherwise blocked by rules that don't allow any executales being ran from the profile paths. I want digital signature checking on that one, but there is an issue there. The signature is:

C=US,S=California,L=Menlo Park,O=WhatsApp, Inc,CN=WhatsApp, Inc

But the commas in 'Whatsapp, Inc' are treated as seperators and hence I can't save it like that as ePO reports an error. When I quote them like this:

C=US,S=California,L=Menlo Park,O="WhatsApp, Inc",CN="WhatsApp, Inc"

ePO accepts it, but then I keep gettings reports on that file being opened. So how would one enter a signature with commas in it?

Re: Access Protection exclusion with comma in digital signature

I am moving this one to the ENS group, the extension when you do the exclusions is part of the product and they could advice the proper way of excluding this file
