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 lists: A File Hash 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 do not want the ETP Proxy to scan.

When you add an Exception list to a policy, it is assigned 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.
