Can I block a specific printer to print a confidential data?

I've been doing some tests here without sucess.  I have two network printers and I want to block some confidential data for printing in one printer and release to print in another.

Anyone know any way to do this?

Yes you can. Create a DGM (exact data) with the printer in it, then create your rule with what you want to detect ( some data AND DGM ) then block it. If you don't know how to create and use the Exact Data, support can walk you through it.

HI, DHaag

DGM tested but is not compatible with Endpoint Block and Notify. So how could block?

DHaag, I tested here and get the following message error:

Marked EDM, IDM, and/or DGM rules will not trigger Endpoint Prevent: Block and Endpoint Prevent: Notify response rules. For the policy to exhibit correct behavior, you may either modify the marked detection rule(s) or the marked response rule(s).

sorry, typo'd DGM should have been DCM. From the manual:

Endpoint Block and Endpoint Notify are applicable to
all Endpoint Prevent detection policies that are performed on the endpoint
computer. For example, Email/STMP, HTTP/HTTPS, CD/DVD, FTP, Print/Fax,
andUSBmonitoring all use Endpoint Block or EndpointNotify rules.

I don't think you can distinct between different printers,
If the possibility exists,it would be to ignore the printer you wish, but I do not believe you could do such a thing.
