  9. Malware Confidence levels are Very High, High, Medium, Low, and Very Low. They match that level and any level higher than that. For example:
    • A file with a Malware Confidence of High would match a rule that is HighMediumLow, or Very Low

    • It is best practice to create the policy with rules in descending order of Malware Confidence.

  11. Add an optional Exception. Choose an option for Except, then click Next.
