Use exclusions to improve performance

ESET Dynamic Threat Defense is capable of automatic analysis; a user can decide to exclude files and locations from the submission process for such as sensitive data, or trusted files or locations. By excluding files and locations, you can decrease the load on your network components. A high number of submitted files can cause slowdown on network components (e. g. Proxy) and delay the delivery of analysis results. Follow the 3 step guide below to decrease the overall number of submitted files and improve the performance of your system.
