Scanning Exclusions for Specific Computer or User

It’s easy to Scanning Exclusions for Specific Computer or User in Sophos Endpoint Security, very useful to make this only effective for the individual instead of all managed computer and users.

By default, all machine are under Base Policy. We will create another Policy to reach the goal.

Go to Policy under Endpoint Protection, Add Policy -> Feature choose Threat Protection, Type chooses User in this tutorial I choose User, the policies will follow users across their devices.

add policy

Set policy name then move the user from Available Users to Assigned Users.

assign user

Go to Settings, uncheck Use recommended settings


Scroll down to Scanning Exclusions -> Add Exclusion, you can exclusion folder or file, e.g: I exclusion folder D:\path\to\exclusion\

add exclusion

The added policy will appear in Threat Protection. The users can bypass from Threat scanning and only effective on folder D:\path\to\exclusion\

new policy

Hope it help.
