It is recommeded to have certain Exclsuions created when SEP and DLP are installed on the same machine.

I would request you to contact the DLP (Vontu) Technical Support for the same.

Also, check this Article:

The Kvoop.exe is the one that scans the computer when you are running Endpoint Discovery to find confidential information stored on the Endpoint system. It is a process that is part of SMS SMTP 5 and it performs out-of-process (that's what oop in kvoop stands for) True Type file identification and filtering.


Hope that helps!!


Thanks In Advance
