Monitoring an application to create an exception for the application

When Symantec Endpoint Protection learns a monitored application, the application appears in the Application Exception dialog. You can create an exception action for the application in the Exceptions policy. The application also appears in the relevant log, and you can create an exception from the log.

If you disable application learning, the Application to Monitor exception forces application learning for the specified application.
