Current implementation of SEP have restrictions on how the exceptions are define for scanning.  I would like the ability to have more flexibility in creating these exceptions so I can balance business need while maintaining a strong security posture.

We have the ability to exclude specfic directories from scanning.  We have the ability to exclude specific file extensions from scanning.

What we lack is the ability to exclude specific file extensions from scanning in a particular directory.  Additionally, further use of wildcards within the exception definition strings would be significantly helpful.

The use of wildcards on the exceptions has been always a request from customers. I agree with the need to extend it.
