Exception lists

Exception lists allow you to maintain the privacy of users who access trusted, sensitive websites that do not require ETP protection. There are three types of exception lists:
  • Custom exception lists: A custom exception list specifies domains and IP addresses that are bypassed by ETP Proxy.
  • File hash exception lists: A file hash exception list specifies the hashes of files that you don’t want scanned by data loss prevention (DLP).
  • URL exception lists: A URL exception list specifies one or more URLs that you don't want the ETP Proxy to scan.

When you add an exception list to a policy, it's assigned the bypass action by default so that ETP Proxy does not scan the domains and IP addresses. For more information on policy actions, see Policy actions.
