Excluding applications from protection
You can exclude applications from the list of software protected from evasive exploits. You can also add excluded applications back to the list of protected software.
For FortiClient in managed mode, when FortiClient Telemetry is connected to FortiGate or EMS, an administrator may lock the list of protected applications. You can exclude applications from protection if EMS has not locked FortiClient Console.
To exclude applications from protection:
- On the Malware Protection tab, click the Settings icon.
The list of protected applications displays under AntiExploit > Exclusion List.
- Beside each application you want to exclude, click Exclude.
The application is excluded, and the button name changes to Unexclude. Click Unexclude to protect the application again.
