False Positive Generic.ml pronamics

Hi Team.

We design and build applications for many industries.
These applications include Estimation and Project Management software
Currently, one of our application EXE's are triggering alerts on VirusTotal.com, and we need to have this cleared as the files are safe.
What I am looking for is not only getting this whitelisted, but an explanation as to WHY this is flagged.



Palo Alto Networks Generic.ml

While we are certainly looking into signing our source code moving forward, we need to understand what the cause of this trigger is.
Signing will just authenticate us as being a legitimate business, which we are, established in 1997, but not eradicate the engine triggers.
We deliberately obfuscated source code data in order to protect our Intellectual Property. Standard practice for any code written IP.
If AV engines such as yours are flagging us for this practice, what can be done our end to minimise the footprint or flagging triggers?

Kind Regards
Pronamics Support

File submitted for review. 

Also wanted to add if you're wanting to know why this file is being flagged, looking at the Behavior tab in VT will give you that information:
