Monitoring an application to create an exception for the application on Windows clients

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.

To monitor an application to create an exception for the application on Windows clients

  1. On the Exceptions Policy page, click Exceptions.

  2. Click Add > Windows Exceptions > Application to Monitor.

  3. In the dialog box, type the application name.

    For example, you might type the name of an executable file as follows:

    foo.exe

  4. Click Add.

  5. Click OK.
