Hi 

You can block download from DLP. you can specify all file extension (i.e. .exe, .rar). Please follow below steps to do it (For ver 5.0)

Go to Security Profile > DLP > file filter > Create new > Name > specify all file pattern > go to sensor > create new profile > create new > select file and then specify > then apply to policy.

Hi,

 

Many Thanks for your help.

I have the last version, 5.2.2, and i didn't find DLP on Security profiles.

Is that replaced by "Enable Web Content Filter" in Web Filter profiles?
