Get Started    

Enable File Inspection for the Web Policy

For the Web policy, File Inspection is enabled through a ruleset. File Inspection uses Cisco's Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) as well as Umbrella's antivirus engines to scan for malicious files. Once inspections are complete, a file is either delivered or the connection is terminated and the user is served the IP of the block page.

Note: You must first enable File Inspection before you can enable Threat Grid Malware Analysis.

Monitor and Review File Inspection

Once you have enabled File Inspection, to monitor and review Umbrella's inspection activities, use the Security Activity and Activity Search reports. For more information, see Review File Inspection Through Reports.

Before You Start — Install a Root Certificate

A root certificate must be installed on all machines. For more information, see Manage Certificates.

Enable File Inspection for a Web Policy

By default, File Inspection is enabled.

  1. Navigate to Policies > Management > Web Policy and click Add or expand an existing ruleset.
