I would like to propose a new functionality. Let it be shared folder control. SEP cannot manage to detect unnknown viruses that place themselves into shared folders on network. Over the last two months I have found four different viruses that have placed themselves in a shared folder undetected. I would be happy if SEP could log, monitor or send a message if any new file was created in a specific folder.

Use Application and Device Control to monitor "File and Folder Access Attempts" for the specific folders that you are wanting monitored.

From that rule you can send alerts (email), popup notifications, create logs and/or block activity.
