Ability to exclude extensions on ATP?

Hi Team,

Most websites are using gzip to optimize their webs. In this case, a single web site can occupy 30-40 files in once.

This make the ATP file limit become a bottleneck. For SMB firewall, the limit just 300 in an hour, we could simply get 300 files to scan in 5-10 mins with few hosts.

If we are not running CSa, how do we overcome this issue?

    Hi @Nat

    I guess you already tried to exclude the "Archives" from the Capture ATP settings / Bandwidth Management?

    The only other way would be probably through App Rules, you need to create a Match object which covers the unwanted file types, create an App Rule and use the Action Bypass Capture ATP.

    Even in small environments these limits can be reached real quick, one of my customers (5 users) inspected IMAP traffic and it reached the limit real quick.
