File type actions

On the configuration page (tab in the customer portal) it is possible to define a standard action per file type.

Three actions exist:

  • Allow - Take no action and proceed as usual.

  • Sanitize - File will be cleaned by Bodyguard CDR positive selection technology.

  • Block - File is denied, also when it is compressed or archived.


At startup the Bodyguard desktop agent is synchronized with the latest configuration.

If the Bodyguard desktop agent is already running, a synchronization can be manually forced in two ways:

  • Right click on the system tray icon of Bodyguard in Windows and click on "Check for updates".

  • Go to "Services" in Windows and restart the "Bodyguard" service.
