    Good Exclusions

    Apprentice

      Anyone care to share what they use as their base exclusions if any.

      I have LANDesk AV installed on workstations and often face users complaining about it being slow, particularly it slowing down IE.

      I would be interested in hearing what people exclude in their enterprise

       

      Thanks

          Well - this is mostly a philosophical discussion really, as the true question is "how paranoid do you want to be". Somewhat "how blue is the ocean" type question :).

           

          Personally, I prefer on the side of "as paranoid as I can be, thank you very much" and don't do much in terms of exclusions, for my part.

           

          Every exclusion you add, adds a certain amount of risk - the question is where you / your organisation feels the cut off point between AV-vulnerability and performance is :).

            I am finding that there is a definate lag on machines (IE opening and others) even with the AV scanner set as a low priority task, by which it is causing people to point fingers and disable the scanner which is obviously something we don't want.

             

             

            I have the heuristics turned off. I am at a loss really on how to move forward.

             

             

            The minimum machine spec we have are xw8000s with 2gb ram.
