All Categories Management Content policy configuration

Content policy configuration

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.

Device groups

Devices can be assigned to a device group, each of which can have a distinct content policy configuration. This arrangement permits the differentiation of configurations, for instance, between standard users and administrators.

Security recommendation

It is generally advised to block all of the listed file types for which sanitization is not available. These file types are commonly used in malware attacks.


At startup the Bodyguard desktop agent is synchronized with the latest configuration. Any changes to the configuration will be synchronized in 60 seconds.
