Exclusion filter for Cloud-based protection

The Exclusion filter enables you to exclude certain files or folders from samples submission. The files listed will never be sent to ESET labs for analysis, even if they contain suspicious code. Common file types (such as .doc, etc.) are excluded by default.


This feature is useful to exclude files that may carry confidential information, such as documents or spreadsheets.


To exclude files downloaded from, click Advanced setup > Detection Engine > Cloud-based protection > Submission of samples > Exclusions and add the exclusion **.
