DLP Endpoint - MS Office 2003 file types

Created: 28 Jan 2013 | 2 comments

Hi Team,

I have a peculiar situation, where in the DLP is not capturing .xls file but at the same time it is capturing the same file in .xlsx format. The policy for detection is simple, capture all documents via usb / CD/DVD transfer.

I use DLP Endpoint - v 11.1.1

Let me know if there is a way to solve this problem.
