Creating File Inspection Profiles


Use the ATP Cloud File Inspection Profiles page to create profiles to define which files to send to the cloud for inspection.

Before you Begin

To configure file inspection profiles:

  1. Select Configure>Threat Prevention> Feed Sources.

    The Feed Sources page appears.

  2. Under the ATP Cloud tab, select ATP Cloud realm, right-click or from the More list, select File Inspection Profiles.

    The ATP Cloud File Inspection Profiles page appears showing the existing file inspection profiles.

  3. Click the + sign to create new profiles.

    The Create Profile page appears.

  4. Enter a name for the profile. (You can create multiple profiles for file inspection.)
  5. In the File Categories section, select the file categories and the following actions from the list for each file category:
    • Do not scan—The file category will not be scanned.

    • Scan file up to max size—The maximum files size (up to 32MB) to scan. If a file falls outside of the maximum file size limit, the file is automatically downloaded to the client system.

    • Hash lookup only—Hash lookups are not recommended because, they are compared with the files that are already evaluated before.

    See Table 1 for the list of file types for each category.

  6. Click OK.
