Traps 5

L2 Linker



we have the anti-malware scanning, but I cannot seem to find a location in the polices to stop Traps scanning certain files C:\Pagefile.sys, c:\hiberfil.sys etc. 


I have added them into the Whitelist Folders but they still get scanned. 


Any ideas?

I believe that whitelisting folders is only going to stop Traps from scanning within that folder (ex: C:\windows.old) not specific files. Not sure that Traps 5 has this feature just yet. 

@BPry many thanks I figured this out, I am guessing Traps 5 will only get better as right now it seems to basic functions. 




From Ignite this week it's clear that while Traps 5.0 and the online functionality is the 'future', it's likely recommended that you stay with Traps 4.1 on-site for the time being. That being said I did get confirmation that Traps will see updates monthly and a new 'feature heavy' update will be released twice a year. So it's comforting to know that they know they still have plenty of features to add yet. 

This has to be the way, as other brands are now working towards anti-exploit and a cloud-basedhosting. We moved to 5 as we were hosting our ESM in Azure and I wanted toshut that down due to costs. 


But I am encourage by your feedback @BPry

The only option available for exclusions in the scheduled scan is folders. It does not provide an option to specify files.


Has anyone found a way to prevent the agent from scanning these files on the endpoints yet?
